Look what arrived in my mailbox today all the way from Canada!

This is what was inside from Lynn of UFO's, Stash and My Life. Go by and pay her a visit! This is the first giveaway and only giveaway I've won! See what was inside the envelope! A Jelly Roll of Moda's Maypole fabric.
Aren't the colors delicious!

More from the side views...

And another view from the side...

Such wonderful SPRING shades!
I was in my favorite haunt --Nancy's Calico Patch and purchased this book last week. I thought it would be pretty done up using this jelly roll. She has this line on the bolt...needless I"ll be going back and buying some of it for the borders, backing and such.
Thanks so VERY MUCH Lynn!!! I am beyond THRILLED!!!
Here is a view from my backdoor looking to the back corner of the lot...taken Monday morning.

Look who is moving all around the floor as I'm blogging---the five month old grandbaby while her older 2 & 3 year old sisters are napping. She started out lying on Mr. Froggy playing with the hanging frog/bug/fish the rolled over and started moving backwards.
Went backwards into the desk and chair.Once she got into sitting position for a few too excited and rolled backwards. She's now napping on Papa's chest.

Elaine, lucky you to win that lovely roll of strings or jelly roll. I can just image the lovely quilts you can make out of that book. Enjoy your giveaway!

You are so blessed - a beautiful granddaughter, fun mail and a lovely snow. If your snow was like ours, it was pretty watching it fall, fun on Monday to see the grandkids playing in it, and mostly gone by Tuesday. Today is supposed to be near 80!

The quilt you picked out is so pretty and is the perfect choice for your jelly roll. Looks like a fun one to make.
