We made it back from Massachusetts! We drove back in fog that was as thick as Pea soup! Thankfully it subsided as we drove out of New Hampshire!
The Yankee swap was a blast! I have attached a link for those who would like a bit more information about the game.
I feel I made out like a bandit! I was number 10 (ten), out of 11 (eleven) people. Of course number 1 (one) is the best number but 10 (ten) isn't too shabby!
Here are my little goodies! Don't you just love that little guy?
He's technically called a USB HUB MAN. He's the cutest little guy and so functional! He gives me 4 (four) more USB ports! No more reaching in the back of my laptop.
The bright object on the left is an "Office Glitter Rocket", a sort of lava lamp that connects to your computer. It plugs into a USB port, so my little guy takes care of him.
The Glitter Rocket sort of reminds me of a disco ball but in miniature! lol It's actually relaxing to look at!
I also had an opportunity to go shopping at my favourite quilt shop, The quilted Crow.
I fell in love with these fabrics. They are so delicious!
The large print is from Purely Provence created by Renee Nanneman of Need'l of Love.
The picture really doesn't do it justice to the fabric's beauty. The colours are so rich! Oh, and so nice to fondle! ;o)
I do have a project in mind for these that I will share with you when I'm more organized. I feel the need to complete something before I tackle a new project! Perhaps this will be a great motivator! lol
I also bought these little goodies!
I purchased the charm pack Urban Indigo a fabric line from Fig Tree Quilts to use as a guide for a quilt that I would like to to make from a book by Acorn Quilt and Gift Company - Comfort & Joy. Darlene tempted me last summer! So many quilts I would like to make out of that book! I never get tired of looking at the pictures!
Yes, it's another hand embroidery pattern and I confess I'm hooked on embroidery!
Speaking of embroidery, I have finished one of the panels for French Cottage Garden quilt. I decided to leave my mum's embroidery stitches! I really had to tame the perfectionist in me! My mom even suggested that I rip them out and I said "no way, they're staying". I want to give historians something to ponder! ;o)
Wow, this turned out to be a long post! Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!
