On Pins & Needles

 I had one of those wonderful opportunities come my way!

I have been on pins and needles throughout the whole journey...
now, I know what you are thinking, it's the holiday's,
 maybe a trip to Paris? Or
a wonderful old Aunt left me a Chateau in her will?

Well, no, but the next best exciting thing for this homebody
was to be a special worker bee for the Fat Quarter Shop!
I got to play with a new line of fabric... that will be released in
March. It's a wonderful group by French General! Ahggg! can you stand it!
I love French General! I was so excited...
but, having been a bartender
and... having been a Catholic...
I have taken certain vows of silence...
and especially because Kim made me promise too keep it  a secret, I had to play quietly.

But I just got the word... about 10 minutes ago, that I can spill the beans!

So here you are.
It's called Parisian Romance.
The pattern is by Monique of Open Gate.
You know Monica, Carrie's friend.
 The one with the wonderful rulers (Fit to be Geese) that make flying geese a breeze.
This is the picture I took before slipping it in the mail.

This is the picture that is on Fat Quarter Shop's web site RIGHT NOW!
Happy dance!
