Christmas Goodies for Me

 It was a good Christmas in the creative realm for me.
I added these to my list because I've always wanted to try some.  I confess I was skeptical, but I've been pleasantly surprised by these.  I'll show you a finish I used these on in a couple days.
 It's always hard to spend the money on these, so its nice to get them as a gift.
 I put the bobbins on the list with the intention of carrying it around for hand work.
 Yay!  A couple of new books for new projects.  I seem to have amassed a few jelly rolls that I'd like to use up and I'm looking forward to trying some structured bags.
 My SIL bought me some fabric at a Pottery Barn store.  Apparently they make exclusive fabric.  I feel lucky to have some!
 And the king!  Mr. Riley bought be a new Rowenta!  My other one has been on the fritz, which Mr. Riley has fixed a couple of times.  He said he got this one 'because it looked like a phaser'.  It is so pretty, and irons beautifully.  I had my first Rowenta for about 15 years, so I have high hopes for this one! (I think I should have gotten a new ironing board cover as well!)

Wow, I didn't know Pottery Barn sold fabric! I wonder if you could use some of it for the Radiant Orchid quilt challenge over at the Play Crafts blog.

I like those gloves but I really like the Machingers better.
That fabric looks luscious.

Love the Iron! And it does look like a phaser! My DH would think the same thing! The fabric is beautiful. I need to check out Pottery Barn.
