Looking forward to my subscritpion of Simply Vintage magazine to get to my house. I hope it's soon. It looks absolutely adorable. I just got a thank you card and gift from the publishers to thank me for my subscription. How classy is that :) They sent me a box of Tulip Hiroshima applique needles. I almost bought them at a local quilt shop. Glad I didn't waste my money now :) Working on a lot of Christmas stuff but I can't post pictures now. Will have to wait until after Christmas so as not to ruin any surprises. Some of my friends are also my blog followers. Hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful time! Waiting for the carpet guys to get here today to carpet two rooms and then this weekend kicking into high gear to get ready for Christmas and company! I hope it's a white one :)
We went to my sister in law's for Thanksgiving. She brought out a quilt that I made her. I have no memory at all of making it. :) That was before I had a blog and I never was very good at keeping track of what I gave away. Honestly she could have told me she found it at a second hand store and I would not have been any wiser but I did put a label on the back. Apparently I made it for her immediately after the first attack on U.S. soil by savage Islamic extremists on 9-11-2001. I do remember making these patriotic Christmas decorations days after the attack on the World Trade Center. Here's the link to those:
I can't believe my nephew still has the baseball quilt I made him back in 2003. It's held up really well over the years and was one of the first I did when I first got my Gammill longarm machine. Now he's serving in the Army doing what he can to keep us safe from deranged Islamic killers.
