Favorite Things Friday!

Greetings all and a warm welcome to our new followers!  I'm really thrilled that you're joining us....

We're smiling here in New York State as the weather is FINALLY beginning to feel like spring!

The ice is melting from the Finger Lakes and the weatherman is predicting unseasonably warm temperatures for the next few days!  Woohoo!

Here are a few of my Favorite Things on Friday!
Warm temps, calm (ice free) waters, a bundle of fabric, and some Aurifil Thread!  Life is good....

This beautiful bundle of "Bouquet Memories" by Hoffman California Fabrics is courtesy of Bear Creek Quilting Company...  Wait until you see what we have in store for you!

Here is a closer look....
Yep, I'm going to cut it up and sew it all back together using my favorite thread - Aurifil Mako Cotton 50 Wt for piecing, hand applique and quilting - love that thread (and just look at those luscious colors - swoon!).

If you haven't already -- be sure to get in on Week 2 in a Month of Monday Giveaways!!

Not 1 -- but 3 copies of our new

Have a joyous day and weekend all -- and thanks again for your sweet comments and support!
