Thankful For Generous Souls

OMG!!! Look what came in the mail today. I almost didn't open it. I thought about wrapping it up and putting it under the tree. But, I broke weak.

It expanded into this lovely collection (Poetry for Moda) of prints, dots, and solids, fat quarters and yardage, pale buttery yellow, the nicest green, teal, coral, and dusty pink. Oh my goodness! From Kelly's photo on her giveaway post I was thinking maybe a couple dozen fat quarters, but this! This just might be enough to make a couple of quilts just perfect for two very special little girls. Do you think I can get two quilts out of this bundle??? They are going to be thrilled. I know I am thrilled.

I am beyond thrilled. I'm touched, warmed to the very tip of my toes by the generosity and kindness of someone who doesn't even know me although I feel I know her a little bit after spending so much time reading through her blog, which I somehow stumbled across a couple weeks ago.  She had a fun Christmas giveaway and I'm one of the very fortunate recipients.  And, to think, I almost didn't participate. Why wouldn't I participate? Because I didn't feel like sharing anything of myself. "It's Christmastime," I told myself. "That's a lousy spirit. What are you afraid of? Just leave a comment." But, a comment isn't just a comment to me. It's a little bit about me, a little glimpse of me. I'm so glad I did. Not because of this awesome box that arrived today, but because it was fun and I really needed that little bit of fun. Thank you, Kelly. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to blog and for sharing so generously with us. I truly appreciate it.

Now, what about patterns? what would be suitable for these fabrics? I have no idea. Any suggestions, anyone?  I just know what I like. Guess I will go look through my Pins and see if I can come up with some ideas, after Christmas, like in January when the snow is a couple feet deep and temps are so low you can't leave the house.  Oh. My. Gosh. I have fabric to make a big quilt (or two)!!! (just looked at table again)

 Yup, it's still there. It's for real. : ) Thanks again, Kelly. A very merry and joyful Christmas season to all.
