Christmas in June - Oh, Yeah!

Christmas came early at my house - June no less - and it came with a Bang! Oh, Yeah! Friday my wonderful, lovely boss gave me a $50.00 Visa gift card as a thank you. I immediately thought of the fabric I would need for the Christmas QAL & Challenge (go read all about the QAL and give some serious thought to joining us).

Friday's mail brought the three Santa patterns I ordered for the Christmas QAL. I was so excited and planned to hit Quilting by the Bay when they opened Saturday - armed with my gift card and Santa(s). Things got even more exciting when I "remembered" Quilting by the Bay was celebrating 11 years with customer appreciation sales.

Look what came home with me this morning from Quilting by the Bay for a grand out-of-pocket expense of $25.00 ($99.00 of fabric, discounted by $24.00, less my $50.00 gift card = $25.00) Amazing! Awesome! I am very happy! And let me present my haul! ......
Two Yards for My Stash!
11 Fat Quarters!
Complimentary Drink Holder
The Santa(s) I intended to applique in cream, taupe, beige, gold became BLUE, SILVER,  AND WHITE! The fabric below caught my eye as soon as I walked in the quilt shop. I walked past several times but this fabric was calling my name. So Santa is getting an updated wardrobe ....
There is sparkling silver throughout these fabrics, which did not photograph well. The silver is Beautiful!
