What I Have Been Up To

Did anybody go to the after-Christmas sales? I did not. I am pretty well stocked for Christmas decorations.

I did go to Joanne Fabrics yesterday because I ran out a particular fabric I need for a new project (see below). While there, I did pick up 10 of these picks.

Who could resist at .17 each?

I started a new project for next Christmas with this fabric:
LOL. I know it's hard to imagine what I one could possibly make with that fabric for Christmas! You can check it out on this page of the quilt blog if you are so inclined.

I also did a table with the cardinal runner I just finished. I used the money plant and the silver-painted branches that I took down from the top of the Christmas tree.

You can read more about it here.

I am busy this afternoon putting something together to wear to a New Year's Eve party I am going to tomorrow. Yes, a bona fide NYE party! I hope I can stay awake until Midnight!


  1. I did not go shopping after Christmas..trying to stay out of the stores. I am afraid I would go for the 'deals' and I am trying to downsize!!! Those sure are cute little things you found at Joanne's..and only 17 cents each??
    Have fun at your New Year's party and a Happy New Year to you!

  2. We had been out to dinner on Sunday and stopped in KMart. It was like they hardly sold anything. They had some fun things including a Jaclyn Smith peacock feather wreath which I wanted by passed up as I was wondering where I would hang it it was only $12.50. I got the little peacock design feather bows for $3 instead and a few other sewing related Cmas items they had.
    I like what you found at JoAnn's. I also love your cardinal centerpiece-perching them on a branch was a sweet idea.
    No parties for us, but my brother wants to have a Super Bowl party to show off his big new tv.
    Happy New Year to you and DH!

  3. no after Christmas sales for me...try to stay away from them...cute little pics...have fun and be safe on NYE
