Merry Christmas!

I know a day late and a dollar (or few) short….but I have to share all my spoils because I have great friends and awsome new gifts.

First and far mostest is my awsome new digital camera —and it has a shutter button too 🙂

It’s a Fuji Finepix J38 and I love it.  It does panoramic pictures too!  I have to play more with that feature but I’ve been taking lots of “make-up” images of my quilting things and gifts.

I participated in a quickie Christmas Swap through Pat Sloan’s group and my swap partner was Ms. Nancy.   I wasn’t able to take pictures of what I sent her, but I opened her present to me on Christmas morning and found wonderful surprises.  Inside her package was a beautiful table runner, a snowman embroidered card, some godiva chocolate, 2 fat quarters and the coolest new ornament—a pirate santa!  I now have 2, looks like a new thing I will be collecting:

Then from my friend Betsy in Florida, she sent me this AWSOME Catherdral Windows…..I already have it hanging and it will remain hanging in my sewing area:

I didn’t get a lot of quilty things from family and close friends….they know I just get what I want at work, so I got some great useful items, like a new frying pan, a covered ice scraper, stationary with my name, lotion and chocolate.  One other gift my hubby and I got together for us was a single cup coffee maker, Keurig.  OMG….we love it love it.  (Thanks to Jane getting me hooked on one)  We are probably drinking way too much coffee the past 2 days, but it’s fun to try the variety of flavors.

Well, now I’ve got a new camera I am going to pre-post for this week.  I have lots of new pictures to share and organinzing my sewing studio to set myself on weekly goals this coming year.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, blessed with family and friends and love.  I know I’m grateful for all you who participate in my blog and make me feel special.
