Are you an AQS member? Did you get the latest American Quilter magazine, January 2022? Check out page 15 for fabulous Finds….I’m so excited Hex-a-Mini is a featured FIND!!! WooHoo! See the page below with a closeup of the write up!
You can order Hex-a-Mini on my website HERE. If you are in need of a Christmas present, what about making placemats using Hex-a-Mini to make these Pyramid Trees? The trees layout is included in the instruction booklet!
Speaking of my website…Please get your online orders in before Friday if you want them shipped before the New Year. I’ll be taking a break for Christmas <grin> and shipping will be delayed until the new year.
On a Brilliant Bindings note, I had some tools stored at my parent’s house. I requested they send them to me for some orders. (no worries, more tools are being manufactured and will arrive after the first of the year) So to my surprise, this is how they arrived carefully packed in a box inside the shipping box. I love my Dad, such care and ingenuity to keep the edges protected. We peel the paper from one side of the tool, as this is how they arrive from the manufacture, before we package each one with their cover and directions. Loving care every step of the way!
My Two Tips for today are on a personal note….
1 – Have fun shopping and getting ready for Christmas! Be safe out there! Remember a kind smile is always welcome….your eyes can smile behind a mask.
2 – Take time to look at the lights, hear the music and share a drink with a friend.
My favorite recipe this time of year is Spiced Tea… Great to make and give as gifts!
- 1 cup Tang
- 1/2 cup instant Lemonade mix
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 1/2 cups instant Tea mix with lemon
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon cloves
- Combine all ingredients. Measure 1 cup into zip plastic bag. Makes 4+ gift bags. Add directions on a gift card. Add 2 tablespoons of Spiced Tea mix to 1 cup of hot water. Enjoy!
