Santa Came!

I must have been a very good girl this year, because Santa left some very nice goodies!  I got a beautiful watch and some sewing goodies from DH
Santa also dropped off a new large cutting mat, a scallop template, some fabric, and a cute little bag. And a very generous gift certificate for Fat Quarter Shop.

I also received some lovely surprises from bloggy friends.  This lovely tea towel, along with some other cat-themed items and a beautiful ornament came from the very talented Di of Quilting is Blissful.  It's simple but elegant, and the stitching is perfect.  Thanks Di!

Another package arrived from my friend, Maria, of Life on the Block.  I love it!  Thanks Maria.
After all the gifts were opened, our granddaughter came over for the day while her mother was working.  We started the day with a nice breakfast casserole, and then baked some cookies. 

Then we took a break and I gave her a cross stitching lesson. 

We had to clear out of the kitchen so dh could whip up a wonderful dinner, which we planned when DSD got off work.  The two of them had other family commitments later, so dh got a nap and some reading time, and I got some sewing time!  An all around wonderful day.  Hope yours was wonderful as well!
