Christmas in [almost] April

This past weekend I finished up a Christmas project I started last December.  Its progress was interrupted, joyfully, by the birth of my third daughter, but I just never got around to completing it until now.  And it turned out so much better than I expected.  I am going to make it into a pattern and use Erin Michaels's "Santa's Little Helper" fabric that I put on preorder already at Over the Rainbow.  I can't wait to get it!!!

I also started a new quilt for our bedroom.  I am making it with these fabrics:

And here is the first block I've finished:

Also, I have bought fabric SIX times in the past two weeks!!!!!!!!!!  So, when I got an email from the Fat Quarter Shop advertising 20% off all Kona solid orders, I thought my credit card would spontaneously combust!  Luckily, they don't have Kona in ash--I'd buy a whole bolt of it!  For a chance to win some fabric and not break the bank, Kaelin over at The Plaid Scottie is giving away some Michael Miller Ta Dots.
