Hope your Christmas was lovely. Ours was quiet and laidback = perfect! My husband made me a custom 'card catalog' to my specifications and needs in his Santa's Workshop and it will be perfect to store notions and sewing miscellany. He needs to stain it, but otherwise it's already feeling like a wonderful, heirloom piece to me. I can hardly wait to find a place for it in my sewing room and begin using it. Maybe it will help me become more organized in 2014?!
And oh the goodness continued with my sister-in-law, who works in a quilt shop (how fun!) sending me a packet of Baby Charms with coordinating fabric for the inner and outer border that she marked for me in the photo below, left. Melissa, my youngest daughter, gave me 2 different coordinating fabrics, 2 yds. each (perfect yardage!), quilting pins and awesome coordinating buttons in the photo below, right. I think she knows me well! My oldest daughter, who lives out of state, sent me Christmas greetings via a sweet card.
I asked Melissa if the two fabrics she purchased were from a 'set' and she said no, she simply walked around until she found 2 that would coordinate with each other in colors that she thought I would like. I think I need to take her with me to pick out fabric from now on.
