Freda's Hive during her blogaversary week. My goodies arrived Monday and I was as giddy as a little school girl. Since I was the 'first' pick winner...( yes, I hear some of you gnashing your teeth )...I picked the japanese fabric charms and japanese project book. I love these!! Sweet Nanette also included one of her teeny little house ornaments she made along with this wonderful linen teacup kitchen towel. I'm so loving the pale blue polka dots she trimmed it in. I'm assuming the teacup fabric is japanese too. Thank you so much for your generosity Nanette!!
Colorful Art Girl blog. I didn't even know there was a drawing when I left a comment!
This group of santas are my 'House of Hatten' collection. They are from the 80's and are meant to look like wood carvings, but they are kind of like a heavy paper mache. I think my favorite is the one in front with the reindeer!
This is going to be my last post...( maybe )...until after the new year. I want everyone to know how much I have enjoyed blogging and meeting EVERYONE of you. I have had THE best time since I started blogging back in June. Quilting bloggers are the best in the world. I've laughed, cried, lurked around a bit and have just basically learned TONS. I have only started quilting in the last year and have been amazed at how willing everyone is to help and share their ideas and encouragement when you need it the most.....anytime day or night...( even at 4 in the morning....right Melanie?? )...help is there when you need it most. The best support system I have ever seen. WARM FEELINGS OUT TO EVERYONE, especially my loyal followers...( and you know who you are )...and a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS TOO!
P.S. I have had numerous emails about the little stars I have been making.....I have worked up a little tutorial on them and shortly after the first of the year I will do a posting and show you how to make some of your own..........until then......peace be with you!
Your Blogging Friend Forever!
