Thanks for playing along the Henry Glass Naughty or Nice Holiday Party. I hope that it was a good distraction for you. It seems that Christmas just blasted me in the face. I can't believe that Christmas is going to be next week. Seems surreal.
I wrote about my crazy busy year this past year and suddenly a few people wrote to me thinking that I hadn't done anything creative. Oh, don't get me wrong, I just didn't have my ducks in a row enough to commit the art to the outside world. It is at the top of my list for the next few weeks.
Meanwhile, I received a couple of tear sheets from magazines this week. "Sew Merry and Bright" got some British press. The first magazine was Sew Magazine and they featured a couple of my ornaments in this issue.
I love that reindeer on the cover. Must. Make. From the two covers that I have received, it seems that the turquoise blue and red combination is popular for the holidays. I love it. Do you have a favorite color combination for holiday decor?
"Oh Nuts" made it into the magazine. I have to say that he's one of my favorites. Have you ever made an ornament? They're so easy and gratifying for that very reason. Working with real wool felt is a treat and I love to add a little "bling" when you add beads.
Before I forget, Lil' A picked the winner for a copy of my book "Sew Merry and Bright." [He's the real boss around here.] Drum roll please ...

I am planning to take time to learn to free motion quilt. I have signed up for a class on Craftsy and have not had the time to really watch it yet but I am going to make time for it as soon as we get past the holidays.
Please e-mail me your details here. You have until Friday to claim your prize otherwise you will forfeit your prize and Big A will pick another name for me.
Enjoy the last full week of crazy holiday preparations.
