Christmas was beyond crazy. When you have a cute guy (yes, I'm biased) everyone wants a piece of him. It was a wonderful Christmas, but we didn't put a Christmas tree up this year because 1) we didn't have one, 2) we couldn't afford one, and 3) I didn't need MY Hunter to pull it down! So.......yesterday my Mom called me and told me that she found one at Hobby Lobby that was originally $500 on sale for $50!!!!!! AND she bought 3 boxes of lights for under $10 at Garden Ridge!!!!!!!!! Thank God for moms!
I'm still working on my Secret Santa quilt. No too much progress there. BUT one of the girls that I work with is getting married early March....which means she needs a wedding quilt! I'm using Moda's Pure to make a french braid quilt. I've never made a french braid quilt before, but Pure's pretty blues and browns are just gorgeous!!!!! I can't wait to finish it and give it to her and her soon-to-be!!!! I think it's completely appropriate choice of colors.....you know....something blue!
Also, I saw a picture from the Houston Quilt Show of this:
Isn't it beautiful! I had to have one! So after some searching I found out the The Quilt Show was offering up this BOM from Sue Garmin! This looks waaaaaaay beyond my quilt knowledge level, but there's no harm in gathering up the fabric and patterns for the future, right?!
