A Great Christmas and some Color Help Needed :)

We had such a wonderful Christmas.  The holiday was spent (and will continue to be spent) with lots of family, just the way I love it!!!  We are so happy to be back home and close to those we love.   For me families are what make Holidays so special.  

So do you want to see some Quilting presents??  My amazing Mother In Law gave me this awesome trio!!!  A little pincushion / thread catcher basket, (which is so perfect because I keep trailing threads all over the house, oops ) a free motion design DVD by Leah Day, and some new quilting gloves!!!!!  Oh my goodness, I am so excited!!!  I can't wait to try out those new gloves and I think I will be watching the DVD before I go start quilting the next little quilt :)

 My amazing Sister In Law designed this little stitch for me.  Isn't it just fabulous!!!  I love it!!!  It is being mounted on the wall next to my sewing machine today.  My Sister In Law and her mother have been making these types of stitches for years and they sell them at boutiques and such. They design all of the pictures, do the stitches and even make the frames.   They also have a great shop online called Live Well Stitches.  I just loved that she designed this for me :) Does my family know me or what?????

And here is where the Color Help comes in.  My husband and I got ourselves a new bedroom set for Christmas.  Yippee Skippee!!!!  This is our first actual bedroom set, it is a deep brown finish and I love it.  And if you are thinking, does that look really high?? The answer is yes, they ordered the wrong box springs so we have to poll vault into bed until the new ones come :)    This bed also happens to be our first king size bed so we have no bedding for it.  The walls are green, obviously leaning more towards a minty color than a sage color.  So . . . . If you were going to be making a king size quilt for this bedroom, what colors or what line would you use???

This week I had so much fun trying something completely new to me.  I put together 2 virtual bees for 2012.  And it was a lot less scary then I thought it would be :)  I can not believe the response that I got from those of you who wanted to "Bee with me."  Thank you so much.  I truly wish I could have created enough groups for everyone, but alas, my sewing time just won't allow it :)  I will be the Bee Mama for the US group and my good friend Cherie took the reins for the International group :)  I can't wait for next year to get going on some blocks :)  And since every good post needs a picture, here is the button that Leah from Burgundy Buttons has made up for the group.  Isn't it just fabulous!!!  She is working on one for the other group and I can't wait to see it :)

So . . . .   What have you tried new this week????  Let's see those links :)
