There is one other big thing that has happened here lately.
The Kate Spain Christmas Charm Swap has been completed.
Just look at all these gorgeous charms the participants received!
There were a number of packages that arrived late so sending these out got delayed a bit. One package actually went MIA and never arrived at all. The participants were willing to wait a little longer to see if it showed up (which it still hasn't to this day). The person that sent them chose to purchase more fabrics and on my suggestion had them shipped directly to me. Once I got them in my hands and cut them for her, all of the packages where quickly stuffed and sent on their way.
Even with the few problems there were getting this swap done, I'm so glad that I did it. There is no other way I would have ever been able to get such a pretty variety of Kate's Christmas lines to turn into a holiday quilt for myself.
I thought I knew exactly what pattern I was going to use for my charms but I took it out recently and now am second guessing my decision. I'm on the hunt for a new idea though I still might go back to my original plan.
Thank you to all those who participated and thank you for your understanding during the delay. I hope you love your charms and I can't wait to see what you create with them so please share when you do.
