Did anyone notice that Christmas came and went in a flash? We joined family members for a fairly low-key celebration, and had a really nice time. Good food, lots of laughs, traditional card games, and stockings full of goodies.
I also received gifts from a couple of my blogging friends. My friend Di sent a box full of fun stuff.
That stocking is very tiny and cute, and the snowman cushion is adorable.
From the lovely Maria I got this cute little tree wall hanging, complete with lights and decorations, and a Santa ornament.
She even sent the hanger for the tree so I could hang it immediately.
I even received some unexpected gifts before Christmas. The Fat Quarter Shop had a drawing and I won a fat eighth bundle of Brenda Riddle’s Ambleside collection.
It’s beautiful, and I already have a plan for it. Coming soon…
One day I commented on Angela’s blog, and without realizing it, I was entered for a drawing to win this beautiful bundle of rainbow fabrics. I’m planning to participate in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge in 2015, so I’m well on my way!
As far as the gifts I made and gave, I showed most of them many months ago. I couldn’t show this one though, and now it’s been received in its new home.
My BIL and SIL collect and grow day lilies, so as soon as I saw the name of this quilt in Primitive Quilts and Projects, I knew I had to make it. It was brown in the magazine, but I was easily able to change it to blue to fit in their house.
I’ve already finished my February UFO for guild.
I bought the fabric for this in 2009, and when I finally got around to making it, I didn’t think I would still like it, but I do.
I have several other projects going, and hope to finish up a couple of small things by the end of this week. I’m doing some cleaning and organizing in my sewing room (again) and I’m preparing a new Traveling Stash box that will be ready to start on its journey soon. Stay tuned for a chance to enter a drawing.
I’m also working on my Word for 2015, and making plans to join several online projects in the new year. more about that later – this post is long enough. Thanks for stopping by!
