Hubby wanted me to show "Hey, Santa Please Stop Here" since it is hung on the wall, so here it is.....
We have a vaulted ceiling so I was very pleased with the way it displayed. The piece was done for the HO HO HO Blog Hop and you can read about my entry here.
I am anxious to get back to quilting, seems like forever since I have done any but it really hasn't been that long. The Friday and Saturday before Christmas I played Santa and made hubby a new pair of PJ's.
Since only he and I see them, (til now) I generally make them fun. The pair he retired had drive in movie theater symbols on the shirt. He really enjoys planes so this pair has fighter planes with flannnel pants. He likes the shirt to be cotton and the pants flannel and you just can't buy them that way. So I change from quilter to seamstress briefly to make his jammies.
I have two really wonderful Santas in my life, dear hubby gave me the Joyce Meyer "Everyday Life Bible" for Christmas (my favorite gift). We had been in a Mardel Christian Store and I had seen them in hardback and softback and a wonderful pink leather and hubby wrote it down because he told me today he would never have remembered it til Christmas and ordered it from Mardel and look which one he gave me. Isn't it lovely?
My second Santa is son and he always asks his dad and I for a list of our wishes and I always put that I want a gift certificate to the local quilt shop. Well, this year he stepped it up with a little help from the lovely owner of the local quilt shop. I had been wanting this kit called Serenity by Coach House Designs so it was gifted to me by son.
He is not at all intimidated with going into the quilt shop since he and the owner when to high school together. I was so excited to receive the kit I had been wanting. I am sure this will be a NewFO for the blog event Cat Patches sponsors monthly, you can find her button on my side bar to read all about it.
I have been using Electric Quilt for a few years now and often design quilts with my students when they want something special and had mentioned that EQ7 had a lot of new features, hubby was listening and he and son went together and gifted me this....
They both gave me other gifts but these were my favorites, well maybe I should show you one more gift....
Will men ever learn not to give their wives things to work with for Christmas....actually I was very pleased with my new skillet. Had been needing it for quite a while and just hadn't gotten around to getting it and hubby remembered that too.
Well that is it for me, hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!
