A Sweet Reason To Post

Quiet? Yes, I have been very quiet and this is probably because I have done very little stitching.

Yesterday Edgar gave me a truly SWEET reason to blog.  I received an unexpected package in the mail that I anxiously opened.  I am not signed up for any exchanges and I had not made any recent online purchases so I could not imagine what this package held.  When I opened it and read the card I immediately said to my DH, "Edgar is so sweet!"  He sent me the most delicious chocolate covered cherries, a jar of Peach Jam that I am sure is delicious, and white chocolate candy filled with dried cranberries and nuts...SWEET.  With every bite, my brain screamed FABULOUS!


Thank you Edgar for being so thoughtful.  You made my day that much sweeter and put a much needed smile on my face! :D

So, what has kept me busy these days? A little bit of this and a little bit of that.  I have decorated my house for the holiday starting with this new wreath for the door.


The mantel is decorated with my small collection of Byers Choice Carolers...


Here is a closer look:


I will save the other pictures for another post.

Lastly, I have been busy rearranging my sewing room in preparation for the arrival of my newly purchased Koala Sewing center.  I purchased this at the International Quilt Festival in October and can hardly wait until it is delivered this month.  I am keeping my fingers crossed that they will be able to maneuver the 400-pound table up my curved stairway.

For now my sewing room is a MESS and I must get up there and work on organizing all of my "stuff"


Until next time...

A very sweet gift from Edgar, and I love your new wreath. But I love the most is your new sewing table. I hope that it arrives quickly and you can have your room totally set up and ready to go!!

Wow, Santa is spoiling you big-time with that new sewing center. I hope it will bring you many hours of enjoyment.

Enjoy your sweets from Edgar.

I love Edgar and his sweet treats! We enjoyed some here earlier this week too ;)
AND I am totally, completely and sincerely jealous of your Koala center...phooey on you! (but in a really GOOD way) You rock and you will rock that center!

And I'm going out on a limb here...but I think another surprise will come to your door today....hmmm....
