I wanted to quickly share something wonderful that I received in the mail today. Are you familiar with Marcie Patch - the brains (and major talent) behind Patchalot Quilt Patterns? I met Marcie through blogging, and we have become cyber friends and hopefully will be able to meet in person one of these days. I have always admired Marcie's patterns - it seems that each one is better than the last. You can see them on her website here. She has been published in many magazines and you have probably seen her patterns in some of your favorite quilt shops. I've intended to place an order forever, but frankly, every time I went to her website, I wanted ALL of them! I had a terrible time narrowing it down, but I finally made my decision late last week. And today...this is what Marty the Mail Lady brought me...
Marcie's blog too - she has a darling picture of her little grandson on there, not to mention more great quilts, lots of market pictures and much more.
Ok, I think it's obvious that I have a love for Marcie, I will move on! We have been very busy working on jewelry - I'm sure that many people are buying gifts for their quilty friends - so it has been fun working on that. Here are a couple of new Christmas pieces that we finished.
I also caught up on my NFW blocks awhile back, but didn't ever post the pictures.
Randy should give us a few more this week, but we are almost finished, so I'm not stressing out as much about getting behind.
Are any of you doing Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street Mystery Quilt? I have never participated in a mystery quilt challenge, but I am seriously thinking about starting this one! Someone please talk me out of it. I was having trouble trying to figure out how to change her colors to something more my style. It's just hard, when you have no idea what the pattern is going to look like. But...I looked at some other blogs and got some ideas. I really don't need to start this. Come on...talk me out of it!!!
