Seriously people I gotta get my act together earlier next year. If we all start Christmas sewing in September (together) then you'll help me be finished on time so I can have some holiday cheer the last week before Christmas. I know I complain a lot.
Here is what was sent from my house. I have more to go but they will be late - New Years gifts maybe? I'm not usually a late type person. My dad was early to everything and it was a good habit to learn as a kid. So we always did things early and got places early. Maybe I'm losing it. Who knows.
Production sewing. These are so fun. I love making the hot pads. It is just like making a teeny tiny quilt.
So here is my fabulous fabric for Friday. These are Mini Miu Japanese tiny print fabrics. I got them from Corrie and Des at Quilt Taffy. Aren't the prints darling. I love everything about them. Corrie and Des do some great stuff up there in Idaho.
So to wrap up my blog anniversary give away - I wanted to tell you what the winners chose as their prize and answer a couple of questions. First off the Japanese patchwork book number - ISBN 9784140311493 . Sorry Amy I meant to put that out there earlier for you. And one of you (eek I forget who) wanted to know what my label on the wedge bag said - "One of a kind from Freda's Hive." I got the idea to have printed ribbon from Pam's "Restless" post in July 2008. Anyway she talks about getting printed ribbon from Namemaker. The printed ribbon is fun.
Winners and what they picked:
Belinda - Japanese Patchwork book and Fabric
Linda - Bag kit and patterns
Hetty - Baby Quilt
Cheryl- Baby Quilt kit from the pattern in Fon's and Porter
Kristin - Wedge bag
Amanda - Christmas tree and ornaments
Doris - Kitchen Towels
I hope to get up to date with what everyone is doing but it may be until after Christmas. But then it's my 29th wedding anniversary. And then New Years. Well - sometime!
