My, oh my, this one was certainly well worth waiting for. Please let me play. But first I must ask Kelly -- What is a dish drain quilt? Inquiring minds want to know.

FAVORITE COLOR – Yes . . . the whole dang color wheel
CHRISTMAS STYLE – Traditional
JEWELRY – Can’t see well enough to put the stuff on, so I don’t wear it.
COLLECTIONS – Little books. . . you know about 3” square on any subject. Small collector spoons . . . the kind you get in airport or touristy shops
HOBBIES – Machine embroidery, quilting, crafting, mail art, constructing handmade books, cooking (especially Italian), reading (especially sci-fi, historical fiction and mysteries). And making masks during sucky 2020.
WOULD LOVE TO RECEIVE – anything that supports my hobbies (fabric, paper, word/phrase rubber stamps, Italian stuff), anything handmade, surprises, chocolate anything (except cherries), a “do-over” for this year, a total remodel of the ole’ bod.
DRINKS – Unusual coffees, teas and occasional adult beverages
DÉCOR PREFERENCES – I live on a little farm and have a “chicken” kitchen. The rest of the place is eclectic. But I love things that are vintage or retro.

A dish drainer quilt is for those of us who do not have a double sink and a forced to put our plates on the counter before we dry them. They are maybe 24" x 18" or whatever size will fit on the counter. They can be really fancy quilt with a thin layer of batting or really simple like mine made of a bath towel folded in half the short way. I have found mine incredibly useful.

The anticipated Christmas Stocking has arrived ~~ Sign me up please!!

I love the great out doors and any activity that is associated with Mother Nature.
I have somewhat of a fixation for bees.
My favorite color is, of course, all shades of green.
I have pierced ears and can't leave my home without earrings.
I really am a farm girl both literally and at heart so love to grow plants and herbs.
I love to entertain and prepare a gourmet meal for friends and family.
I have become obsessed with Farm Girl projects whether sew, crochet, wood or you name it.
I can't walk away from a puzzle or coloring book without having completed it.
Dark chocolate with nuts (OHH I LOVE NUTS!!) is my favorite.
Either tea or coffee are a morning treat, however not a requirement.
But what I love most - a surprise.

This is soo exciting !!
