I had said in an earlier post, that I’d show you some fun things I got at Christmas. This is a clock my parents gave me. It’s the princess and the pea. They used to tease me that I was that princess, since I always needed my bed to be just so in order to sleep. My mom loved the fact that she was sleeping on a bunch of quilts. The pea pod is a pendulum that tick-tocks back and forth. So cute!
This awesome purse was made by my sister last year. She knitted it then felted it. It’s taken me this long to get a lining and straps made. I finished it today and I couldn’t be happier. All my stuff fits in there just perfectly. She’s the best sister ever!
This audio book is one I got from my son, Robert. “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan”, by Lisa See. It’s really good. It’s a lovely story about friendship. I’ve got 1 more cd to go, then it’s finished. I’d recommend it. I love that I could “read” a book while I’m quilting.
I’m going to try to make a piping to put on my Mariners compass quilt. I finally found the special ruler and book that tells me how to do it. Wish me luck.
