I won!

Look what I have won in the Quilters Gallery Blog Hop Party!
It is a "Jelly Girl" pattern from Fig Tree & Company and a jelly roll of Moda's Fruitcake line by Basic Grey. While I do like holiday theme fabrics, what I like a lot more about this line is the fact that it isn't the typical Christmas colors or prints. And I'm really interested in getting the pattern. Those that know me know that I don't like anything curved at all when it comes to blocks (we just fight non-stop) so I'm very into patterns that look like curves but actually aren't curves at all. But I will tell you that when it comes to fabrics or the quilting itself, swirls and twirls are my very favorite of all. Thank you so very much Kristen!

I did enjoy the blog hop though I didn't get to visit every single blog. With all the craziness here the last week or so, I'm lucky I got any time at all to hop. Hopefully the next hop will be at a time that isn't so hectic for me. And next year, when Michele does this again (I hope she does and thank you Michele for putting it all together) I'll be prepared because I have resolved to make one really huge New Year's resolution for 2012, to have all my gifts bought and wrapped before Halloween. Having both kids with birthdays right before Christmas and all the school events we now have to participate in, it is impossible to shop this time of year. I want to enjoy the holidays with my kids instead of running around the stores like a crazy lunatic trying to get it all done. Will I be successful? Well I am one determined woman but you'll just have to make sure you keep checking back here to see how I do.

ooo...nice win with that jelly roll! I'm enjoying some of the not-so-traditional holiday prints and colors too.

Your new year's completely can do it!

I'm just getting around to catching up to blogs since the holidays and saw this ... YOU'RE WELCOME! And thank you for the sweet little note that you sent (although I don't know how you found time to do that during this time of year)! My Honey saw it and remarked how sweet it was too!

I'll be reading to see what you do with it, this pattern or something else!
