Christmas is coming!

 Our gnomes are watching over all the gifts that have arrived from our family.

 But with the gifts she sent, my sister added some gifts for to play with a little early. First was this quilt top. I think she said she won it last year but hasn't done anything with it yet. It's baby quilt size and it came with binding. However, looking through my stash I found 3 fabrics that I could use to add another border. Hmmm... we'll see.

 She also sent along this one that she put together. My son claimed this one by lying on top of it when I laid it down. I let him go through my stash with me and decided to add some other fabrics to it. It is wide enough for a twin but would need to be a little longer to fit his bed. He's pretty excited about it being his... one day.

 She also included this extra fabric from the quilt. Pillowcase?

 A couple more goodies were included. Sarah bought some sock yarn. But it's not really for me. I am suppose to knit her a pair of socks for her birthday in February. She was kind enough to include a pattern too.

Thank you Sarah! I'll get started on your socks in the new year.

  1. Glad everything arrived safely. Yes, the first quilt top I won through Quiltmaker magazine last year. The second one I made to be a masculine quilt, but ran out of steam on it. Glad Nova claimed it - can't wait to see what you do with it. And the sock yarn - yes you are 'supposed' to use the yarn for ME:)!
