Wild and Wonderful Week

I just love weeks like this, when everything is coming up roses!

It started with being a guest blogger at Tamarini's...
You can find that post HERE if you missed it. I got a little silly for this post. I just don't know what got into me!
:-)
Then I got to show off my latest pattern testing project from Amy at

Which lead up to this...


A ring of the doorbell, and a suspicious package on my porch!
Suspicious, because I had heard thru the grapevine that my fellow Island Batik Ambassadors were starting to receive boxes as well!


I popped open this box and what did I see?


This spool of thread looking up at me.
It was like a message from above!!!!!

Between "Fantastico" and "Awesome",
I don't think there are any words I can better use to describe my week.


When the last flap was opened, I shouted with GLEE!
Holy smokes, just look at whats in here for me!


That "Island Batik" sure knows how to spoil a girl.
With all these goodies, it looks like they have big plans for us this year too. We have lots of new ambassadors...I consider myself very lucky to be among them. 
A big thanks to not only "Island Batik", but "Aurifil" and "Superior" threads.
This is going to be one "Fantastico Awesome" year!


But the week got even better at quilt club...

I always feel the love at quilt club, but this week...
Rocky, the 65 pound lap dog decided to make things just a little more special.
He is just so darn cute, and I'm a little jealous of his hair, doggone it!
LOL!!
Now, I'm off to work on my first Island Batik project...
"Galentines" Day.
It's a real thing!
;-)

Till next time...
Keep on Stitchin'
