Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a fun, and safe New Year's Eve/Day celebration. I had my New Year's Day black eyed peas and cabbage. Do you have a traditional New Year's meal?
I wanted to take a moment to show you what my sister DeAnna, who blogs at Georgia-Girl Quilter, made for my Mom, sisters, sister-in-law, and myself for Christmas. My dear father passed away in 2012 and DeAnna and I shared his cotton shirts to make a quilt. Since she is in Georgia and I am in Arkansas, we weren't able to split the shirts between us until our Fall sewing retreat. (You can read about our Fall sewing retreat Part 1 and Part 2.) DeAnna took the shirts and gifted everyone with pillows. It's such a special gift idea, I wanted to show you.
My Dad liked to wear hats and caps, so it seemed appropriate to take photos of the pillow and his hats together.

I took one photo with each hat because I couldn't leave any out!
My sister, DeAnna, also gifted me with this awesome sign that she designed on her embroidery machine!
Recently I moved my sewing room to the room above the garage, you can read about it here! I love the sign and have a couple of hanging options. I love receiving handmade gifts and am blessed for having received these special gifts!
Have a blessed day!
