Spreading Some Joy and Good Fortune

Hello, friends! It's been a snoozer on here lately and i am sorry for that. Lots of good stuff going on behind the scenes (despite the late nights and giant piles on my desk) and some new exciting announcements coming very soon!

It was such a beautiful day yesterday that i ate lunch outside in our garden, warmed by the early spring sunshine and the happiness of seeing color coming back into the landscape. I adore this time of year and looking around, i could not believe how quickly everything has begun to bloom. But then i started to feel that overwhelming gardener's urge to start pruning, digging and planting. Does this happen to you too? While i was moseying and poking around, i thought it'd be fun to share my little tour via Instagram. Are you familiar with this awesome app for your phone?  It's kind of like twitter only with real time pictures. You might want to check it out and then link up. It's also great because you can save your pictures as usual and share them elsewhere...like on your blog. So here's my lunchtime garden tour from y'day. Look at these springie beauties!
Uh, wait a minute...did you notice something unusual about some of those blossoms? They sure look a lot like fabric don't they? I didn't think you'd miss that and am thrilled to let you know that precuts of Joy, my new Christmas collection for Moda, are popping up in stores now! So to help spread the Joy and a little extra Good Fortune to you, i'm giving away all the items in that photo to 7 lucky winners! All you have to do is leave one comment describing something you are happy about/grateful for. I'll use random.org to pick the winners and will announce them this coming Sunday (after i plant our lettuce).
Good luck!

  149. Beautiful flowers! The past couple of days I have run a zillion and three errands. It has been really raining (of course!) and I am so very grateful for my garage door opener. It used to be such a pain to get out in the rain and open the door and pull the car in. So nice to be able to stay dry to get in and unload.
