Here are a few things that I got for Christmas. A new sewing chair from Ikea. I may change the cushion, but for now I like it.
A new Quilt Book. It is good, more words than photos, but still a good additon to my collection.
Hooray! Santa brought my custom stencils! Here is the double baptist fan.
The basic large baptist fan.
And here is one that I designed called "wave length". The company is adding it to their wholesale on line catalog.
They will not be offering my large fans as they said that quilt shops don't have the room to display them. No Problem, I will be selling them here at the blog and will add the pricing and order information soon. I also have to order more as they only sent a sample set.
Not technically a Christmas gift, but I did win an awesome give away from my friend Rachael, at Bluemountaindaisy. Rachael's blog is always a wonderful place to visit. Her work and style are a constant inspiration to me. She makes beautiful things and always has wonderful photos.
I won this delightful group of kittie fabrics. I plan to make a little Luna memory quilt from them.
She also sent this large piece of bonus fabric~ She remembered that I was really taken by the Shelburne circus exhibit a couple of years ago. I A-dore this fabric!! Thank you so much Rachael for a super fun surprise package.
Speaking of Luna, I made this label for my Hot Flash quilt, which included a little tribute to her. Was a sweet visitor to the sewing room.
I have been using Sharon Schamber's method of gluing the binding down on the back side and drying it with a hot iron. You must use school glue ONLY so that it washes out completed. I use a spare amount a bit away from the edge that I'll be stitching.
This makes sewing the binding down a pleasure!
From my home to yours, I hope you had a nice Christmas and have a safe and Happy New Year.
See you in 2015
