Happy New Year everyone! May all your seams be straight and a perfect 1/4”.
At the outset, please allow me to thank you all for your encouragement as well as your thoughts and prayers with respect to my health issues. I am overwhelmed by your support and can’t begin to express how much your words and comments mean to me. Each and every one of you play a huge part in keeping my spirits high.
You already know it but let me remind you one more time…you all rock!!!
Last evening, Mac and Frankie curled up in front of the fire in the kitchen as Mr. Painted Quilt and I watched the Canadians take on the Americans in the World Junior hockey tournament.
Having lived in both countries for half my life, it’s difficult for me to declare a favorite but if the truth be known, I guess the scales are tipped a little to the side of the red and white. It was a close game and the final score was Canada 3, USA 2.
There has been a lot of buzz around blogland in the last few days about the free mystery quilt called the 12 Days of Christmas offered by the Temecula Quilt Co. It started on Christmas Day and a new block is presented on each of the 12 days of Christmas.
I hemmed and hawed but yesterday I joined in and caught up by making the first seven blocks. Each one finishes at 3 1/2” and works up very quickly. It only took about an hour to cut out and piece the seven blocks. I was looking for something small and uncomplicated to sew during the holidays and this has turned out to be the perfect project.
It’s not too late to join in. Check it out by clicking on the link above and it’ll take you to the Temecula Quilt Co. blog. The eighth block will be released later today.
On my last post, I wrote about the personalized cotton twill labels that I recently purchased. Many of you asked if I would share the source.
Of course I will!
Just click HERE and you will be magically transported to MommieMadeIt’s Etsy shop. I am really pleased with the quality, service and price and they sure beat having to make my own labels!
I gave Lisa the head’s up that some of you might be stopping by and she’s ready for you. *wink*
