I have been so negligent of this blog lately, but I wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas. We will have family arriving tomorrow and my computer will be quiet for awhile as we celebrate with our family and friends.
In an effort to catch up a wee bit, I have had some exciting mail arriving in my mailbox. First off was this delightful postcard from Linda. We participated in the postcard swap that Sheila sponsored. Her quilting on it is just wonderful and my little ones here love it.
I also had a couple of really nice wins lately. The first was from Carol of Just Let Me Quilt. Look at these beautiful fabrics, folded in a Christmas star pattern – so clever. Included in the package was a fabulous antique spool. These have always fascinated me and I have a very small collection of them. Needless to say, I was thrilled.
Nancy at Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe has had a daily giveaway for Christmas and I was lucky enough to be selected as one of the winners. She has such gorgeous hand dyed fabrics, floss and supplies for stitching. Look at these stunning colors of floss.
Last weekend DH and I took off to the beach for a couple of days before the busy week. We enjoyed sitting on the beach watching the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets as we admired God’s color palette. It was such a nice break from all of the busyness to relax and contemplate the real meaning of the season.
In closing, I wish everyone a safe and blessed Christmas. It will be 2015 before we know it.
