Let the Cat out of the Bag!

There was a knock at the door 
and a package I see.
it said it was fragile...Oh what could it be?
It looks like it must have taken a tumble.
Nothing was broken, but things were a jumble!

As I opened the box it was hard to believe...
The beautiful fabrics that I did receive!
Batiks were abound in black, white and grey!
...and 5 yards of Whip Cream that just wanted to play!
There was rayon, beautiful rayon and a scarf in there too.
Stash builders and "Aurifil" thread!
What's a girl to do?
(first that is)
The treasures are plenty, but we are not just quite done...
They threw in some sunshine, just for the fun!
Then "Hobbs" went and spoiled us with their treasure trove...
But I alas, I found there was more gold!
This one I can't share...
cause it's hot off the press...
or Bali I should say, and it is their best.
Not available for sale just yet you see, 
so I have time to work on this project with glee!
You would think we are done, but there was one more box!
This one that came, was quite a shock!
It's nothing I ordered, oh what do I do?
Then I danced with joy, when I hear "Accuquilt" sent out a few!
There are 50 ambassadors this year, who all made this haul.
Monthly challenges, 2 big blog hops, our orders are tall.

Inspiration a plenty we promise we'll run.
So you can see the new fabrics and get in on the fun.
I really am speechless, all the treasures I see.
It's hard to believe, they are all just for me!

So many to thank, I don't know where to start.
Just know, you all have every piece of my heart.
We are kicking things off with a bang this year.
I will see you as soon as I get it in gear.
(Tomorrow that is)
A huge "humble" thanks to all our sponsors.
Your generosity is overwhelming and so appreciated!

til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'


  1. Looking forward to seeing all the wonderful projects these 2 boxes will inspire.

  2. Wow they sure have spoiled the ambassadors this time.

  3. Oh, I love the colors - I'm in love with the sunshine. I love yellow and I just cannot find a shade of yellow that looks great on the top of me. I do have a pair of yellow shorts but nothing that really looks great on the top half. Golden yellow like this might but the yellows I find in clothing washes me out! You are going to have fun, fun, fun! I am thrilled for you.

  4. Wow.....spoiled indeed. You will do just with everything I see there.

  5. Wow! Lucky lady from all I see
    And blessed beyond measure...
    Wish it were me!

  6. Great poem! So fun, and so glad I'm with you on this adventure.

  7. You always make me giggle. Love the rhyme and wish I could be this creative. It should be a super fun year!

  8. Oh Joan what fun you’ll have with this treasure trove of goodness. You will love the Accuquilt cutter. I have had mine for a couple of years now. It sure saves me time and pain (arthritic hands) and you will have so much to gain. I cut a queen size Hunter’s Star tonight after teaching at my Guild. It only took mean hour with my Accuquilt.

  9. That is an amazing pile of goodies. Lovely fabrics, especially the yellow and blue bundle.
    Looks like you are in for a lot of fun with the GO!
    I looks forward to seeing what you get up to.

  10. Oh my, what a bundle of quilty goodness arrived at your home!!! Simply gorgeous!!!

  11. AWESOME! Love the poetry, you are a very talented gal. Can't wait to see what you make. Let us know how you like the Accuquilt Go...

  12. Great post. I'm envious of the blue/yellow fabric.

  13. What yummy stuff....love it all!!

  14. Wholey Moley! What a great haul of batiks and more! Oh I am a bit jealous now because I was rejected as an ambassador! I remember they asked if I had a die cutting machine and I didn't. I thought perhaps that was one more reason I was not selected? But now I see they just have sent those to the people who didn't have one already. Dang! I wonder if I should bother to apply again this year because they didn't want me so what would change their minds if I apply for next year? I don't know what they are even looking for because I thought I would be a good choice for them. I have been blogging for a long time (11 years) and quilting for decades! Oh well it gives me more time to make what I want to make and not have to be committed to anyone else or to conform to what they want. I may give it a try again, but I guess they prefer to stick with the same ambassadors they had had for years than to take a chance on someone new? Perhaps they only had about 5 new spots available,(or something like that)? Well it is what it is. I have time to use up my own stash of fabrics now, so I better get sewing!

  15. So Doctor Seuss of you. :) Wow. Talk about creating good relations with their ambassadors! I can't wait to see what the challenges are this year.

  16. What wonderful surprises. Am looking forward to the many exquisite things you will make.

  18. Wonderful poem and looking forward to a wonderful year with you as an ambassador!

  19. Joan, you are an all-quilting, all-rhyming sensation! Love your post. And please, what collection are those 10" squares. They are incredible.


Thanks for stopping by today. Your comments really do make me day!
