I am still sewing although I am losing track of who I am sewing for. I've been using my stash of 5" squares to make table runners -- I have several "charm packs" in my cupboard that I haven't gotten around to using, and I am trying to work my way through those neglected fabrics. I have potential runners laid out on the floors of my house and when I have a spare hour I stitch them together and add them to the pile. I figure if I am invited to any more holiday dinners, I can take one along as a hostess gift since I am accumulating quite a supply of them!
The Peach Patch, and received a lovely group of fat quarters that I immediately turned into another purse. It was so much fun -- I received fabric that I don't think I ever would have chosen, and I absolutely loved the result. If I ever get to the point where I can justify buying fabric again, I will make some different choices! (Okay, we know that part about not buying more fabric was a lie, since my internet shopping carts are always full and JoAnn thinks I am part of her immediate family since I am there so often!)
As I've mentioned before, I am an amateur radio operator and this year, when I renewed my tabs, I finally indulged myself by applying for a license plate with my call sign on it -- finally, I have a license plate that I can memorize!
