My sweet sis!

Anybody remember this?


Our family has always loved the movie "White Christmas" and this song came to mind when I wrote the title for this post!

I have the bestest sister ever, and I just want you all to know that. Your sister may be wonderful, and awfully darn sweet, and gracious and loving and all that . . . but mine is still the bestest! (Grin)

Of course, that is what we are all supposed to think about our sisters, right? And some of us are blessed to have good friends that are just like sisters to us -- I have some of those, too, here in blogland. (Waving) I love y'all!

My sis just bowled me over the other day with a late birthday pressie! An awesome package of fabric goodness!



First, there was this gorgeous bag . . . oh, how I love reds, nowadays!



See all those delicious pocketys? Me loves pocketses! I can put patterns, needles, lots of stuff!



Haha! Can we say it all together?  "MORE POCKETS!"  I am in pocket heaven! Look at that cool piece in the bottom, to make it sturdy, and it will not droop!



I'm over-the-moon happy with all these red and white prints!

Look what else! My sis knows that I'm trying to design an original quilt with oranges . . . look at these goodies!


A Bella jelly roll, and some scrumptious fat quarters! (No excuse, now, I really have to start that orange quilt!)

Alright, now that I have you drooling over my haul, I'll sign off. (Wink)

Love,

  1. My sister and I would always have a show with that song and then did my girls and my sisters girl's. there are 6 girl cousins singing and dancing. But, I adore my sister but she really has no idea what to do with a needle! She is the one who could tell you anything you ever wanted to know about music and movies and is a trivia pro.
    So happy for you and you bag of pockets! On to your orange quilt!

  7. What a delightful present you are very lucky to have such a fabulous sister. I have two brothers and neither of them would ever think of fabrics for a present, chocolate is as far as they get.

  16. Yes sisters are just awesome! Your presents are just spectacular and it is wonderful that she gave you things so perfect. I'm betting that you'll find Padsworth and Dragon Drop inside those pockets before too long.

  17. Love your surprise present! It looks to like Sister used some orphan blocks for the interior pockets. I SEW love that idea!!!! Wish my sisters knew how to stitch.

  18. How thoughtful. Don't ever think we all have thoughtful sisters like this. You truly have a very thoughtful sister, who knows what brings you pleasure and creativity. This is such a special gift. I look forward to seeing what you create with it. Please give your 'sis a hug for me. And a hug to you too!
