Catching up. . .
I need to get caught up on quite a few things today. First, I received another Christmas gift from Di. She sent this beautiful table topper, and it's even hand quilted. She also included a nice little sweater for one of my bears, and a bon-bon. The bon-bon was filled with M&M's, but somehow they seem to have disappeared.
I used the table topper on the table with my hors douevres on Christmas, and received very nice comments on it.
I also received some Hexie flowers from Anna, just because. She also sent some fabric which is destined to become part of more flowers. Thanks Anna!
We had a very nice Christmas, filled with family and friends. Santa brought us some gifts, and most of mine were stitchy things. I received fabric, scissors, needles and rotary blades. I'm terrible about changing my rotary blades, so I immediately put a new one in my cutter, and it's amazing how well it works. Why don't I change them more often? I also put a new needle in Fiona, and she's very happy..
I got a little behind on my BSA blocks, but today I mailed off my December and January blocks. This block went to Shannon for December:
And this block went to Andra for January:
I've been working on finishing several small projects, and will have more pictures soon. I'm trying to dig out my sewing desk, and instead of moving the piles around, I'm trying to finish up the project. It feels great. I have a huge list of projects to do, and I'm going to tackle them one at a time. No more buying! Just sewing.
