Oh Mr. Postman!

I couldn't be more excited about winning this LARGE box of "Family Tree" scraps from Deb Strain's (for Moda) recent Blog Giveaway at debstrain.blogspot.com.

Imagine my excitement when I opened the box and walaaaa!

"These are a few of my favorite things!" 

Red birds!


and more birds!  

I just couldn't contain myself.  Within minutes I had the fabric out of the box and sorted on the floor!

DH just shaking his head at me {wink}...

I even took a few minutes to sketch down a pillow design using the scraps - complete with quilting ideas!

Now I just need a few minutes of machine time to create!  Woohoo I can't wait!

No sewing today though ... It's off to work I go...  I normally work from home but I'm trekking to campus for some important meetings today...  (This is what pays the mortgage ;)

Thanks Deb Strain for the fantastic giveaway!

Have a great day all!
