I popped into my fabulous local quilt shop on Saturday. Everything there is just so yummy. I was really tempted by a book on how to make the original sock monkey. And then I thought, why? Who would I be making sock monkeys for? But I did find an on sale bundle of Christmas fabric. 5 half metre cuts. I love the retro Santa print. I will have to use it for something where I can leave it as whole as possible because it is just too cute! What is really silly is that last year, I would not have even looked at Christmas fabric. I had this idea that so much Christmas fabric is... blech. You know, big glittery poinsettias and so on. Oh my goodness, I just needed Christmas fabric educating!
A picked up a fat quarter of these trees from Countdown to Christmas by Sweetwater for Moda. Cute!
I spent the day at the day at the sewing machine. I churned out some finishes and some farmer's wife blocks. I even started a new quilt. I need intervention.
Tomorrow is the big Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day. I will be linking up and having a giveaway here. I will also be checking out all the giveaways on other blogs!!!! It is so exciting!
