I wasn't expecting to write anything more this year, but the postman's just knocked at the door with a lovely box for me, my PIF gifts from Amy. There's some fabric, a lovely heart decoration and a really fun little quilt that's made from a panel designed just for quilters. There are also three patterns; one for a dinky little applique wall hanging and cushions (I'll have to get some thirties style fabric for those); Time for Tea, with a whole range of themed goodies to make; and a wonderful waistcoat pattern, which is going straight to the top of my list. I love to wear waistcoats, they hid all sorts of lumps and bumps! And last of all, Amy must have read my mind. Christopher does the hoovering in our house, and I've been feeling rather guilty about the amount of thread I drop on the floor. So I've been wondering where I'd seen a pattern for these oh so useful thread catchers - and lo and behold, there's one in the box. We both thank you for this one Amy!
Thank you so much Amy, both for getting me involved in this project and for sending me such a wonderful post-Christmas pick-me-up.
