I have also been shopping for my family for Christmas and in the process, came across a few things that you might need in your lives.
1. Patchwork Board Game - Did you know that there is a quilting board game? And it is well reviewed and is supposed to be fun for quilters and non-quilters? This one is going under our tree this year.
An "investment" ruler - These are one of those things that are too expensive to justify buying on a normal day, but they are super useful so they make a great gift. This is one of my favorites and I use it All. The. Time.
4. A Nice Ironing Board - I have given up on expensive irons because it seems like all irons break, no matter how expensive they are. But an ironing board that I don't easily knock over and that I don't mind ironing on is worth some money.
5. An Instant Pot - Technically this doesn't have anything to do with sewing, but if you are spending less time making dinner, you have more time to sew. I got one of these on Black Friday and have already used it a few times a week.
I hope you all have a happy holiday! Hopefully I will have at least one project to share before the end of the year and I should have my sewing room ready to share soon too. Thanks for all of your support and kind words over this last crazy year. I would have never guessed at the beginning of 2016 that I would be living in Oregon by the end of the year, but we are so happy to be here.
