Is there such a thing as blogger spam? I have gotten several comments on my blog that have nothing to do with my posts and appears to be some kind of advertisement. These comments aren't from anyone on the webring. How does this happen? I guess I will check into having to sign in to leave a comment. I don't like that idea because of family that leaves comments that don't have a blog. But....

Christmas trip

Well I am enjoying my only vacation for this year. I am visiting my sister and her family in Lexington, Ky. It's FREEZING up here!!! It was 26 degrees this morning. I have already forgotten what the weather was like last week in Florida when it was in the 80's. But we are having a great time! I am trying to get my Christmas shopping done. However, since I have only been in the quilt store and at Hancock's this week it is difficult to be buying for other people. I hit a great sale at Hancock's today. Sure wish we had one!!! They were having a grand opening sale and when we walked in the store, they handed us a $10 gift card. Everything I bought was on sale 50% off and then we got an extra 10% off. I managed to buy 12.375 yards of fleece and fabric for $51.05. Isn't that great? I am so glad to find this now as I am going on an unofficial no-buy for 2008. I am too chicken to join but I am going to have to try. I have more fabric than I can hold in my small sewing room. In 2008 my goal is to sew more than I buy. This may be more difficult than the usual lose weight resolution! We will see how it goes....Hope that you are enjoying the holiday season!

Birthday Present

Isn't this just the sweetest quilt!!!!! The friend that started me quilting had this fabric. Everytime I saw it, I just drooled. Of course, there was none to be found. She has had it in her stash and she just finished it. I was very excited for her. She found the flannel backing down on a guild bus trip to Rainbow's End. She stopped by the bank to show me all of her current projects. She pulled out this completed quilt. I was oohing and ahhing over it and noticed that she had put a label on the back. I started to read it and about fell over from the shock. My name was on the label!!!!!!!!!!!!! She made this for my birthday. To say that I was surprised in an understatement. It is so beautiful and I just love it!!!! I had no idea. Maybe she gave it to me because I had drooled over it so much. I have it on the back of my couch and me and Bea (my black cat) have already used it. It's warm and wonderful!!!!!
