I didn't get to my blog till today and what a surprise to see over over 500 views. I didn't expect that till later in the week. Thank you for all the wonderful comments.WOW!

Well, let's move on to what is in the box.... that is why you are here, right?

A quilter's tote bag. The latest issue of McCall's Quilting magazine. A Simply Minnesota pattern book. It is from the Minnesota Shop Hop (have 2) and it has some really nice patterns in it. It is from An awesome quilt shop and all the patterns are by them.


Dang! The picture turned and I can't get it to turn back! Well, you will just have to turn your head and tomorrow you can go see your friendly massage person. Anyway, here is  the Easy Dresden Ruler by Darlene Zimmerman. I love this ruler. Making Dresden's is so easy and so fun with this.  Yipes! Stripes! by Susie Weaver. It is pattern to use with striped batiks and almost looks like a log cabin design. Actually, I think any striped fabric would work. I saw the finished quilt in a shop in Casa Grande, AZ., it was awesome. Over the River #434 by Country Threads is a Winter pattern. A 30x41, perhaps a wall hanging or just a small quilt to throw over the back of a chair of sofa. Have you tried those Wonder Clips??? Oh my! You are going to love these. It is a 10 piece pack and I know once you try them you will be buying more!

Here we have a roll of Triangles on a Roll. 800 half square triangle blocks to make a 2" finished square. In the Chinese take out box is a Chilly Snowman Candle Mat.(10") I picked a few of these up Texas. I made 2 of them. Everything is included in the box. They are so cute. Thread! Neutral colored thread that we can all use. Two spools. A Charm Pack of Bliss. We all love Bliss...Don't we?  A whole bunch of 5" squares from Robert Kaufman called chick-a-dee.

  1. No comments yet? I hope #1 is the lucky one! I am in the process of moving my sewing room to a studio office where my longarm machine is set up. So my favorite part has to be my new Gammill Statler Stitcher. She is red, as described by a friend, she looks like a cinnamon red hot!

  2. I need to pay a visit to Melissa's new machine and see one up close and personal!! My favorite part of my sewing 'bunk room' is ... hmmmm ... I really have to sit and think about this. I love my mini design window, because it's most always got a little something pretty and "in the works" on it. I love my stash tubs, with all my pretty fabrics. But the peg board that hangs over the door and holds all my rulers and tools is pretty nifty and a space saver!! That's where I'm hanging my hat today! :)

    Congrats on the page views and the new followers, too!! And, before I forget ... FABULOUS GIVEAWAY!! :)

  3. My favorite part of my sewing room is the window. I can sit and watch the birds, watch for the mail lady to bring my packages, watch for my hubby to come home or watch the clouds float by.

  4. favorite part of my sewing room is my machine! What would I do without it? It sews and sews and sews.

  5. my sewing room is my dining room but my table stays covered with fabric and just sewing is wonderful
