I hope you all had a lovely Christmas time! It was very restful and low-key here without either a trip to my parents or a visit from them. Next year we'll have to plan some new activities so their absence isn't so glaring. I'm still kind of hoping they relocate within reasonable driving distance.
Many cookies were made, carols sung, and there was pie. My oldest boy was commenting on my youngest's creative use of M&M's on the gingerbread men and I told him, "I don't know about that, but he does have more chocolate on his!"
I mentioned in my last post that my hubby isn't the greatest at buying presents. Christmas Eve day had him running out to the closest Walmart to get the candles I told him I liked. Good thing I bought myself some quilting goodies!
If you follow my "Quilting Designs with Rulers" Pinterest board, you'll see that I've pinned a bunch of quilts by the sisters of Sew Kind of Wonderful. I finally bought their Quick Curve rulers and a mini pattern.
I also bought this really cute pattern from the Straight Stitch Society. I've been wanting to make something small and cute for a while and have been eyeing this pattern. When I saw Linda at Flourishing Palms had made it, I resolved to get it for myself.
Now, as is my habit at this time of year, it's all about focusing and planning for the upcoming year!
