Did you get what you wanted for Christmas?

Did you get what you wanted for Christmas?  Mooch did!  She got a pink catnip mouse and became a wild beast on Christmas Eve.  It took her less than 1/2 hour to tear off the tail and pull out the stuffing.  Catnip all over the floor and, after she was done rolling in it, all over the house!

If you judge a good Christmas by the amount of laughter in the house, this year was a great one! My granddaughters and I made red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting for Christmas Eve dessert.  I think there was more frosting on them than the cupcakes, but a lot of laughing and fun went on in the kitchen.  They were yummy!

And now we’re down to the last week of 2010!   Many of you are finishing up quilts and some of you  have sent me photos!  I love seeing what you’ve done.  Several weeks ago Brigette showed me a quilt on Moda Bake Shop designed by Stephanie Roman.  When I saw the design I fell it love with it and when I realized it was designed by Stephanie I loved it even more!  Not only is Stephanie sweet, she’s so talented!

Then one of my blog readers, Deborah Pruden, sent me a photo of a quilt she made using my fabric from Lily & Will.  She used Stephanie’s pattern! Isn’t it a small world? Don’t you love her quilt?

And Snowbound quilts are getting finished!  All the way from Italy comes this beautiful version from Agatha!

And just look at these other photos she sent!  You’ll know the one that captured my heart when you see it…

Thanks for sharing Deborah and Agatha!  I love the quilts.

FYI,  I’ve just added some patterns that are being discontinued at 50% off to my web site.  If you see a pattern that you’ve been thinking about buying now is the time!  3 pages of patterns at 50% off.

And have you seen the Lily & Will II advance precuts I’ve added to my web site?  I have a very LIMITED number, but if you love the yellow or aqua you can buy it now before it ships to the stores.  You’ll find some Lily & Will II under “what’s new“!

Happy last Monday in 2010 everyone!

Anne

  • Christine - I was looking for the Snowbound blocks to download August-December (I was very pregnant at that time and didn’t have a chance to get them). Is there anyway I can get the patterns I’m missing? Now that I’ve had my daughter I’d love to work on the blocks when she’s sleeping (the RARE moments she’s sleeping). I’ll be so sad not to finish up!!ReplyCancel
