SSCS and a Sale

This is the lovely gift I received from Laila in ChookyBlues Christmas swap.
I was very lucky to receive this lovely bag.

SSCS gift from Norway

I think it is all the more special because it has Norwegian on it.

There's just something about the word "SALE" that makes my heart beat faster.

Love the SALE fabrics. Beautiful (even without the word SALE in front of them )

The bags both given and received are lovely!

Love the fabrics you got on sale. Laila did you proud too. Sounds like the SSCS was a big success again this year.

Happy quilting,

That's what happens to me nearly every day!!! I start off so well and then my diet ends up all downhill from there :(
How long is the sale for??? Not that I need any more fabric. Although I have started sewing and it does bring out the urge to buy fabric ;-)
I love those bags - especially the red one - your sscs was very lucky - as were you :)

I, also, Love the bags you made? Is this a pattern you created or purchased? Details pretty please! Enjoyed the photos of your warm winter as it's FREEZING cold here in Nebraska USA. I needed to see some warmth and sunshine.
