You've got mail!

I had the best surprise yesterday! About a week ago Amanda Jean from Crazy Mom Quilts let me know that I had won her recent giveaway for a purse. Well, it arrived yesterday and it is fabulous!! It is the perfect size; big, but not too big and SO cute! I promptly transferred all my things into it! Thanks Amanda Jean!! I love it!! (I also love the quilt my bff made me......not only do I curl up with it pretty much every evening, it is also a frequent back drop for my pictures!! Thanks again Janelle!!)

























I did find my sewing machine cord. It had been packed up with my old sewing machine. I now have 2 cords so this never happens again! I am REALLY glad to have the use of my machine back and have been sewing as fast as I can........I am still not going to be done on time. Oh well, people are willing to wait for a quilt right?? Besides the on going quilt projects, I have also been working on some little gifts. Sew, Mama, Sew! had fun gift ideas complete with tutorials everyday in November. I have been using these ideas, and they are fun! I made myself and some friends these patchwork scarves (they are fleece on the back and oh so warm!)
Don't you love the headless photo?? LOL Then I have been making these fabulous crayon rolls for all the little people in our lives......I'm thinking about making one for me! :)

Ok, love it ALL! That scarf is adorable ;) Oh and those crayon rolls? Fantastic! I need you to teach me how to make those so I can have something to put crayons in for church!

Those scarves ARE super cute!! I saw them in my head but so much cuter IRL!!! You are the craftiness Godess and I bow to your skills!!! Who needs bow hunting skills???

Fabulous!! I've made a few of those scarves, too.

I'd love to teach you applique. It is so easy, just tedious.

So happy to find your blog! Your talents are amazing--I love the scarf and the idea for the crayon roll. I can't wait to read all your older entries (because I need another reason to stay up late :)).

Love the purse. Seriously. Love it. And I'm dying to know, who is the musician that sings the song on your blog?
