A friend of mine shared her Quilting Sampler magazine with me.... bad friend! LOL! There were so many things in this issue that I'd like to try. There were also 11 shops showcased. They all showed different quilts or penny rugs or needle punch and also listed the name of the pattern and who designed it... Well, I just had to check them out and of course going on their web pages and looking at everything they have to offer just snowballed! Now there are even more things that I'd like to purchase the pattern for or try to do a new technique. I also found a couple of things that make for Christmas gifts next year. One was white tea towels with Santa in redwork. Also on YouTube if you search for quilted ornaments there's this really cute homespun Christmas bulb to hang from your tree. I also have a pattern to do simple, country Santas... Oh and did I mention that my job is interfering with everything that I want or need to do!?!? Working 7:30 - 4:00 every day is keeping me from doing all that I want to do! LOL! I'm going tonight after work to buy the storage bins for my craft room. Then I'm off until January 3. I have to take the car in for an oil change at 9:00 tomorrow morning and then I can come home and concentrate on my room! Maybe (Julia) I'll even try to marry some of my wool at some point this weekend. If I do I'll take pics and get them posted along with some pics of recent crafts. In the past I just made them, then gave them away without taking a picture - no more!
I'll also be adding other blogs that I follow to my blog page. I've had a couple add me as friends and I've been meaning to add them to my list and just haven't had the time. I apologize to them! So sorry! The time leading up to the holidays were just crazy for me!
On a different note - what are some of your New Year's traditions? Do you make resolutions? Do you plan a special meal? I don't make resolutions - I just routinely try to make changes in my life that need changed. I grew up in the south (Memphis, TN) and we always had pork and black-eyed peas and cornbread for New Year's Day meal. This was for luck and money. I still have the pork and I make black-eyed peas for myself as my hubby is a Yankee and doesn't like black-eyed peas and cornbread that isn't sweet.
Have a great day!
