Awesome Monday!

Today was an awesome day! I took half a day off work and took a quilting class with my cousin. It was just a 3 hour class to learn how to do the actual quilting part. Me...i send everything to be long-armed, so now that i know a few techniques i will be practicing them so i can do some of my own stuff.

Here is some Christmas material i bought to make more stocking table runners, i just fell in love with it, it's so pretty! On another note ... the quilt shop we took the class at has a TON and i mean TON of Schnibbles patterns. I can't even tell you how many they had, but it was a boat-load! So now i know where i'll be getting my patterns from for A Year of Schnibbles Club. Here are the three patterns I purchased!

OH OH OH and here is something that just made my day!!! I WON A GIVE AWAY!!! MY VERY FIRST ONE!!!! Check out Jane's Blog ... Sew Create It! and look at the ADORABLE non-slip sewing machine mat with 3 pockets in the front that she made ... that is what i won!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH JANE!! Isn't that just the bestest gift ever! And here's where you can get the pattern to make your own.

I hope everyones Monday was as Great as mine! No sewing tonight, but hopefully tomorrow.
