CONGRATULATIONS KIMBERLY who posted:
Again Thank you Erica & Betsy for the chance to win wool, and also to get some good laughs!My best tip for Xmas this year is let your son in law put up and decorate the trees!For years the task fell to me. Husband and one or more kids would lug out the trees, and would do the garland...the rest was up to me!This year our new son in law who is an Air Force Pilot asked if he could "help" I think i put two ornaaments on each tree and he spent hours creating a masterpiece! He got a good look at our family traditions and the chance to use up some OCD energy(pilots are perfectionists!) and I didnt get burned out decking the halls!Favorite movie is a toss up Old school me loves White CHristmas ?Holiday Inn. With it mom loves ELF. I have seen it about 9 times and it still cracks me up!My second stress buster is to make sure no matter how crazy my days are to hook each day!Hope everyone is enjoying the anticipation of the big day!

Some ideas for your random comment:
Holiday Stress management tips :)
favorite Holiday or old movie ~ I have a hard time choosing between Christmas in Conneticut and Home Alone
Do you have any funny habbits? ~ I like to keep my candy in the refrigerator, Mom likes to hideout in her car ( its quiet and warm and she gets WIFI for her ipad better in her driveway)
I plan to use it on the back of a quilt for my mother, For Christmas.
Whenever I ask mom what she would use a wool for , She always comes up with things I would never in my wildest imagination think of. So... Of course I just had to use a striped, Pinish colored wool for a cat!
The next couple of photos are of mom's quilt for Christmas.
I used about three of our remnant bags to make it (with the exception of a yard of Chuckles for the border) and still have some leftover to make a pillow and a bag! I haven't backed it yet, That is this weekends project. I apologize for the wrinkles, I had it folded away so the dog wouldn't lay on it :)
OK... The next photos are of my brother christmas quilt. Please don't be offended...
I Used the last bits of Coal Miner's Plaid to make the skull and cross-bone applique. I had a huge smile on my face at every step in making this quilt knowing my brother will love it!
The last image ( That would not rotate , Urgh) Is of one of mom's and mine Favorite magazines by a long shot! The magazine is called Selvedge Magazine and is one of the very , Very few magazines that are worth the subscription price. It Is a U.K publication but if you visit their website and click subscriptions , There is a choice of what country you live in and that will take you to the correct pricing to receive your own copies here in the U.S.. I highly suggest visiting their website by clicking here .
Another good magazine that I enjoy is SEW HIP magazine. It is also a U.K. publication. ( You can find older copies on ebay usually.) It is loaded with fun and hip sewing and crafting projects. It is a really good magazine for people who like funky wearables and interestingly odd/modern projects.
(To me its like a troll doll so ugly that its cute)
