Merry Christmas!

We are all doing much better today. We all survived yesterday, made it through dinner, etc. :) I got some great presents yesterday. One thing from my mom that I got that I love is a pair of vintage pillowcases with a crocheted edging.


From my SIL I got the 7th and final season of Gilmore Girls. I was so excited about that! I can't wait to start watching it!

My mom got us both these cute Starbucks cups...

My MIL got me a gift card to Jo-Ann's. I got some new 5" Ginghers...

I've found it easier to cut linen with smaller scissors, so that's what I plan to use these for.

I also got this cute little sewing box....

And some threads for a couple of new patterns I got the other day...

Cirque des Circles (jumpin on the band wagon) and Kaleidoscope by Ink Circles. I just love all the colors in Kaleidoscope. It's so different!

Last but not least I also received a package from Mary Kathryn yesterday...

It's the two new thread packs from LHN "Spiced Tea" and CCN "Cottage Garden." I love the colors in these two also! :) I didn't get any stitching done yesterday. I went to bed pretty early and thankfully Matthew let me sleep in until 7:30, which is a miracle! That was a great Christmas present! The boys also had a great Christmas. Click here to see some pictures I took yesterday. Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! I plan on stitching and relaxing and doing nothing today! :) Write later!


  1. Merry Christmas Nicole, all the best to you and your family! Glad to hear you are feeling better. Lovely gifts too :)

  2. I really enjoyed the pictures of the boys. They are really cute!! I love the Gilmore Girls. Your new additions to your stash are lovely.

  3. Happy Christmas Nicole, glad to hear you're all feeling better

  4. I'm so sorry that you all got sick. :( - I'm glad to hear that you are doing better!

    It sounds like you had a lovely Christmas, and you got some beautiful gifts!

    I have a pair of 8" Ginghers for cutting my linen - I don't like to use the 4" scissors for doing that, so I understand about wanting a larger pair.

  5. ohh glad to hear you're all feeling better!
    you gt some awesome gifts...i still cant get over the fact that gilmore girls is over *sniff*

  6. What fabulous gifts! Those pillowcases are beautiful. I'd love to stitch Cirque de Cirque too - someday!

  7. oh man I love that sewing box!!! I've been kicking myself for not getting it when I saw it!
