Today I got a wonderful package from a swap on our primitive quilt group. We went with a pouch this year and I was definitely spoiled by Jeni of The Willow. Jeni is one of the girls behind the new magazine, Primitive Quilts and Projects, my favorite magazine and the only one I subscribe to. There is always a few things I want to do in each issue and even if I only do two, I am still getting my money's worth in patterns and still lots of patterns I haven't had time to do, so it is a nice treasury of projects for the future.
As you can see, Jeni made me a lot of beautiful prim items. I love the bag and not only did she make the ornaments, she made up kits so I can make my own, so I have something to start for next years's gifts;) The kitty pattern is a punch needle penny rug and I had loved that when I saw it, she must have read my mind. I can't say enough, how much I love my goodies.
And the wonderful thing is, you can make your own gingerbread man with the free pattern from Primitive Quilts and Projects!
I also received some beautful Christmas cards with a gift inside. Nancy of Tom Miner Quilts and Folk Art, sent me a beautiful woolie ornament to hang on my prim tree. I love it and I love prim ornies that I can hang on the small trees. Mary of Quilt Hollow sent me a beautiful mug mat, the photo does not do it justice, her stitching is beautiful, I would hate to ruin it with spilled tea.
I also wanted to let you know about a contest being held by This-n-That fabrics. If you recall, I entered the fall challenge with my Gourdy's gang and won second place. Now you can enter their Christmas challenge by submitting your christmas quilts and wall hangings. There is no reason not to and you get a chance at winning a gift certificate. I would really love to see my followers enter the contest and win a wonderful prize, so visit their blog and submit your Christmas entry.
