There was still snow on the ground in Rutherford County, so we had a sort of white Christmas...
and we had clear weather, and look at this gorgeous sunset reflected in the backyard pool.
My family has discovered the Amazon Wish List, which is a wonderful thing. You can add items from any website to your wish list. So, among my gifts, I found a subscription to Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine, and two wonderful quilt books.
I have been collecting lots of tools and materials for painting and stamping fabric, but did not always know what to do with them. I love this book because she names the actual products she uses, where you can get it, and refers back to the page with the instructions when she shows a project with that technique. Finally, I am going to use my Creative Textile Tool for some hot stamping and cutting! I stopped at Mary Jo's Cloth Store, AKA Mecca, on the way home and added lots of nice new things to play with. Will show that stuff in another post.
