Light at the End of the Tunnel

I can't believe its been a whole month since I blogged! Well, the quilt made it off in time for the photo shoot and is now on its way to Quilt Market. If any of you are going, it'll be hanging up in the Lecien booth.

I came home a couple of weeks ago to a package on my doorstep. Inside was a lovely note from Joy that literally brought me to tears. She had won a giveaway on my blog a few months ago, and after reading about my family getting robbed, she decided to send me and my babies a little giftie. She sent along a raggedy Ann doll (in the picture above), and two gorgeous lambs for Liberty and Wyatt. There isn't a picture of them because I literally cannot pry them away from them, and they are both asleep clutching them. But you can see a picture at the bottom of this post. Wyatt's kept the name Lambington, and Liberty named hers Joy. It was such an unexpected surprise that I still get all emotional thinking about it! Bug hugs to you Joy! You are such a wonderful, caring person!

I also received my lovely doll quilt in the mail from Jessica! I just love the munki munki prints and the awesome pebble quilting! This is going up on the studio wall!

And last but not least, one more addition to my Blythe family: a Bow Wow Trad (my dream doll), tentatively named Sabrina.

I've been busy sketching away on some BIG projects, but I can't show them for quite some time. Sorry for the tease! But, my project that is being published in More Fast and Fabulous (American Patchwork and Quilting) comes out this week! Woohoo! I will be having a giveaway to celebrate! I saved the fabrics that I used in the project, and I will be giving away as many kits as I can scrounge out of the stash!

Happy Stitching!

Oh Jennifer, that is so sweet what Joy did. I would have been crying too. We meet the sweetest people in blog land.

Joy said...

I really am chuffed to bits that you all like your gifties Jennifer - I really enjoyed making them for you :o)!!
I have to say .... your stash looks FABULOUS!!!! Sooo neat and tidy. That does it ... I'm just going to have to clean up my lot now LOL.
Big Hugs,

How do I win in your give-away? You know I love free stuff!... ;) The doll quilt is much prettier in person, as is all the stuff. And I think Sabrina is a fine name for your latest family addition.
