Hey Everyone!!!

I can’t wait…Hopefully you will see a fabric or two that you will need to add to your personal collection…But in the meantime while I wait for Flower Garden Gatherings to arrive I am working on designs for our state’s shop hop fabric line for Wisconsin…I know probably not that thilling if you have nothing to do with Wisconsin…but it is REALLY exciting for us…in lots of ways.Moda Blockheads 2 Quilt Along Project: Block 12 featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean Then my designer yardage for my Quilt Market line has come in and we are frantically starching and plotting all the quilts…here is a peek at that line…which we will have a book coming out with the same name…Star & Stripe Gatherings…..the book will include 10 quilts and a bunch of other things like pillows, wool mats, punchneedle and so on…Moda Blockheads 2 Quilt Along Project: Block 12 featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean

  1. Oh sooo pretty! You make the prettiest babies and by that I mean fabric, and they all grow up to be fabulous quilts!
    Love your Blog.

  2. Your next line of fabrics look like they will be perfect for quilts of valor. I plan on making a few of those in the future.

  3. Congratulations on grandson #2 Lisa and hope hubby is doing well after all he has been through. Your Twilight Garden is just beautiful…you are so talented! We met in Maine, I took one of your classes and enjoyed it very much. Thanks for the giveaway.

  4. Lisa Twilight Garden is stunning! What a tease with those charm squares!!! I want to see them all. Loving the new line and everything you do!!! Inspiration overload!

  5. Hi from NY. I love your block and am anxious to get back to piecing Blockheads 2. I am a little behind but will catch up. Summer is fast coming to an end which is sad, but then I can have some more quilting time.

  6. So glad all is well with your family! You’ve had quite a year! Love this block! It reminds me of your winter star, which is my husband’s favorite!

  7. Excitement all around. Baby boy #2 on the way. A new red, white & blue line on the way. Looking forward to baby pics & looking forward to using the new R-W-B fabrics. Thanks for the give away.

  8. Just saw the link to Flower Garden Gatherings, LOL. Awesome! I’m working on that little Jacob’s Ladder quilt I bought as a kit at your store the last time I was there. Love those mini’s. I’m from the UP of Michigan where it’s starting to feel like fall. If it gets too hot down there come on up!

  9. I’ve been following you for sometime now, though I don’t always comment. Love your fabric and patterns!

  10. Everytime I see your newest fabric line, I think it is my favorite. Now the Stars and Stripes are going to be my new favorite. Can’t wait to see the book that goes with. I live in Green Bay, so the Wisconsin Shop Hop fabric will be a treat too. Thanks for all you do for us quilters.

  11. Love the block!!! I am behind as well, very behind, but planning to play a lot of catch up starting this weekend!! Hope all is well with the family and I love the new line!

  12. Your new line looks wonderful, Lisa! And I LOVE the greys, blacks, and creams you’re using for your Blockhead 2 quilt. You always inspire us to make better and smaller blocks! 🙂

  13. I too have a grandson named Jace. Love the Flower Garden Gatherings, as well as all of your other fabrics.

  14. Thanks for the continued inspiration! I live in San Antonio, Texas so I only get a chance to see you and your family at the Houston Quilt Festival. Can’t wait until November!

  15. Lisa, you blow me away! I have trouble even READING about all you do and get done! Do you find more than 24 hours in a day? Your new fabricline is GORGEOUS! I also am a SBOW Twilight member and was thrilled to see the center. Breathless in the NW!

  16. I’m really enjoying the Block Heads–1 and 2! Your blocks are challenging, but that is how we learn! Congratulations on the new addition, will be twice the fun!

  17. Lisa, I love your new line of fabric, it’s beautiful. Can’t wait to purchase.
    I’m so happy for you. Little Man will always be number one, but you will
    love number two as much. Thank you Lisa for all that you do. Happiness and
    best wishes.

  18. I love everything you do…I have been a follower of your Summer BOWs for a few years now – I am far behind on completing any of them, but I retire in 15 months…and then I can devote some serious time to them. I love the details in all your patterns and am always looking forward to what you come up with next. Thank you for sharing your talents with us!

  19. Congrats on the new grandchild! Grew up in Kenosha, Wisconsin but moved to Ontario, Canada as a young woman and never left!

  20. I love reading your blogs . I have learned a lot from you! I am working on Moon Garden and love it. I love all your postings with Jace . Grandkids are the best ! Treasure those moments.

  21. You must be the busiest person on earth with all that you do. Congrats on the new grandchild on the way. I can’t imagine how you’d react when a girl comes along. Love your new fabric line. Your talent is amazing and thank you for share it with the world.

  22. OOH, love the new line of fabric and can’t wait for the new book. I have 2 grandsons and they are the best!!!

  23. Lisa, I have been subscribed for quite some time and I am in awe of all you manage to get finished! I feel such a strong pull from your fabrics as they are the colors and style I really love to see in quilts.I can hardly wait to get some of the new line in my stash! Best wishes for you and your (growing) family and what a GREAT Christmas present. Hope you are on the other side of Nick’s troubles and he continues to be ok.

  24. LOVE LOVE LOVE your patterns, fabric, blogs, videos, Facebook groups, and sew alongs! I can not get enough! You have also inspired me to give appliqué a try! Looking forward to seeing you at the Houston Quilt show! Maybe I will get to WI and visit your shop! Hope so!!

  25. Wow! Love the next fabric line. They’ll look great a quilt of valor. Will need to watch impatiently at my favorite quilt shop in Indianapolis for them to arrive:)

  26. Hi! I’m in central Illinois, about 30 miles from what they call the center of U.S. I’m working on that lovely Twilight Garden, they are all prepped but only #1 is finished. I think I’ll start the center as soon as the kit arrives. Grandkids are the best, I also have 2 grandsons.

  27. I signed up to follow your site. I love your Block Head block. Your blocks are so sharp and crisp. I’m from MO. Thanks for sharing.

  28. Love your fabric lines! I struggle with all of the small pieces but “done” is better than perfect. I’m getting a lot of practice. Thanks for the challenge! Also, as an ex-Wisconsinite I will have to have some of the 2019 Shop Hop fabric that you are designing. Planning my summer trip early!

  29. I tried to sign up to get your posts but it says you are already signed up. I was signed up and looked forward to receiving them but they suddenly stopped and I can’t seem to get them back. Probably been more than a year now. I hate to miss anything from you, love what you do, thanks for sharing your talent with the world! Maybe you could have someone look into why I don’t get your blogs anymore?

  30. Hi Lisa! I’m doing BH 2 with the same fabrics that you’re using and I LOVE it! Also from Wisconsin and looking forward to your Shop Hop fabs coming out. Got a sneak peak on the WI Shop Hop facebook page and they’re beautiful. Thanks for all you do . . .

  45. So pretty and I love your colour choice. I keep looking at the Block heads blocks that pop into my mailbox each week and then look at my “need to finish” pile …but your block has got me and well….the “need to finish” pile can wait a day. I need to make this block lol.

  46. These fabrics are beautiful! Thanks for introducing me to them! I used to live in Hudson, WI, so I understand your WI excitement! I live in Mooresville, NC–not far from Charlotte!

  60. Love the colors of the Oct line….. and then the red white and blue caught my eye as well. Where to find these lines in the metroplex? So many shops have cut back on inventory. I guess it is time to go get some starch……. count me in on the charm packs please.

    My husband, Jim, is retired military and a member of a veterans group here in Southeast Texas, that does military funerals. It is their priviledge to do nearly 300 funerals a year honoring their fellow veterans.
    Our church’s Ladies Aid group makes honor quilts for our members who are veterans. Your new fabric line will be ideal for them. I can’t wait umtil we can get our hands on some!
    Thank you for your designs and input.

  115. Hello from the heart of Texas where we are still in our long streak of 100+ degrees every day. So one stays inside and does more quilting! I’ve been following your blog since before BH 1, and expect now that your blocks will have a wee bit more challenge to them which I appreciate. I have 5 grandsons with another to arrive in January (we have 4 children). They are lots of fun. Thanks for helping us improve our stash with your fabric lines and keeping us on our toes with your helpful hints!

  116. I love your blog, love the current projects and the peek at the new projects coming up, and as always your fabric lines are gorgeous and some if not all will end up in my collection too. I want your clothes pins they are adorable, are they available for purchase?

  117. Many blessings to you for all that you do!!! Thanks for the sneak peak on SBOW…I joined because my hubby asked me to make it to remind us our time in New England as kids and teens…he was Rhode Island and I was Massachusetts. We now are in West Tennessee and I m currently with my brand new grandbaby many congrats to you and yours!!!! Thanks for inspiring me to work with wool in a different medium.

  127. Love the new line, can’t wait to see it in the California store. Working on the Moon Garden BOM, loving it..Love all the videos and helpful hints. You will so enjoy your second grandchild – it just gets better and better. Thank you for all the fun things you post on your blog.

  128. Hi! I am from PA and I just wanted to say thank you for doing what you do. You inspire so many of us! Love all of your fabric lines, and the new one looks fabulous! Thank you!

  129. Flower Garden Gatherings is fabulous!! That is definitely a half yard bundle purchase. Congrats on the next grandchild, being a grandparent is the best reward we can ever receive after raising our children. I’m enjoying Moda Blockheads 2, loving the 6 1/2″ blocks. Hope to see you again at Grand Hotel Needlearts Seminars in the future, you taught me to starch my fabric before cutting and I have had great success with piecing with that little tip. Thanks!

  130. Love your fabric, can’t wait to see the new line. Thanks for all you do for the quilting world, I appreciate it!!! Congratulations on grandchild #2, they are a blessing!

  131. Lisa, I love your designs and can’t wait for the new line to come out! Thank you for sharing your experience and advice with all of us. I’ve learned so much from you. Thank you!

  132. Hi! So many great things coming up! I’m enjoying the SBOW “My Fussy Cut Fantasy” as well as the “Moon Garden “ BOM! Keep up the good work! Thanks for being an inspiration.

  133. I am addicted to your SBOWs. This is only my second year and keeping current is a real challenge. I just completed the 200th block and only two weeks left. I haven’t done any wool work yet so I give the freebies to a dear friend who loves them. Can’t wait for your new backgrounds to come out as well as the patriotic prints – gorgeous. I love scrappy quilts and have collected all the charm packs you have on your site so far. I hope to see more in the future.

  134. Hi Lisa. Congrats on grand baby #2! I love checking your blog and seeing all the fun things you do with “little man”.
    Can’t wait to see the new line.
    😊 Carol.

  135. Super incredible, as usual !! Lovely addition to the BH2 group. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity 🙂

  136. Hi from Minnesota ~ ohhhh your header with the rulers + fabric just MADE my day! 🙂 Can’t wait for your new collection to be available!

  137. I love your block this week!
    Not to make anyone “jellie” as my kids would say but I’m going to San Diego next week and talked my husband into a trip to PG in CA, so excited!!!

  138. Love love love your new line of fabrics coming out!!! Will be anxiously awaiting their arrival! Congratulations on grandbaby coming soon too! They are such a blessing 🙂

  139. Love your block and fabrics. Enjoy this beautiful day here in Wisconsin. I hope to see you at Quilt Expo in Madison this September. 🐝

  140. Hello, Lisa

    Love the block and your fabric lines. Wish the fabric wasn’t so hard to get up here in British Columbia, Canada

  141. Congratulations on your new grandchild. I love your fabrics and patterns.
    I’ve tried subscribing to your blog, but my computer doesn’t allow WordPress and I don’t know how to change it.

  142. Great block! You challenge our quilting skills. Love your new line. I’m from Marietta, GA. Southerner love color!

  143. Love seeing all the new blocks. Your new line is fabulous–already have one picked out for borders I need to finish a patriotic quilt. Thanks for all you do.
    I’m from Emporia, Kansas

  144. I love hearing from you and all that is going on in your world. Love your fabrics and patterns (so much so that I have realized I have three – yes three – star penny pinkeep kits!! Discovered this while reorganizing my stash of kits!!!)

  145. So excited, traveling from South Carolina up to visit Primitive Gathering in a week. Thanks for being a true Wisconsinite!

  146. Hi from Illinois! I’m loving your blocks and i am super happy to have purchased your fabric kit for this year’s Blockheads – the colors are simply gorgeous! Can’t wait to see what you have planned next!

  147. I love seeing up your blocks. I will be traveling to see new grandson over Labor Day. This makes #2 for me,too. Can’t wait to see your new fabric.

  148. I love the previews of your new fabric & I can’t wait to see the book to! I’m currently using the Liberty Gatherings fabric for my Blockheads II blocks. Congrats on the upcoming grandbaby – do you know if it’s a girl or boy?

  149. Hi! My name is Tami and I am from NY. I love hand stitching and do a lot of work with wool and always enjoy Primitive Gathering patterns. I am starting to make quilts and use my sewing machine more. I’m still a beginner at that though. Thank you for the opportunity to win some of your beautiful fabric 🙂

  150. Love BlockHeads!! Introduces me to new designers, and colorways. I am from the Sierra foothills in California, and I am a lurker! I am swamped with other projects. 🙂

  151. I was new to quilting last year and learned sooo much from those 6″ blocks in Blockheads #1. Still working on the setting of that quilt. I have “cut off some points”, but guess what; “I don’t care”….I think it will be beautiful! Working on BH #2 and improving each week with every new block. Not nearly as many points cut off LOL and I’m enjoying the challenge. I enjoy reading your blog. Thank you for sharing so much with us. Best wishes to your family from Thompson, Ohio

  152. Thanks for the hint about using starch! I really like the look of this block…now to get my ufo done so I can get started!

  153. Lovely block. I was wondering if you had changed a setting as it comes up as picture rather just link to your blog on my blog cutting out some of my post. Is there some way I can correct this or do you need to do it from your blogger! I usually have to delete when happen before but don`t want to do this to your lovely blog as enjoy visiting with you.
    Thanks and happy stitching.

  154. I’m almost finished a queen size bed quilt made out of Snowmen Gathering 1 and 2!! I am soooo ready to try a mini quilt (that isn’t so blue….shhhh!) for a change of pace and Flower Garden Gathering charm packs would be a breath of fresh air! Really Lisa, thanks for designing such sweet snowmen!

  155. Just visited Primitive Gathering booth at AQS show in Grand Rapids. Purchases included Valdani thread, needles (including embellishment needles) wool and the new wool ironing mat. Loved the booth. Lisa you need to come and teach a class at AQS in Grand Rapids. Please come.

  156. Looking forward to the release of you new fabric line. Also love the block – am also behind a bit with piecing them. Thanks for all you do.

  157. Congrats on the new grandson coming. I love your block and the 6″ looks great to me. I love small, too. I am retired, from Nashville,TN but now living in the mountains of central Mexico. Your new line looks beautiful. Thanks so much for all of your hard work!

  158. LOVE this weeks block! Little is always the cutest! Just want to say THANKS for the inspiration you give us, as well as all the knowledge you share! Can’t wait for the new lines to come out and Congrats on grandbaby #2!

  159. I look forward to ALL of your blog post and read them over and over. You are such a talented designer. I worry about you because I just don’t know HOW you get so much accomplished and still have time to SLEEP! Tell me your secret! The new lines of fabric are beautiful just like EVERYTHING at Primitive Gatherings.

  160. I love your new fabric lines. I have been a fan for many years and continue to participate in your programs. I love the Moon Garden and am enjoying the challenge to complete each monthly block.

    1. I previously emailed that i was getting multiples of Lisa’s blog….but now looking more closely, I realize I’m getting emails back from everyone who comments on Lisa’s blog. I need to change my preferences to NOT see all these as email messages.

  161. Love your newest fabric line – actually love all PG fabrics! Congratulations on the future Little Man 2 !!

  162. Love your Jace’s block – the colors are just perfect!
    Your new fabric line is beautiful – I look forward to it being available.

  163. Can’t wait till your new fabric comes out! I’m already dreaming of what I can make with it.

  164. Love the little half square triangles to add a punch to a basic star. I also know that starching the fabric is the key!

    1. Why is this email repeatedly showing up in my inbox? today I had over 50 of this same email….and now, tonight, it’s back with multiples again? Any idea? This is the first time this has happened.

  165. love jace star and congratulations on new line of fabric but best of all on being a GRANDMA again!

  166. Hi, am looking forward to the new line in October. I live in NW WI but grew up in Appleton & lived in Menasha until 5th grade. In fact, I took dance lessons down the street from your shop (like 65 years ago)! One more thing – we have spent part of our winters on Cape San Blas – love it.

  167. Lisa, I love reading your blog and always look forward to it. I had the awesome opportunity to meet you for a few minutes at your booth last year in Houston. Please keep designing, sewing and blogging.

  168. Love your style! I am participating in the Twilight Garden SBOW- it is so beautiful! Thank you for the chance to win the charm packs- they look like they are wonderful fabrics!

  169. I love your little block. We all need to challenge our sewing skills now and then. Thanks for the give away.

  170. Thank you for having a give away. The fabrics are really nice! Congratulations on another grand coming soon!!

  171. Thanks for the block. I am still deciding on fabric but it looks like it will be a challenge!

  172. I have been excited for the new line of fabric to arrive in quilt shops and now there is another line to anticipate. Can’t decide which is my favorite! Keep up the good work, you are appreciated.

  173. Just joined your blog. I’ve taken a wool appliqué class from you at an annual Minnesota Quilters Show several years ago. I enjoy it but quikting is my passion. Love your patterns.
    I’m a MiMi as well and it’s the greatest gig ever!
    Eagan, MN

  174. I love reading about all you’re doing. Boy, you have a lot of energy. Thanks for having a give away. I don’t enjoy the cutting out part of quilting, so I am in love with precuts,

  175. I have been following you for awhile and don’t know how you do all that you do! I love your fabrics and can’t wait to see the new collection…love the colors!

  176. I love this new line that you have coming up: gorgeous colors!!! I’m from Healdsburg, Ca, 60 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge, and have had too much of large fires in the last year. The Tubbs fire last fall was only 15 miles away, and now the Mendocino Complex fire has clouded our skies for the last week or so and made us have to take our allergy meds because of the smoke in the air. But I’m blessed that our home has always been safe, though we did pack up our irreplaceable things last fall, just in case we had to evacuate. Love your Moon Garden quilt!!! I’m still working on the SBOW from 2 years ago!! 🙂

  177. Your new line is beautiful. Next year- how about an Autumn Gatherings line??
    Little turkeys, acorns, leaves ( and remake those little pumpkins ). That pumpkin fabric is one of my favorites !! I backed a quilt with that fabric.

  178. Love all you do. Love your fabrics and quilt designs. Keep up the great work. It is an inspiration to all of us. I love in MA.

  179. I’m pretty new to quilting and loving it or obsessing iover it when I was searching for some gray, white and black prints for my next project when you started posting your blocks….they are perfect! I’m still working on the right combination but love what you are doing. I am also drawn to the primitive fabrics ( my husband likes the look too and that helps a lot 🙂 I look forward to buying so of your prints….your new line looks fantastic and I like your other lines. Thanks for your inspiration and for posting your hard work.
    Your grandson is a cutie too…couldn’t ask for a greater joy and to have a second coming is exciting!!

  180. Your Twilight Garden wool appliqué is a stunner. But I know to expect that from you I love everything you do!

  181. Star n stripes gatherings looks awsome; can’t wait to feel it!! I will b a new (1st) Grammy n October 😊 We are over the moon with excitement. Continued prayers for your husband n family.

  182. Looking forward to your new line of fabric. I love the colors and can’t wait to sew something with them.

  183. Loving what you did with the new fabric line, the quilts are gorgeous. Enjoy all the info and patterns on your blog. Thanks for sharing.

  184. Anxiously awaiting your next line. Love, Love, Love all the “gatherings”. The colors are marvelous! and the quilts fabulous! Enjoy looking at all your pics. You bring us into your life. Wonderful.

  185. As always…you rock the blocks and quilts too! Love your wooly patterns too! Keep them coming!

  186. Hi Lisa, I’ve been following you for many years, and just love your style and your fabric lines. Looking forward to your next line and everything you do. Loving Moon Garden and Twilight Garden is just strumming. Hope Nick is doing well and congratulations on LM2.

  187. Love everything you do! Can’t wait for the next line of fabric to come out. Love reading and seeing pics of little man and what’s going in your life.

  188. I just love your new fabric line. I’ve been drooling over it every time I open your blog. I’d love to win the charm packs so I could see the colors in person. I have a large quilt in mind but hate to wait until I come to your shop in November to see the fabrics in person. This would be a win win for me. You accomplish so much in a day. I need a nap just reading this.LOL!

  189. Always enjoy reading what you are up to -makes me tired!! Love all your designs. Like the suggestion of other commenter – a fall/autumn gathering.

  190. Hi Lisa,

    Thank you so much for the fantastic “Stitch” sewing machine scissor keeper invention you gave us at Quiltstock. I tried to add a photo of it in action as I quilt my Opening Day quilt — made with Litte Gatherings 😊—so others could see it, but wasn’t able to. Maybe you can? It is so handy I know others will love it too. It is too clever to keep a secret.

    Mary Ellen

  191. It is because of you that I have become a “starcher” of fabrics. After making all the blocks from the first series, I am pleased at how precise my piecing has become. Thank you, Lisa!

  192. Hello, Lisa! I first visited your shop in the late 1980s and fell in love! Since then I’ve delighted in your success (lots and lots of hard work!) It’s been amazing to follow you on instagram and via your blog. And to visit your always humming booth at quilt shows. Now I’m a resident of the great state of Wisconsin and was over the moon to hear that you were going to design our state wide shop hop fabrics for 2019. Can’t wait to see them. Thanks for everything.

  193. I am not new. But thanks for the chance to win. I like your start block very much. How exciting you have another grandson on the way. I am expecting my third baby in the middle of September so we are anticipating that soon. However, I do not have lots of time to sew right now, but I do manage to stitch a few things here and there.

  194. I am new to Blockheads, and to your blog. I am loving both the Blockheads, and following the blogs. Looking forward to more blocks!

  195. My sister and I have been working together on some of your projects for quite a while now. I love working with the wool (I am a first timer) and the stitching is a great relaxation technique after a busy day. I am also become a starcher of fabrics and have picked up a few other techniques as well. All of your patterns are quite beautiful and sometimes it is hard to choose what to start on next. I have two quilts I am working on at the moment and just finished up two small projects for my daughter-in-laws. Since working on your quilt kits I have delegated more time to quilting as I love working with colors.

  196. Hi I just discovered your blog! I am from Ann Arbor, MI and would love to win your new fabrics!

  197. Hi
    I’m new to your blog, I’m from California ☀️ Your fabric is beautiful and so are your mini stars!

  198. Hi from a different lake in WI! I started following you on IG and I love your blog. Thanks for offering a giveaway!

  199. You are a busy gal! You are so talented and I love all you create. Can’t wait to see more!
    My fingers are crossed! Thanks for a chance to win. Oh, I am a follower ;-D

  200. Can’t wait to see both new lines! Very excited for you, but also for us as customers! Of course we will need these in our stash!

  201. Love, love, love the star block! Those tiny, little half square triangles are my favorite type of shape to put into a block!!

  202. Love your style. Your fabrics are always a must for me. I visited your WI shop while my husband & brother fished a tournament in early 2000s (’03-ish?) before I knew you but loved your shop so much!!!! Great memory!

  203. Flower Garden Gatherings is beautiful. I can’t wait. I have been admiring the fabrics on the top of your blog since they were posted. Can’t wait! (can you tell I’m excited!) Even though I don’t live in Wisconsin (use to) I’m excited to see 2019 shop hop fabric! So enjoy the BH and the creativity each of you designers put into each block!
    Thanks so much!

  204. Your new fabric line is yummy–and it looks so sweet hanging at the top of your blog! I would love to be locked away in my sewing studio with these charm packs!

  205. Congratulations on grandbaby #2 ! I have a friend that once told me when I was expecting my first grandchild…she said once they start coming they keep coming ! I now have #5 beauties ! Awesome name for your star block !! I have been a follower / purchaser of beautiful things for a long time. Thank you !

  206. Love your new line of fabrics coming, white and blue are perfect! You are an inspiration my dear!!!

  207. Another great BH block, I’ve enjoyed them all. I’m also looking forward to your new lines, it’s fun that they’re not matchy-matchy from one to another. I just finished a quilt top with snowman gatherings, finally. Thanks for the giveaway.

  208. Love anything red, white and blue and LOVE all of your designs. Thanks for the giveaway.

  209. Love your fabrics! I’ve been making another designers pattern that starts with 11/2 “ squares, so this block will help tweak my little piecing of triangles!

  210. Hi LIsa,!!!
    I so enjoy reading your blog and creating your fabulous designs!!! I am so excited for your new line to come out and can’t wait to make the Fly Away quilt. I am just as excited for your liberty line of fabrics too!!!!! Thanks so much for the offer of the charm packs and congratulations on the news of the upcoming arrival in your family. How exciting!!!!
