Merry Wednesday Before Christmas

I received a very pretty gift in the mail from Sue of Quilt Times (http://www.quilttimes.blogspot.com/ ).  It's the mug rug pictured below.   I love it.  Thanks, Sue.  (And the card is cute, too.)

I won this group of vintage Christmas fabric from Colleen of  Lucky Duck Dreams. (http://www.cyarnell.blogspot.com/ ) The fabrics are just what I like.   Thank you Colleen.

And as you can see on the left, there were more pillow cases in the works.

I won this book during SewCalGal's Christmas Quilt Show. ( http://www.sewcalgal.blogspot.com/ )  It's really neat.  The blocks can either make a quilt or be used to make runners,  mats, stockings, etc.  It's a sweet book by Melinda Bula.  
Thank you, Darlene.

 I also want to acknowledge Barbara from Cat Patches ( http://www.catpatches.blogspot.com/ ) who has a Fun Friday contest each week.  I won a fat quarter of red fabric which I can't show to you because I've already sewn with it.  It was the perfect color for what I was doing. 
Thank you, Barbara. 

I apologize for not being able to keep up with the posts of the blogs I love to follow.  I'm not one of those women who can do it all.   But I will catch up one day soon.  I want to know and see what you are all up to.

I hope you are enjoying this time of year and this beautiful celebration of faith.  I am. 

I also want to mention that on January 3rd I will be celebrating the one year anniversary of my blog.  I'll have a giveaway, if not on that exact day then soon after. What a wonderful year it's been for my sewing life.  It would be even better if I catch up on all of my projects.  Maybe that's what I'll get for Christmas; time and motivation.

God Bless You.
