I wanted to share with you a couple of gifts I received over Christmas.
My sweet friend Bren sent me a lovely package that included a gorgeous Thomas Kinkade mug, a knitted dish cloth and this wonderful little item.
As I'm sure you can imagine it was burning a hole in my wallet, so while we were out today I put it to good use and converted it to this, thank you Bren. A rather fuzzy photo, due to the lack of natural sunlight (sounds good doesn't it?).
I've been admiring this book on many of the blogs I visit, and my sweetie took notice of the wish list I wrote and purchased it along with this one, another one that a few of you have the pleasure of owning.
Both books hold patterns to beautiful quilts, one's I'm sure will bring hours of pleasure in the making.
I've started to make a rough draft of the items I'd like to make for Christmas gifts next year. I know some of you are probably thinking I'm crazy, but hey what can I say, other than I like to be organized, just ask my "sweetie".
Kim asked a couple of days ago what quilting resolutions we'd made for 2008. So I'm also in the process of compiling a list of the things I'd like to complete next year, and trying to keep it all achievable. I still have a few things to add to it, but I hope to post that list within the next few days. For now I'm just going to enjoy the quiet and put my sewing room back together and wash some of those beautiful fabrics.
Happy Stitching and thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment.
