Favorite Things Friday

Favourite Things Friday @ QIMP

Here we are!
Another round of Shay's Favourite Things Friday!

So here is something I've been holding back on.
I won a giveaway from my all time hero,
Monica Solorio-Snow

I won this fabulous jelly roll to add to my stash of
Happy Mochi Yum Yum.

If you have not checked out Monica's blog yet, you really should.
She will

I always tell her she's my hero.
I'm pretty sure she thinks I'm a psyco stalker,
but that's OK.
At least she knows how I feel.

I also took some 'me' time this week
and made a Valentine curtain for my kitchen window. will be very proud of me.
I didn't use a pattern and
it's lined with an eyelet trim.
YAY me!

We have this local shop
that is so incredibly reasonable regarding their prices.

The heart
was only $7.

The flower ball
was only $4.

The old glass heart
was only $6.

Can you believe it?

What an awesome week it has been!
And to top it off,
I get to spend the weekend with my sister
(she has my very own bedroom for me,
thank goodness....because she snores.)
and we are going to

Guess what my topic will be for next weeks
Favourite Things Friday? 

Love to all!!

Monica is hilarious. A visit to her blog is a guaranteed smile at the very least. Your little bundle of Happy Mochi Yum Yum is fabulous. Yay for you!

And I am proud of you! Good job.

I can't wait to hear about your sewing sisters weekend. Have a great time!

Your heart valance is lovely. And you made some great decorating purchases too. Enjoy your weekend with your sister.

Oh my goodness Cindy I just bought a kit that uses Monica's fabrics in it. It's darling and I cant wait to make it. How exciting to win something from the fabric designer herself !

Way to go on all that craftiness ...have you been possessed by crafting demons or something?

I love that old glass heart.

Have a ball with your sister!
