Great stuff!

I woke up yesterday morning feeling absolutely awful!  After a visit to the doctor I can tell you I have strep throat.  I have only had it one other time that I can remember and strep is worse than just about anything.  Laying on the couch, eating popsicles is what I accomplished all day.  My children ate as many popsicles as I did because you can't eat a popsicle around a 2 year old without giving them one, and if one child has one then the others have to have one too!  While I was camped out on the couch there was a knock on the door and when I opened it there was a sweet package from the people at McCall's.  I couldn't wait to see what they sent the 20 finalists from the Design Star Challenge.  Here is what arrived!

 It is kind of hard to tell just how much stuff was in the box.  Lots of fabric, thread, scissors, batting, rotary cutter, a few gift certificates and a few other items.  It really made my day.  Even though I felt horrible it was a little better after dreaming of what I could make with all of my new stuff!

I couldn't have a better helper to search through everything.  After showing my kids what had arrived my oldest asked if they could pick something from the stash, she already has a fabric obsession.
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Uh OH I shouldn't have peeked. My Box isn't here yet...I'm glad you got it, hope you feel better soon. I drink warm Jell-O when my throat is sore.

  2. I've had that strep stuff....totally sucks. Sorry you're having to endure the pain. Awesome on the box...we're still waiting for ours out here in Washington ;-)

  3. Sorry!! It didn't even cross my mind that everyone wouldn't have theirs yet. Now I feel guilty, but just know they are awesome (at least I was thrilled to have it.)

  4. It's ok, I see some Purple in your stuff that I didn't get... It was still a surprise what type of fabrics we all got. By the time the UPS guy finally made it to my house I was even more excited!

  5. What an AWESOME stash!!!! Congrats!! :)
