Christmas is in the rear view mirror now. I love this week after Christmas! The kids are still here and we are enjoying family time and relaxing together (with a side order of planning a nursery for the new little one that is on the way!). Emily is trying to get a cold so instead of shopping for cribs and rocking chairs we are staying in today..fine with me! I chance get in touch with my blog friends.
The holidays are a time of family and celebrations, with so many wonderful blessings from 2011 …we look forward to an even more fabulous 2012!  I’m so excited I can hardly stand myself. First the arrival of our first Grandchild. Just typing those words brings tears of joy and anticipation! 
Then there are the toooo many to count reasons for joy here at Silver Thimble World Headquarters.. My club HAS A NEW HOME! We will be holding our regular monthly meetings at my church Saint John Neumann.  The facilities are a dream come true and the church is welcoming this fabulous group of quilters with OPEN ARMS.  We begin our meetings at the new facility in February! I can’t wait!!!! We have been together for 8 years and we continue to grow and welcome new members. Whata group.
Then there are so many things to share from my design studio (which is really a sewing room… lets not get over done with this!) with the additions of projects that I am collaborating on with some friends, a new web site! wheww..this is still a work in progress but the new site is live now.  I’m going to be adding tutorials and kits and goodies as fast as possible so stay tuned. 
Here are a few moments to remember from our holidays.
Who doesn’t love a good Gingerbread House? Break me off a piece of that one!!!
And the fashion of the day..le chapeau…our tiny  Christmas hat. What fun! Julie chose the happiest gift of Christmas!
