Each Man's Life...
"Each man's life touches so many other lives." -Clarence the Angel, It's a Wonderful Life
Thank you so much for your friendship, kindness, and support throughout the year. Until I "met" you, I felt like a lonely "sewing geek". Your passion and skill for this craft keep my inspired and challenged, and now I feel like part of a community. Thank you for helping me share, question, and plan aloud, because your feedback helps move me forward. I'm really looking forward to actually meeting more of you this year, whether it is via your comments and emails, sharing of your blogs, or actually meeting you face-to-face! It's really amazing how the technology of the internet has allowed all of us to come together, sharing laughter and tears, joys and sorrows, even though we are miles and miles apart.
Ok, enough of the mushy stuff... on to the goodies!
In the "Giving Department" this year, I ended up doing far more crafting than I anticipated. All 3 of these projects came up just in the last week, which makes me pat myself on the back a little.
Apparently, the kids with "M" names were pretty naughty this year, as there was a surplus of these stockings at Target, but no "D" stockings were anywhere to be found!? One kid's stocking was all set, but the other one was gonna take a little work.
In the "Receiving Department", I was happy to get a new Kai Rotary Cutter, a pleating board, and a grip handle for my clear ruler. But, I was absolutely thrilled to open this:
A Consew gravity feed iron! I never thought I'd be so happy to get a "domestic appliance" in my life!? Anyone out there who owns one, feel free to drop me an email of tips and tricks of using it, as I am now scared and intimidated by the sheer weight of it!
Merry Christmas to all of you. I'm wishing you a wonderful holiday with loved ones, making new memories, and cherishing the old family traditions.
