Different Stuff?!!!

First of all, a little FYI. This is a sample of several kinds of Presencia Threads. I joined Quilters Club of America a couple of months ago, I got my welcome package that included lots of goodies from different companies. Also included was a card explaining that they had run out of the Presencia Thread Samplers and if I wanted one to mail the card in and they would mail it out to me as soon as more came in. I mailed the card in and I am posting this to show you what I got. There are 5 full sized threads in this package. A 40, 50, and 60 Weight cottonthreads, a rayon spool, A Finca Pearl Cotton, and a skein of Embroidery floss. I am impressed and anxious to try these out as I have never used Presencia before but have heard nice things about it.
I went to Wally World (WalMart), among other things, looking for a 5 subject notebook for my "work on 4 UFP at a time" project that I learned from Monica over at Button Counter. I found this neat notebook with dividers.
And each divider has a pocket and a small envelope at the bottom for notecards, pattern pieces or anything that you might find it useful for. Now for containers. Monica uses large different colored bags. I don't have any, so am thinking about organizer containers if they are big enough. I will have to report later.

I made a basket block and filled it with holly (buttonhole stitch) Several people ask me if was a BOM and I was thinking of doing that and filling each month's basket with appropriate contents. Then I got the idea of using a cowboy boot. You know that I am from Texas and loved Texas themed quilts. I was thinking of doing an applique cowboy boot and filling the boot with something appropriate for the month. I got out my sketch book and this pattern is my first try. I will try to get a block made tomorrow and see what you think. No promises, but I am ichin to be stitchin.

I love the idea of the boot a month.

I've started to organise my sewing like Monica as well. Who knows I might actually get some finished.
