I trust those of us celebrating Thanksgiving had something to be hugely thankful for this year. My heart is full, as well as a few other parts.
Now that all the dishes are cleaned and put away, leftovers are stacked in the fridge and my TV says everyone else is out shopping today, I think it's a perfect time to sit down with my blog friends and tell you how thankful I am. Proof? I want to have a giveaway. Sew Mama Sew is hosting a Give-Away on December 3 and I'm jumping in on the fun. Check it out here.
I am giving a set of four (4) fat quarters from my Flights of Fancy in the Ocean colorway and a set of 8 matching notecards. Between now and December 3rd @ 10:00 pm Eastern time, just leave a post about what project/gift you envision making with these Flights of Fancy fabrics. I will look for creativity and post a winner by 10:30 PM that eve. Keep in mind that these fabrics are hot off the press so you might have to do a bit of impressing. Seriously, I am so pleased to be a part of this Give-Away and just want to hear from everyone. Since I have many emails and requests outside the states, I welcome anyone outside the US to participate. Here's a quick shot of what can be yours very soon!
Before I head off to the fridge to pull out the leftovers, I want to thank everyone for the Tooth Fairy education. I absolutely love the silver dollar or unusual coin aspect. I have yet to share my own childhood, but suffice it to say; no tooth fairy, no Easter bunny and hardly a Santa in sight. I am truly curious. I think my own kids somehow worked the system, and I still don't know the rules. Whaat?

Speaking of the Tooth Fairy, what has happened to Thrift Shops? Not so thrifty where I live, but my friend Caroline over at JCaroline Creative flaunts her thrift bargains here (her $3 chair that had $1.40 in change under the cushion) or here ($15 Queen Anne sofa)... So yesterday afternoon I tried 2 different Goodwill stores nearby hoping for a great deal to maybe use with my new fabrics. I immediately spotted an armless chair that would have made Caroline drool. $60. Yup, I know. It was in good condition, but still! Instead I walked away with these 2 cups and saucers for $2.00 total. I needed them like a hole in the head (eww!) but I loved the pattern and didn't want to leave empty handed (or broke if I had bought that cute chair).
