My Fabric for Tis the Season

I have been keeping a very low profile these days as I am a little embarassed that I have not gotten anything done for this yet...  I was at club a week or so and I found my fabric.  I love what I have picked and I can't wait to start, seeing how I am a month behind or 2 to some of you...
The fabric that I have picked is called Fruitcake by Basic Grey Moda
