Now you think I would have had the decency to sew something on my newly cleaned dream of a machine. Nah! As ya'll know already we are nearing the best holiday of the year and there are just things that need to be taken care of now!
Looking at Christmas presents online for moi;)
I ordered the Alicia Paulson ABC crewel work pattern...
I also did some fabric shopping on fabric.com and picked up some minky on sale at 15% off for Jade's quilt backing and some nice flannel for another baby quilt in the making. To round out the total and incur free shipping I added on a spool of Aurifil thread in bubblegum and some Sulky Solvy paper I have been wanting to try out.
Then I had an Amazon gift card from my B-day so I went over to their website and picked up a new 8" embroidery hoop and rotary cutter blades AND I was able to order the much sought after Vintage Quilt Revival book by Lee Heinrich, Katie Blakesley and Faith Jones. I have to wait until the end of the month or beginning of Jan. before I see the book,but that's fine by me. As long as it gets here safely!
My final splurge for Christmas entailed Wee Wanders by Sarah Jane. I ordered 1 yd each of 5 different prints which should be be shipped to me at the end of Jan. The fireflies and footprints lured me in---I couldn't help myself!!!!
After my overindulgence, I thought hmmm....maybe I should get some fabric for a changing pad. Well..........laminate fabric is quite expensive and I knew I could get a changing pad elsewhere for much less. I know, I know....but it won't be unique and handmade by mommy,but I DO have my limits. I wanted laminate due to one obvious reason of keeping it clean easier.
Today it was the day to get that darn Lucky Stars December block finished and out of the way!
BTW....my Janome is working beautifully and I am oh so eager to do some real sewing on it.....not this 5 minute type stuff;)
