Then I started on the quilting and binding for these little Christmas quilts. In the middle of pressing I dumped my coffee and ruined all the binding(it was originally white with red polka dots). I did manage to finish them, though.
I turned this orphan block into a table topper. I thought it might turn out to be a pillow, but the last thing I need around here is another pillow. This will be fun on the kitchen table in the spring. Doesn't it say spring to you?
I have some thank you's today. I won giveaways at Doris's blog, Threads of Conversation and Sherri's blog, A Quilting Life. Doris sent me that lovely stack of blue fabric. That's some fabric goodness! Thanks Doris! Sherri sent me this cute basket and two potholders. The potholders are in use in the kitchen (so much better than my nasty black ones) and I use the basket in my sewing room. Thanks Sherri, they are so great and I use them both every day! Lastly Lisa Boyer of Dorky Homemade quilts sent me this gorgeous Hawaiian fabric as a thank you. She won my little quilty neighborhood. Thanks Lisa, the fabric is fab!
A "fun alert" for all of you. Nanette, of Freda's Hive is celebrating her one year blogging anniversary. She's celebrating all week long. Be sure and check her out. She has the most gorgeous fabric collection and wonderful patterns to buy and her blog is such a happy, inspiration filled place. Head on over and say hi and congratulations.
