|Close up of Grandma's stocking|
Speaking of Christmas, my brother-in-law's girlfriend (and soon-to-be fiancee if I had to guess) had me in the gift exchange this year and she did a wonderful job with quilty things. She bought me Mettler thread (in white and grey), a quilt magazine and gift certificates to Greenwood Quiltery, my favourite LQS. I got to go shopping there on Thursday while my mother watched my daughter and I had a blast! Here is a mosaic of my purchases:
|Do you notice the Camp Sur in there? I love it. And the pirate sharks. And the pearl bracelets...|
I am thrilled, thrilled, thrilled with the grey Pearl Bracelets and have already used some on the back of Bouncing Bunnies.
Also on a Christmas note (to wrap everything up, pardon the pun), I made Decadence this past fall for the Christmas gift exchange at my mother-in-law's house. I was soooo worried that it would not be appreciated, or that it would go to someone who hates quilts. No need to worry! My husband's cousin, whom I adore, ended up with the quilt and she loves it. Despite being a young woman, she has a thing for quilts. She confessed that she has a quilt rack in her bedroom that holds just one quilt- one that her grandmother made her of her father's baby clothes years and years ago. She was going to pay someone she knows to make her a quilt. And now she has my chocolate and teal beauty to add to her rack! I am so happy someone who loves it took it home!
