The twelfth day of Christmas was observed at Chez Arrow with galette des rois, and now the holiday is officially over...sniff sniff...yesterday I started putting away ornaments and cards, wahh! I always feel a little sad when I take down the decorations. It was just a few weeks ago when I was happily trimming the tree...*sigh*
But I shouldn't complain with all the holiday loot to enjoy. Crafty presents included a beautiful quilted bag made by Dan's mother...isn't it lovely?
Gorgeous ginko fabrics
And some sewing books I've been wanting: In Stitches and Sew U, which hopefully will help improve my sewing skills. The cupcake book will come in handy for trial runs for Joanne's wedding cupcakes...hmm, what flavor to try first? And then there is the big, beautiful skein of hand-dyed silk yarn...mmm...
Crafty books & yarn
So it's time to look forward into 2007 with new crafty goodness. Kelli is hosting an In Stitches sew-along, so I should crack open the book and get started!
