The first one is the Winter sampler pack. I'll be working on putting some more together soon! Do you notice my cute new twine? I was soo excited to see Ryan selling them in his Etsy shop when I was searching for some for the holiday toadstools! Such a cute addition to my packages!!
Hope everyone is having a super spectacular Holiday season! We have some family coming into town tomorrow, so I better get back to cleaning. :)

Have you seen these cute little mushrooms, Cathy designed? I fell in love with them when I saw them on her flickr page months ago, and now they are in the cutest book Fa la la la Felt, by Lark books as an ornament pattern.
Amanda Carestio the Author and editorial assistant at Lark emailed me with the pattern since she was my partner for the place mat swap last summer, and thought I would enjoy making them. She also mentioned that I can pass them along to anyone else that would like them since Lark books is giving the holiday toadstools pattern for free. Either you can email me (just leave a comment with your email address), and I can email you one or feel free to use the link to be able to download it yourself.
There are many more fun, and adorable projects in Fa la la la Felt, you can purchase as an ebook for only $14.95. The books will be coming out in August. I have the cute little Christmas trees on my list for sure, and of course love how Cathy made them in red and aqua and to top it off they have cute little mushrooms on them! Can't get any better than that!! :)
Also, make sure to stop on over to Heather blog, as she is having wonderful Christmas giveaway of some fabrics, and some jewelry from Leigh's etsy shop!

I will select a winner December 12, and that winner will be entered to win a desk too (That drawing will be held on December 14 at Rachelle's Writing Spot)!

It is designed with a clear, glass-like top and measures 50 x 25 x 31". The desktop has a good amount of work space, and 4 drawers with partitions for easy organizing - exactly what we all need :)

I enjoyed a little week-end stitching and started a new project for Christmas. I'm planning on making this into a little mini quilt to hang on the wall; I have this one and a few others to do from Annie's Christmas Cute set. I also ordered a couple other sets that I can't wait to get started on. I love how you get a whole set of patterns for one really reasonable price. So many possibilities that you can do many projects with!

I am so excited that I received the cutest little hand stitched piece from Heather yesterday!! It is sooo cute. Heather also sent some cute fabric designed by my sister in law, Tasha. It was so thoughtful of Heather to go out of her way to buy this adorable fabric just for me! THANKS, I love it all!! :)
The adorable hoop already has a new home in my girls room! I thought I'd also take a few additional pictures of a couple other new additions in their room as well. They just love all the new decorating, and I still have a little left to do. :)
The cutest knitted clothes and line I had made!
Our newest vintage irmi lamp.
Hope everyone is have a splendid day!!

The finished size is 13 1/2 inches, and to make the block, I used Ashley's fabulous tutorial. Thanks Ashely, you made it so easy and fun! :)

Second, for the Pillow Talk Swap, I have the lovely Flea Market Fancy, picked out. Not sure if I'll end up using a little of everything. But I think my partner will love what I have in mind. :)
And third, I have a huge mound of collars from all the Munki Munki jammies that will be perfect for a fun and bright string quilt for the Munki Munki Quilt Along. I can't wait to try out Ashely's lovely tutorial. It has been on my list for quite some time. I think the improv blocks I made last month will make nicely into a wall hanging for my sewing room.
These will be such fun projects!! Not to get to work!
