the week after Christmas

We have all had a very enjoyable Christmas here in our house, with friends and family some visiting and of course some good meals shared with them all.
Next week will bring in the new year ... new beginnings ,new projects, and new opportunities for us all. I do wish all the best to you all for 2013.
I would like to share with you a very special gift sent to me from Sheila from Sheila's Quilt World. We have become friends over the last couple of years through the land of blog and have had the gift of meeting last summer.

She has made me this lovely penny rug stitchery for Christmas this year I love the phrase on it
" All Hearts Come Home for Christmas" which is sew true as if  you can not make it home you often connect with those at home on Christmas. Thank you sew very much.

This is a little item made for the Holidays as a gift, the colors are more burgundy than purple but that is just how the camera picked it up. And of course there is a little fabric left over and another project waiting I am sure.

I did manage to get my 2012 FMQ challenge done a put together a little slide show ..... a learning curve for me but I had some great help with my dd. Now to put what I have learned with the FMQing into practice with a few of the quilts waiting to be quilted.  A new list for 2013 I am sure.

The weather is starting to warm up a little and the sun is shining, sew it will be nice and bright outside today.....perfect for a walk. WE have had a lot of fog sew the trees have been all deck out with frost ...just picture perfect ...except I did not get any taken.

I hope to get a little sewing done today as well...
I want to get a start on my next blog hop items as well as getting the backing ready for our son's quilt.
Sew that's all for now.... off to sew a little
in stitches
and Happy New Year
