If music be the food of love, play on,...

Once again Friday is coming a couple of days late here (I'm sure I'm always a few days behind...), thanks to some technical problems (blogger and pictures! =S) and the fact that once again I have spent an entire weeked doing moving house things - The boy and I, along with some other family members, have spent the past two days doing some tidying of his mother's house in preparation for sale.

Anyway, this gratitude Friday I wanted to share a few Christmas presents I received which are sure to help make my 2007 a little more crafty =)

From my parents there were these quilting goodies - a cutting mat and a quilt kit!!!!!

The finished quilt will be 150cm x 183cm (59" x 72"), and the fabrics are beautiful autumny kinds of colours, from the moda Country Paths line of fabrics.

Pretty much everything I need is included - precut charm squares, binding, bordering and backing fabrics and instructions.

Needless to say I am tres excited to get started on this!

My Christmas of craftyness was rounded out by a little bit of sillyness - Beauzo and Kit bought me the Museum of Kitschy Stitches: A Gallery of Notorious Knits by Stitchy McYarnpants (who also blogs here).

Check this book out - it is hilarious!

Perhaps it's a hint that the boys would like matching hand-knit ties? =) hehe

My sister remembered me having had the Stitch n Bitch books with me last time I visited, and picked up the Stitch n Bitch page-a-day calendar - its fab!!!

Each day of the week is dedicated to a particular type of yarny information - yarns, websites, tips, and on Fridays there is even a pattern to work on over the weekend! =)

This weekend has also (sadly) seen the packing away of Christmas, with Friday being the Twelfth Night and Saturday the Feast of the Epiphany, but with these goodies Christmas will keep me crafting well into the New Year!!



But that's all one, our play is done,
And we'll strive to please you every day.
