I want to share this picture with you.  Tari G. sent it to me.  She got busy and made lots of Christmas gifts after attending Craft Day at the Attic Window Quilt Shop last November.  Look at all those snowmen pillows she made!  This is what Tari said in her email to me.  “I did get them finished before Christmas along with four nighties, one doll nightie, three pairs of pajamas, and two robes. I work best under pressure and started these things six days before Xmas. And, I went to a party on Sunday night. I'm crazy.  Chris really outdid herself with this project. I love it (these pillows) and so did the kids.”
Thanks Tari for sharing with us.  I can only imagine the smiles on those kid’s faces.  These pillows are darling!  I'm thinking now is a good time for me to start making some of these pillows to sit under my tree next year.
I did want to tell you there are some new books in at the shop.  These are just a few of the new ones that are in.  They look interesting, don’t they?
Joyful Poinsettias by Crabapple Hill is the pattern for this beautiful quilt that Barb D. made.  You can find the patterns at the shop along with lots of other interesting new patterns.
