How was your Christmas? Did people love the gifts that you gave them? Did you get the things that you had been hoping for?
I asked for Jo-Ann gift cards, and it appears that people listened! From a couple of friends at work to my husband to relatives on both sides of the family, almost everybody got me gift cards! Will you look at this pile!
*** Arghhh! Why does Blogger insist on flipping my images sideways? :( ***
Anyways, I'm going to have to take my sleeping bag to Jo-Ann's and camp out there for a few days of shopping! These cards are likely to last me for months and months! I am so happy and excited! :)
But those weren't my only sewing-related gifts. Another friend from work got me this book:
There are a lot of fun looking projects in here! I foresee a wealth of Christmas projects from this book in my future! ;)
Finally, Ana completely surprised me by picking out a pattern, fabric and notions for me:
Is that gorgeous, or what? And, most of all - is that ME, or what?!?! There's no better test of how well you know someone than whether or not you can pick out a pattern and fabric that will make them happy, and you can tell that Ana knows me very, very well! :)
So, those are my favorite Christmas gifts this year. What about you? What are YOUR favorite Christmas gifts this year?
Regardless of the gifts, I hope that everyone had a wonderful time sharing food and memories and laughter with their friends and family. And that you are all looking forward to the wonderful things that 2012 has in store for us! :)
