Christmas Loot

I am a bit behind on posting all my Christmas loot from this year...boy did I score! First my sweet hubs bought me a Kaffe Fassett fat quarter bundle in water for our anniversary on Dec. 2...then both the men in my life (dh and ds) decided to get me the fire bundle for Christmas! Am I lucky or what! Then my middle daughter gave me seasons 1, 2 and pre-ordered season 3 (which will be mailed to me in Jan. 2013) of Downton Abbey! I love this show and have been watching it to my delight!

Then my three lovely children also gave me CSI Miami seasons 3,4,5...I love this show and have been watching it as well...
 Lovely eldest daughter gave me this peacock candle light, which I absolutely adore! She had at home parties when she lived in Atlanta, I so wanted one of these back in the summer but they were out of my budget...hehehe, she has had this for me since I raved about the one she uses in her shows..this pic does not do it justice...the colors are iridescent and they remind you of a peacock...now to find the perfect candle.

 My hubs also gave me this new camera that I really needed as well...

 Now the loom is a gift to myself as I am hopeless at knitting and I thought maybe I could knit some socks on one of the looms...we will see...
Next are some books that I have wanted for a while that was in my stocking as well...the silk ribbon book is filled will fabulous flowers that will look great on my crazy quilts...the other flower book is for using with special tools to make lifelike milliner flowers...


 This book is filled will beautiful work and information on finding the right materials to work with...also has some patterns to try.
 The next two books I wanted so I could learn how to stitch the birds and make realistic feathers...those birds are absolutely charming...a quick scan through of the books shows they are chock full of great information for beginner stitchers to advanced stitchers...


 And of course I have tons of stuff that I received that I won't be putting on here...all in all I was very spoiled by those who love and know me...most importantly we were able as a family to spend time together with each other and celebrate another Christmas with both parents...
