I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends. We have three Christmas celebrations at our house and we have just completed the second one. The third one will be Monday evening.
Here are some of the sewing items I found among my gifts.
I got some small Clover clips. I have had the extra large green ones for awhile and while I love them they are too large for some projects. I can't wait to use them.
I got a bobbin box to prevent thready chaos in my sewing drawer.
I finally own a magnetic seam guide. I have strips of tape marking some seam lines on my sewing machines. They are really hard to see now. Maybe my topstitching will even be straighter. (Look out, Maria!)
There was a gift card to JoAnn's. I'm sure that will be gone fast! How fun!
I, also, got a pair of Gingher dressmaking scissors that are spring loaded. So often with my rheumatoid arthritis, my hands ache from the motion of cutting out fabric. The only motion I have to do is to close the scissors. They pop back open on their own. This will really help to save my hands. I can't wait to cut out my January bag of the month pattern when it comes!
But my best sewing gift by far was to see my youngest grandchildren with their backpacks I made them. They loved them and I think they look adorable with them on. Do they really have to go back to South Carolina??? I will miss them so much. Nothing is better than Christmas through the eyes of a child. It was pure wonderment.
