Oh boy the mail person was nice to me today! I had won a little prize from Amber Johnson of A Little Bit Biased who is starting her new pattern company called Gigi’s Thimbles and today it arrived. It was more than I thought. She sent not one but, 4 patterns and a Bliss Layer cake! I am so excited and can’t wait to break into them all, but first I must eat then take a shower…then the evening is mine to explore my treasures. I love all this patterns but I think the bird house is probably my favorite at the moment and would look great done in Bliss!
I also ordered the cutest pattern from Cath’s Pennies Design. It is a Christmas cookie pattern and hers looked so great that I ordered the whole kit. It’ll be fun to start on something for the holidays. These are all made from felt. I haven’t done much with felt before so it will be fun to try something new. Too bad I have to work the next few days at my paying job or I would just be sewing away the hours.
You must go to Cath’s blog post about this pattern to really get the true effect. She has a plate of cookies on the mat that look so much like the real thing but are actually ornaments. I am thinking they will be fun to put on packages.
Sew many new projects to work on…I’m a happy girl!
