Dear Santa

Dear Santa,

Most of the items on my Christmas wishlist this year involve fabric. It is very hard to narrow it down to a few items, but I know even Santa has limits. This year, I would really love to receive an Eva Layer Cake. Layer cakes are very handy for those quick quilting projects, and after all the sewing I did for Christmas presents this year, that's what I need. I love this line, the fabric is very soft and the colors are gorgeous.

Maya Loves Quilts

This is what Maya does while I sew bindings on quilts. She gets annoyed when I have to rotate the quilt to keep sewing it.

Quilt for Grandma

Finished my grandma's quilt. It looks fantastic in person and is a great size. I didn't take very good pictures of it, but I'm sure she'll really like it.

My new favorite fabric website: http://www.hawthornethreads.com

And a fun giveaway!

This site is super functional. I especially love that you can search by color. It's as close as you can get shopping at a brick and mortar store.

Several Christmas Gifts Down, Too Many More to Go

So I'm attempting to have a crafty Christmas and create something for everyone on my list. So far, I've got two quilts for my sisters and one for my Grandma finished. Well - binding still to be sewn on G-mas. I have to finish the binding on a table runner for my mother in law, do a quilt for my mother, four make up bags for my sisters and sister in laws, table runner for my grandmother in law, fleece blanket for my father and sister's boyfriend.
