The postman arrived and Happy New Year!!

I was a lucky winner in the bloghop that took place recently , actually won three things , the stocking that I previously showed and another stocking which I have yet to receive and then this cute little snowman wallhanging ,oh and I won some buttons which have not arrived as of yet either , it has been a lucky month for me ;-0
 Isn't he just the cutest , Lee of Lalas Lovelys created this cute snowman and I am delighted he will be spending the winter here with me. That is the great thing about snowmen they can stay around after Christmas .Thanks so much Lee , I really love him.
 You will notice a new icon on the left  , well I have made a committment to shop in my own fabric closet for this year , if you want to read all about it just click on the icon and it will take you to Jeanett's blog where she will explain how this works. Basically you use the fabric you own but can buy for backings and borders that kind of thing .Since I have just a little fabric ;-0 I am going to give this a shot , wish me luck , I know I will be tempted on more than one occasion but  it is worth trying . Some of that fabric will be used for the little houses , the icon showing that sweet little scrappy house , not sure how I will make out with that either but I do love scrappy and I do love houses so again it is worth a shot. No harm in trying right .
 I'd like to also take this opportunity to thank all my followers , I really appreciate each and everyone of you and especially love your comments and encouragement . I hope you all have a very Happy New Year and that 2012 the year of the dragon will be your best ever .
 Thanks as always for stopping by .
 hugs Sheila

  3. Happy New Year to you as well! I admire your commitment to shop from your closet...now that I know you are still allowed to buy backing and border, I may just investigate further! Your snowman is sweet...a lovely giveaway gift to receive.

  5. Cute snowman! I've actually been shopping my stash for the past year, and it's been wonderful to use some things up. It's hard not buying new fabric, but it's nice to be clearing some things out of my sewing corner! Happy New Year! :0)

  11. Happy New Year, Sheila!
    Does the clearing out of fabric include the totes full of scraps too? If so, it may take several years . . .

  12. What a wonderful idea to use your own stash, I wonder if swapping would be permissible?
    wishing you all the best for the New Year!
