Oh.... A surprise!

I just love surprises! Even if I set them up myself! lol You know what one of the fun parts of Internet shopping is? Getting packages in the mail. Woooo, hoooo I love getting mail!

I placed this order last week at Joined at the Hip. I wanted the star hanger for my Welcome quilt. Of course, I just couldn't order one thing. So I started looking for patterns and found two (2) that I had to have. If you recall, I want to make wall hangings for the brick wall in my kitchen that would depict the different seasons and holidays. Well, I found Spring and an every day one "The Witch is in". I just love that one. I will have to hang my broom right next to it!

The top pattern was a gift from Joined at the Hip. I think that was so kind of them to include a free pattern with my order. It's a wool applique pattern.

This morning I went to the post office to put a surprise in the mail. I had noticed that my stash of dark chocolate was now non existent. That can't be, not in my sewing room! I need my energy, I need my motivation, I NEED MY CHOCOLATE! So I stopped at the drug store and purchase a little treat for myself. Gosh they are good! Of course I hear that across our huge pond is the worlds best chocolates. Until I get a chance to visit and relish in such pleasures, I will just have to settle for Lindt extra dark!

Off to get some quilting done! I'm presently working on a wall hanging and I can't wait to finish it! Oh, I feel weak, time for a chocolate!

Happy quilting!

Chocolate can be as important to quilting as needle and thread *s*

You know, I firmly believe chocolate fixes everything! :-)

I ALMOST bought the umbrella/spring pattern on my mini shop hop, but settled on the two patterns I DID get instead. Okay, so I'm guessing you're really into witches--of course, I already know you have the broom and the cat. I really must show you the applique pattern I bought last October when I was in Utah visiting a friend--bet you'll love it. It's by a Utah designer and I haven't found it anywhere else. I'll tell you what--send me a ton of chocolate and I'll send you the pattern. Of course, I'm sure you'll want to see it first! LOL!

The patterns are great. I love that hanger! And as for the chocolate, I'm 100% in agreement! Must have chocolate!!!!!

Lindor Truffles - yummy!

I just received my star hangar (3 of them) and a couple of patterns from JATH as well! 2 of them are for the hangars "Summers Glory - July) and "Good Tidings" - December!

I really like that hanger - wouldn't it look good with a cowboy quilt on it - and in my house *grin*

I need to check out these patterns, the ones you have purchased are wonderful...oh,yeah; gotta have my chocolate too! (I'm a little fuzzy on this though, you mail the Lindt to yourself?)

As someone who lives across 'the pond', you have no idea what you are missing where chocolate is concerned.

YUP, fun to get your goodies in the mail! (I love ebay!) and the lindt extra dark is THE best. You obviously have excellent taste.

I love the patterns you got, and the hanger is really nice. Chocolate is a must- I totally agree with you on that :) Have a great day!

Cynthia said...

very nice patterns. I also keep chocolate in my sewing room for when i'm working down there. But i've just noticed the jar is empty so i'll need to stock up soon.

HOw does 86% cacao sound? Want some?

DH and DD are chocolate freaks and it is always at the top of the shopping list.
