If you live in Central Ohio, this might interest you. Otherwise…you can move on! LOL I know several of my students follow my blog and I just wanted to announce that the Open House is set for Sat. Jan. 2 from 10 AM to 1 PM. My Kquilts Studio website has all the details of the classes being offered this season. I have several classes for different levels of quilters (beginners included). I have 4 PJ parties planned (which are on Friday nights and are FREE!). They are simple little projects that can be done in an evening …..BUT you must wear PJ’s! Or you will be fined $5. Lots of fun! A POWER retreat is also in the works. And I have one more surprise which won’t be revealed until Preview Day. So…….come join us!

I'm in a sorority and we exchange names for Secret Sisters at Christmas and I drew the name of one of my best friends, who is a fairly new quilter. What fun I had with her gift! I based it on the Twelve Days of Christmas.
On the first day of Christmas, Joy's sister gave to her:
A quilted purse for Joy----no picture :(
two quilting notions
3rd day of Christmas…….three quilting patterns (again, no picture)
4 spools of thread
on the 5th day of Christmas……..
5 Fat Quarters
on the 6th day of Christmas…
a 6” ruler (sorry for the lousy picture, it’s hard to take a good one of shiny acrylic!)
on the 7th day of Christmas…..
7 Christmas candies
on the 8th day of Christmas…
8” Gingher Scissors
on the 9th day of Christmas…
9 feet of ribbon
on the 10th day of Christmas….
10 sewing needles
on the 11th day of Christmas…
11 Quilting tips
on the 12th day of Christmas….
12 Christmas buttons
(and I’m not sure if it’s the picture, or did I really sew on the bottom button crooked? You’d thought I would have seen that! It MUST be the picture!)

I wish I could say this is from me, but it's from Amazon....FREE music! Here's one of the several that I downloaded. I love Point of Grace and I love their rendition of Winter Wonderland.
My favorite Christmas hymn is O Holy Night sung by Aaron Neville. But Winter Wonderland ranks up there in Christmas music. I downloaded almost 300 Christmas songs on my itouch before vacation. (most were of my own CD collection and several of the free downloads). My hubby can't believe that I can listen to Christmas music ALL day long! And I can. BUT only after Thanksgiving and I'll quit the day after Christmas. So, what's your favorite Christmas songs?
hurry to http://www.amazon.com/ and then type in free MP3 music downloads under the search bar. (for some reason, it would not let me copy the link). You can narrow down the search to free Christmas music MP3 downloads as well. If you have never downloaded MP3's from Amazon, you'll have to download the FREE MP3 downloader onto your computer first, but it doesn't take long and well worth the few extra minutes! Thanks to Heather at Freebies4Mom for the tip.
And that's ANOTHER blog you should go visit AND sign up for her daily emails. She is LOADED with all kinds of tips to get FREE stuff!! Already this month, I've gotten free calendars, a free photo book, free Christmas photo cards, free music and a whole lot more. I kept forwarding her emails to my daughters so much, they went and signed up themselves. I just LOVE free stuff, don't you?
