Merry musings

Here's another view of Toby in his Christmas pajamas:

He surprised us all by not trying to wriggle his way out of them.  The green patch on his hind end says "Santa's Helper".

Santa must have had a little help in choosing a gift for me.  He gave me some gorgeous half yard cuts of citrus-ey gold batiks.

The pink banded fabrics on the right were from Santa, and the ones on the left were pulled from my stash.  I already have a plan for what I want to do with these.  I have a pattern called "Harvest" which will showcase them nicely, I think.

My other quilty gift this year was from my quilter friend, Rosemary who surprised me with this cute charmpack of Coquette from Moda and a pattern for a charming tote/purse.

The day after Christmas, I enjoyed having the chance to finish the hotpads that I gave to my daughter.

After a whirlwind of Christmas deadlines, I really have to clean up the sewing room before I can start anything new.  Here is a photo of what happens when you have lots of projects going on at once.

This is what I affectionately refer to as "craftermath".   

Craftermath is the  resulting and overwhelming mess that is left lying all about after a full day, week, or month of creative pursuits. Massive amounts of creative supplies jumbled and piled all together, all about ones workspace, making it impossible to continue crafting until cleaned and possibly preventing any inspiration whatsoever.

Now that I've defined it, I have to go and do something about it.
