Merry Christmas!

I did not make any gifts for my family for Christmas this year, just Christmas wrapping, but I received a couple of crafty presents from other sewers.

I received two lovely Christmas gifts from people in my sewing groups.

From Sandy, I received this cute frame in our local sewing group’s Kris Kringle swap. What a clever idea: framing a quilt block! She even made it reversible. If I open the back, I can flip the block and display its pink side instead.

A patchwork block in a frame is such a simple yet effective gift for other quilters.

Serena of Sew Giving, part of the Possum Magic gang, made me this Liberty pouch. I think I will use it for my crochet hooks.

Serena of Sew Giving made the pouch and generously included some pretty Liberty fabric too.

And to top it off, my husband signed me up for Blossom Heart Quilts’ Japanese colour club next year as my Christmas gift! Whoo hoo! Every month a bundle of fabrics I would not be able to buy locally will magically appear on our doorstep. I have found a perfect loophole in a fabric diet where I am trying to reduce my fabric purchases – encourage my husband to feed my habit!

I hope you are having a lovely Christmas with family and friends. Merry Christmas!

  1. Gorgeous little gifts! I’d ask if your husband can give my husband the Japanese fabric club details as I have a birthday coming up soon… only I really, really don’t need more fabric, no matter how gorgeous. Next year isn’t going to be a fabric fast, more a question of ticking some existing projects off the list.

    • The link is just there in the post! My hubby also surprised me with an antique silver thimble from 1900, and it fits perfectly!

      I am on a fabric diet, not a fast! 🙂 Like you, I have to focus my attention on ticking off some projects.

I appreciate your comments and will reply by email.
