Show and tell…

Sue Kersey sent me this photo of her Christmas Delivery quilt. I love the way she embellished it!

I got pieces of the pattern from a friend as she found it at a garage sale. So I did the best I could figure out and made it into a small Christmas quilt this last year during the pandemic. I thought it might be yours but it was not marked and I would love to know what it is called. Was it a book, just a pattern or I think you said it was a download?

To answer Sue’s questions, Christmas Delivery was never in a book. It has always been a downloadable pattern (click here to find it). I made mine into a pillow but, as you can see, it makes a wonderful wall quilt! Thank you, Sue, for sharing it with all of us :-).

Wednesday Giveaway

Kerri is this week’s luck winner and she will receive a set of Yazzii Craft pouches. I love all things Yazzii because they are so very functional while being pretty, and totally useful. These handy dandy zip pouches are constructed in the same way as the pouches that come inside other Yazzii Organizers. Use them with other organizers or on their own. I love them! The set includes 3 sizes of pouches: 7″ x 7″, 6″ x 6″, and 5″ x 5″.

Mystery needles…

Kristina asked me to talk about needles in Time Out and that’s what I did yesterday, May 19. Here it is, in case you missed it. (If there is something you would like me to talk about in time out, send me an email.

Martha Bigley commented to remind me that the needles shown in the Needle Guide are life-size. That is really helpful and I wish I had mentioned that in the video. I will add, though, that needles vary in thickness and length from company to company which means that your mystery needles may not match those in the guide. But it definitely does point you in the right direction!
