Thank You!

I have been having such a great time reading everyone’s comments for both give-aways, and although a little slow, I am responding to all of them – and hopefully before 2012 gets here – just kidding! Thank you for all the wonderful comments about my blog and for choosing to follow me. I have lots of ideas for the coming year and hope you will enjoy visiting often.
Tomorrow I will be announcing the winner of my give-away for the Blog Hop Party with Quilting Gallery! So you have till tonight at mid-night to enter this one.
But there’s still time for the Christmas Tree – until the 24th!
…after cutting the little Red-n-White Christmas Tree kit for the give-away,
I decided to cut a few more kits for Christmas gifts
just love how neat they look!

Then, for last week’s Friday Night Sew In, I worked on these cute little Magnetic Button Ring pincushions for some of my dear quilting friends, following this tutorial at Sew We Quilt 
Aren’t they darling? and very useful too 🙂

I hope you’ve enjoyed visiting all the blogs in both of these events
and all the great Christmas ideas shared.

See you soon,

Stay tuned for an all sewing-machine binding tutorial,
yes, no hand work!

On my design wall today…

I made this fun snowflake following this tut!
It is really easy and would look lovely by a window or perhaps in my office.
This was just a test, and will be making a few more using bright Christmas fabrics.

Of course, you can always make it out of paper. Follow this link for a great tut
and then, there’s always Martha Stewarts version, ha… check out this YouTube

Hope you give it a try!
