Thankful Thursday Indeed!


Imagine my surprise when the UPS man delivered a good sized box to me this evening. I was frightened thinking 'Oh Lord, what did she buy and NOT tell me?'. Well, after seeing the return address I was relieved. But I MUST say my GOODNESS how thrilled I was to open this box & find so much batting!!! WH00T!

Now I know what you're thinking "What? Batting scraps? Has Stacy finally lost it?" Well, no. I was talking to my dear friend Lynn Douglass about my CatNipQuilts and how I was using my batting scraps but was starting to run low. So she just packed up a box & sent them to me! Isn't she the bomb? And can I tell you as I kept pulling wad after wad of (carefully folded I might add) batting out, in the bottom there was a breath taking SURPRISE!!! As if the batting wasn't enough!
Such a cute card AND some to die for new fabric!!! I am truly spoiled Lynn. Thank you so much but you are still on for a girls night, homemade tacos & some margaritas! Don't think I've forgotten!




Oh I'm so inspired; aren't they just yummy!

You can paint with that?

Just dropping in for a second *sshhhhh* I'm at work & posting this...
If you love awe inspiring illustration; incorportated with gorgeous words; wanna see something?

Check out Illustrator Jackie Morris' site today & see what she's painting with... *feathers! YA, no kidding!!!*

HERE

Amazing. I am lucky & have a few of her books; her work leaves me breathless & inspired (and many times my eyes leaking) in a way I can't quite articulate. You'll see. If you've a mind too check out her other blog about her ginger cats; written in their voices.

LOVELY HERE

I'll stop gushing & let you go.
