 Ok, so how could I resist a birthday party for my LQS? We were bribed with coffee, tea, cake & cookies! And SALES! So, I caved when I saw some paisley prints by Moda. Different lines, but I LOVE paisley!

While I am not an embroidery type person, Shell from over at Shell's Blog  posted this cute book, Doodle Stitching that I had to have. So, a PINK hoop and a starter pack of embroidery thread were needed to put my embroidery scissors that Santa brought me to good use. ;o) I might even jump in on the LMS | Birdie Stitches Quilt Along!!! SO... definite goals this year will be trying my hands at embroidery and small wood working skills.
My mom gave me a couple of after-Christmas gifts... I love project books! She gave me Pretty Little Mini Quilts, and Craft Challenge: Dozens of Ways to Repurpose a Pillowcase. Love them both!

Lastly, while thrift shopping with my Retail Therapy partner, I came across this vintage Quilters Newsletter. Why couldn't I resist it without even looking inside? Because it is dated the year and month of my birth! How cool is that!?!?
It has been a crazy busy week here with nothing else to do but shop while the maintenance guys tear up the attic here. Thanks for letting me share! :o) Happy stitching!

What a fun post! I'm so excited that you got doodle stitching... Do you like it? Oh I do hope so - LMS's sew along looks so cute and I am still lusting after your scissors.

The books from your mom look great - I love the look of the pillowcase one - those dresses look so sweet - how I wish I had been into sewing when my daughter was little - she's almost 11 now and nearly as tall as me!
