Boxing Day

Well, Christmas has come and gone for another year. All that activity is over now. All the shopping, cleaning, wrapping, cooking, and visiting is done. Well, except for the fabric shopping... that activity continues all year round!
When I went shopping in search of a sashing fabric for my Grinch project, I did find the perfect fabric for the sashing AND the binding.  
Total deliciousness!

But uh oh... while at the quilt store, I fell in love with a new project. I just had to buy this Christmas present from me... to me 
I love this Kim Diehl Simple Christmas Tidings book and the Twinkle Trees table topper pattern. I bought the book and the beautiful fabric kit that the Quilter's Nine Patch store put together because their sample quilt was gorgeous. 



You know you're a quilting addict when a lovely pile of fabric makes you this happy!
If you need me, I'll be in the sewing room... ALL day! Sew happy!

Do stop by the blog tomorrow for the first in a 3 part series about bags.

Kim Diehl has beautiful patterns. The fabrics are going to make a lovely quilt. Looking forward to viewing your progress. I'm enjoying reading your early morning posts while I sip my early morning cup of coffee before heading out to the barn. Happy stitching today!

Have you seen the little poster that says -- "I like to party, and by party I mean stay home and sew". Isn't that hilarious?! But true. Very true.

Lol, I like Kim Deihl, too. I won't be shopping for any fabric today. I only need to go out and find me a New lighted Christmas Tree. The roads are snowy, so I won't be out too early.

Lovely fabrics, I can see why you just had to let it come home with you!

pretty pattern and sometimes others put together such pretty fabric bundles and are so much better at fabric selection than I am

Kim Diehl’s Simple series is a no-brainer when it comes to falling into fabric swoon and caving! Enjoy!

Fabulous fabric and the book looks great. I'm hoping to get busy with some sewing since half my guests have now gone home. I loved having them visit but it was just such a busy holiday.

I have been eyeing her fabric and a book or two for awhile now.

How you keep up with all of your projects always amazes me :)

I need to go GOOGLE "Boxing Day" now :)
