Thoughtful Thursday

On Thursdays, I will post a few of things that I have been thinking about. This includes projects that I thinking of creating, thoughts about life and family and just general get-it-out-there-and-out-of-my-head ramblings.

I am....

 ...excited that I am posting again!!! 

.... super-duper excited about the Mystery Quilt being hosted by Meadow Mist Designs. I have to pick out four fabrics this month. So far I have two picked: Kona Cotton White (you can't go wrong!) and Pocketful of Daisies below. Unfortunately it's an awful photo and I can't link you back to it as I bought the final 2.5 yards at $4.30 a yard! Plus I bought a very sweet mini-charm pack!
Pocketful of Daisies Orchid Pavestones Yardage <br/>SKU# 2003-21
Bad photo I know but it's missing from the Fat Quarter Shop website since I bought the last bit!

Best part about this purchase is that it cost me less than $3! Yep! How, you ask? Easy! I still had the $15 gift card that I won from Sew Like My Mom in March of 2014!!! Yeah... never found anything I had to have. I am so glad I held onto it! This fabric is so pretty! I can't wait for it to get here.
** Secret: The five yards that I won at the same time? Yep, still sitting in my fabric shelves! **

... frightened that I am being "show cased" in week 1 of the Blog Hop for the 2015 New Quilt Bloggers! I wanted to "get it over with it" but I'm still scared! And yes I'm starting that post today!

.. grateful to my critique group for their great feedback! Thanks! It was great to look at everyone's blogs and seeing how different they were! I don't know if it was intentional but we were all very different in design and set up!

... excited to be part of the 2015 New Quilt Bloggers! I'm even more excited to be part of the New Bees group! My hive leader is Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs. (Plus she is the one hosting the Mystery Quilt Along!)

Thanks, Sarah at 123Qulits, for the pretty button!

Here's the list of participants in my group!

Of course there are so many more participating! Each of the four hosts have split the group up to make the blog hop quite a bit easier! There will be a total of four weeks in the blog hop!The other three hosts for the hop are:
Stephanie at Late Night Quilter
Terri Ann at Childlike Fascination
Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl

... grateful that my husband supports me in this hobby of mine! He had to go out of town yesterday for a doctor's appointment and made a special trip to a fabric store JUST to buy me four yards of Kona Cotton White! Isn't he the best!?!?!

Hope you are all having a wonderful day!!!
