Lucky day...

In more ways than one!
I've been coveting Happy Zombie's fabric line, Holiday Happy
Browsing through I came across this shop and he had it on sale...yippee! 
Then I received an email saying I was his 1000th sale and won a $15 gift certificate for his shop. How cool is that?!

Short and sweet...
Hope everyone has a good Thanksgiving.
I'm thankful for all my family, friends and good health.
Material things mean nothing without them.

Siggy Blocks

Got my Modern Siggy blocks done,
except I need to sign all of them now.
Started sewing the FB Siggy blocks, here,
a little easier because these are larger blocks.
Both are looking good!
Kind of lazy day today, rainy this morning.

Modern Siggy Block

Working on the Modern Siggy blocks, they're due before the FB one is. Coming along nicely, this quilt is going to be great. Hopefully everyone will get their blocks done early and sent to Rachel so we can get ours back sooner.

New Year

I've signed up for 2 Siggy block swaps. One through Facebook, here, and one on Flickr, here. Started picking out fabrics and getting them ironed. The FB one is batiks on white on white, the Flickr one is modern( Amy Butler etc.) on white. I have most of the fabric, just need to pick up another Soire'e charm pack and a yard of Moda white. I'll get that tomorrow, quilt club day! First of the new quilt. I have lots of show and tell, so does my SIL Cynthia. Just wish it wasn't so darn cold out! Too cold for NC, take it back IL.
