The First Block of the Month

I don't know how Robin didn't do it but Michelle and I both caved and joined The Fat Quarter Shop's Thimbleberries Block of the Month Club for 2009.... My addiction to Thimbleberries fabric and books has been going on for years and sometimes I wonder if I'll put myself in the poor house trying to keep up with them.
My 2009 promise to myself is to finish each month's kit within 5 days of receiving it. No falling behind and no procrastinating!!! So, on the left is a picture of what the finished product will look like and below on the right are my month 1 blocks.

I also wanted to thank Debi and all the people that entered my Whirl into Winter Giveaway Contest. I was overwhelmed with 190 entrants....I'm sorry I couldn't respond to each and every one of you but I will tell you, I did try and look at all your blogs and I did enter quite a few of your contests.
I won 2, yes folks, 2 prizes. When they arrive I will show you what I got and tell you which blogs I won on. I am so excited knowing packies will be arriving in my mailbox soon.....
Hope you are all having a nice weekend....we're freezing our butts off here in 21 degree New Jersey!!!
