In the mail today was this fun surprise package from Heather Mulder Peterson of Anka's Treasures. Look at all the new patterns and 2 new books. I'm so excited! I won these when I entered a blog hop drawing from her blog. I can't wait to sit down and look through each pattern.
Also coincidentally today my sister-in-law called because she opened her Christmas present I sent her (I knew she'd open it early, she just can't wait) and was thrilled to have her new tablerunner, which just happens to be an Anka's Treasures pattern. I posted about it just earlier this month. I'm glad she loves it and she even sent me a picture of it on her dining table.

Material Girls Idaho

Here's a few sneak peaks of some of the projects that were shown at my quilt group's meeting last week. Aren't they cute!

My Material Girl buddies out did themselves this month and we had a great show and tell. Here's a link to the group's page so you can see what everyone came up with this month.

Check, it's done. I'm probably going to have a hard time giving this one away because I really love it. They're colors I love and use in my home, but I actually am more excited to give it as a gift.
I finished it with some machine quilting.

I love how it turned out and it was fun using the 60 degree ruler to make these hexagons. The pattern is from Heather Mulder Peterson's book, Sizzlin'Sixties.

Gingerbread search

I bought this cute little gingerbread girl and ever since I've been looking for other gingerbread people to add to her family. It's so cute and I would love to have more things with gingerbread men on them. I may just have to make a quilt, but I really do love this little knitted girl. Maybe I'll find the time to use a brown sock and beads and make my own, but I could really use a pattern. I'm better at copying something cute rather than coming up with something cute on my own.

Finally got the tree all put together last night. We always put a picture of Christ on the tree so He doesn't get lost amid all the glitter and glam of Christmas.
