Goodies! I have goodies!!!!

Last week was a super busy week, and though I wish I could say I stitched a lot, it's just not the way it went.... oh well! Yesterday was a good day though, several friends came to stitch with me and we had a great time! Nicole brought me a gift she knew I'd go nuts over - look!! First, she tied it with lovely red ribbon....
And she is too smart... she knew I was drooling on my keyboard looking at her post about her quilt shopping & apparently she had been thinking about me beforehand. I am a total fabric-a-holic & LOVE fabrics/fat quarters and she picked out some cute ones didn't she? I already have something picked out to use the one with the trees on & she agreed that it would be perfect... maybe I'll get to it soon & I can show you! :-) And if you don't have a "Purple Thang", they are great, they really do work! Thanks again Nicole, it was very sweet of you to think of me & I appreciate it very much!
Next up, when the mail came, and I saw the return address on the envelope, I KNEW I was in for a real treat! I'm in a Christmas Ornament Exchange Group & this time Marie P had my name (woooohoooo!) and lookie here.... first, the packaging (adorable!) yes, those are tiny Christmas lights!

And it's M Designs "Joy Tree" stitched over one & finished into a stunning ornament! I ADORE it!

And here is the back. Don't you love that fabric?
Thank you again Marie, it's GORGEOUS & I do love it! :-)
The gals yesterday did get me motivated to stitch a bit, which I'm going to get to very shortly. First I have to get my ornament packaged & ready to put in tomorrow's mail! :-)
I hope to have some finishes to show you by this time next week! :-)
Thanks for stopping by & Happy Stitching!

What's a purple thang...and do I need one? :) If so where do I get them?
LOVE your Marie P ornament and the fabric goodies that sweet Nicole got you are gorgeous!

yeah, what is a purple thang? For quilting? cross stitching?
I'm just curious.
Your ornament is so pretty and the backing is precious!

Missed stitching with y'all yesterday. Love the fabric and the ornament is cute.

Anxiously awaiting the answer to the purple thang question too.

Are you a quilter??? I have one of Lynn Graves "Purple Thangs" ~ quilters really like them.

Glad that you liked the ornament and thanks for your sweet words!
