good things happen in threes

Have you ever heard that things happen in threes? It seems to be true in many cases, whether real or contrived - finding something else to complete the set...

This week, Wednesday specifically, I had 3 good things happen!
1. I won this awesome pincushion from Julie at Jaybird. She designs things for the Moda Bakeshop (get over there now if you haven't already!). This particular pincushion is made with Tula Pink's new Hushabye line that I was drooling over recently.


The pincushion is ENORMOUS! and I love it. So does my little 'helper'. I keep finding the pincushion with her toys though. I'm thinking I need to make some bean bags!

2. I got a tip on some half-price Sandi Henderson from the Fabric Shack and the order came in the mail the same day as the pincushion! They sent me a free package of machine quilting needles and a handy quilting chart reference card! They won me over!

3. My husband came home! Yes, Wednesday was a GOOD day!



Now that I don't have him to wait for anymore, I'm missing a little drama. So now I'm just waiting for these guys to ripen.

and these.

If I could just get my kids to not pick them until they are RED.

That is SO funny Amy! Yesterday L-man and I were going through Chik-fil-a's drive through because he wanted a peach shake and the truck in front of us was a chik-fil-a truck. When we placed our order, the total was $3.33 and when we got to the window, the attendant told us the owner had been in front of us and he comp'd our order! Nice.
Ok, so about that fabric, I didn't see the orange/creamy stuff, I missed it! Was it on the same page with the rest of the Sandi Henderson? Or maybe your photo of it is just way more appealing :)

I love shopping at fabric shack! My little hidden gem to find goodies - love your additions :) That cushion is huge! I'm surprised she's not sitting on it :P

My kids love to pick all the neighbors flowers! We've been working on that one. . .
