Christmas Stash Enhancement

Christmas usually ends with more fabric and accessories being added to my stash.  This year was no exception. We’ll start off with the prettiest bundle ever!This Cotton + Steel Basics 40 piece fat quarter bundle is so versatile.  It’s even got metallic accents on some of the pieces.  And it’s super pretty and I love looking at it.  It will be put to great use throughout the next year.

The rest of my sewing presents included a bunch of notions:  blades, rulers, and other accessories that will be very useful.I also got a box of Aurifil thread from the Basics collection.  My Singer machine seems to like it better than what I normally use.  I’ll need to put that thought to the test soon.

A Project Bag:

Before all that gift getting happened, I put together this last minute gift for my mom.  A project bag for her cross-stitch or knitting projects.  I found the pattern here on Craftsy.  It’s a bit larger than I had anticipated – I made the Medium size – so I may also make her a few smaller ones for her upcoming birthday in February.Christmas was big success.  Especially on the ‘giving’ side of it, which is my favorite part.

New year is coming up with plenty of new projects on the horizon where all those new notions will be put to use.

Happy Sewing!  I’ll just leave you with this awesome sign I got from my mom.
