I can't help myself

As I was scrolling through some blogs the other day, I came across this:

As some may have noticed, I've had a renewed interest in embroidery lately. This project not only satisfies my interest but also gives me a nice decoration for Christmas.  The project started today.  Go here for more details.  I'm not officially joining in the project because I don't want the commitment but I do want to follow along on my own.  The first pattern, issued today, is a Santa with his pack.

Back awhile ago, I purchased some fat quarters that were batiks.  I love, love, love them but they can be pretty expensive (at least for my budget).  But at JoAnn's, with 50% off coupons, they're more reasonable.  This is what I bought:

Aren't they great?!

Hope you have a good day.
