More Classes, Stash Building, Giveaway Winner, and a Gender Reveal Party


A new baby quilt class at my LQS.  Just getting started on this one.

 
Patrick's Woods Sherri Jones Button Lover's Brag Book Class and my pitiful start.
 
I was asked to share my Gay Ann Rogers E-week stash purchases.  So here they are-

 
Pretty Scissors Sampler-even though I don't do cutwork-nope, not at all.
I'm a weenie when it comes to putting scissors to my work.


Home is Where My Heart Is ornament and the Raj Quartet accessories (even though I didn't buy any of the whitework samplers, oh well)


and last, Three Button Samplers
I thought I was pretty restrained. 
 
But I think I'm having a button fixation right now!


More stash-new Country Sampler kit from Stacy Nash-love this one!


And La-D-Da Pocket for Potions-love the pocket, not so hot on the words.  So this one will get some "revision" :)


Can't remember where I bought this but love the Christmas theme and smalls.


I won a sewing necessaire from Nancy at Victorian Motto Shoppe's giveaway!  It is wonderful, click on the photo to see all the buttons, charms, trims, pins included.   Thank you again, Nancy!
 
Until recently I had never heard of a gender reveal party.  Have you?
 
Well, my daughter who is expecting in March wanted both us and her in-laws to find out the baby's gender all at the same time.  So she had her ultrasound on Wednesday and hosted a pizza party Wed. night.  The dessert was cupcakes and she had a spot of blue color hidden under the icing.  So it's a boy!!
 
She has fulfilled the greatest desire of my grandson who will be 9 when this baby arrives. He has been so loving and good around his two little girl cousins but has been praying every night that God would send a baby boy this time.
 
Please pray for my daughter and her coming little one. She is battling high blood pressure with this pregnancy.

I will definitely keep your daughter in my prayers. That happened to my nephew's wife. The good news is they had a healthy beautiful baby boy! You have lots of great projects going on.

Will be praying for your daughter. Thanks for sharing your Gay Ann purchases. I was very restrained and didn't get anything. But I did sign up for the white work piece...If I was closer, I would hold your hand while you do cut work.
