Season's Greetings charm pack and ME The Caroler Jelly roll. I also got a pattern: Santa's Christmas Card from Pieces of My Heart. Getting a head start on next year!?
If you don't know about Missouri Quilt Company, go check it out. Everyday at 12:00 AM Central Time (US) they post a daily deal. Trust me, these are GREAT DEALS. Their shipping is also very reasonable (for continental US).
Their blog community is fun too, and they have a Friday Freebie forum and they give something away every week.
Prairie Moon Quilts held an end of year challenge with 5 tasks to complete. A few pics from my efforts:
Magazines/Books Before And After.
I took off all the non-book items so there is a bit more room now.... hmmmm I could have dusted off that top shelf before I took the pic! HOW does dust get on a shelf that was previously completely covered with stuff!?
Also, by clearing out this area, I found 2!! things that I had been looking for and had no idea where I had put them. Yay Me!
Still some work to be done in my sewing room (quilt store?). But I did make a good start thanks to this challenge. And once I start sewing for my 2010 UFO challenge you know the scraps will be back!!
Hope everyone had a safe and Happy New Years celebration. I stayed up till 12:00 (and beyond) not because I was celebrating, but because as I get older I seem to stay up later. What is that about?
AND if you have made it this far in this long post, let me leave you with this thought, which ties in with my "One Word" Forgive:
