I had to go back to work this past week... Oh boy, was it a lonngg one! Finished the binding on this quilt, have a couple more to do. Also, I have a couple of friends quilts upstairs to sew also. But it's a cold and icky day outside and I don't want to do much of anything.

This is my first time at ever trying a wool project. I bought this little table topper kit at Road to California with no threads..Stupid me! So, I went down to Temecula yesterday and talked wit the the wool lady and got all my threads to work on it. I still have questions..like..on the trees the trunk... do I stitch ALL the way around, even at the very top? Or do I just do the outside part and stop when I get to the branches. How about Santas sack? Do I go ALL the way around on top of like his hat and suit, or do I stop when the outside edge ends? Am I even asking the right way on what I even mean? Stupid, I know.. but when you have never done it before and there is no one to ask... it goes on my blog!

I am one of the grand prize winners... I got excited when I got the first letter..Didn't want to jinx myself until I got proof in the mail. So it's official now..Rules and regulations stated that I won a flat screen TV. This is even better... I get to go and pick out the one I want!
I have a Notion blog has a really neat needle exchange program going on. If you send an old or broken sewing machine needle to them... they send you a titanium needle back to you. There are different ones you can choose from too! Go check it out.
