My Happy Spot + Winners

>> Sunday, December 18, 2011

One of my current happy places in my house is right next to my sewing machine. I'm not sewing much right now, but I do get to walk by and glance at some of my favourite things more than once a day.

Do you see my new mug?! Time will tell if any more will come my way next year;)
The snowman is holding up a sweet load of peppermints sent to me by a quilty friend in the U.S.. Both of my kids LOVE them - I may have to put them in a higher safe place.

Hello Kitty is punched out of a Happy Meal box. I admit it. I have a little 'thing' for the kitty right now!

The card made by my son out of leftover half square triangles.
The 'note' out front in yellow writing is a train ticket from him. There's always an adventure going on in his little world.

My "S" box from my sis full of safety pins again - because I AM DONE quilting my son's quilt for Christmas. Just need to finish the binding. Hopefully later today and tomorrow.

My pincushion sitting atop an early gift from my mother in law.
 A magnetic bowl. It was great for slipping my pins onto it as I finished quilting. It's so strong that the bobbins in the top drawer were drawn to it! 
Miss Kitty approves:)

Behind the bowl?

A wooden pencil box that I've had forever and am now using to store my bobbins!

There was a brief discussion over at Pat Sloan's Quilt Mashup Forum about bobbin storage and I was disappointed in not finding a plastic magic cure when I went to Walmart last weekend. It really made me look around at what I already had and I found this old treasure. 

It will fit two rows of bobbins. It should be useful for a very long time!

On to the Winners!

I asked my DH to pick three numbers and here are the winners and their comments about making for the holiday season.

Mary C replied
I like to make cookies and candy for our neighbors and friends. I spend a couple of days creating, plating and delivering the homemade gifts. 

Dix replied
I like to make stocking stuffers in crochet or knitting. 

and Michell replied
I have made a couple of table runners before, but i like making coaster as they are so fast to make

With Joy,
