Henry Glass Designers' Progressive Dinner Party - Day 2 Janet Rae Nesbitt



Meet Janet Rae Nesbitt of One Sister Designs. 
This is her Christmas collection called "Believe" which ships in May.

Believe Collection



Favorite Christmas Memory

Both of my kids were, and still are, terrible snoops and package shakers!  When they were younger, they were always trying to discover either where I'd hidden the presents, or if the presents were wrapped and under the tree, they would do the heft and rattle test to try and figure out what was inside.  I still go to great lengths to try and fool them by putting boxes inside of boxes, or adding extra things to the boxes to make them heavier.  Some years I don't even put name tags on them- One will get red ribbon and one gets green and they don't know whose are whose until Christmas morning- it makes them crazy and keeps them guessing which is most of the fun!  Zack says his favorite memory was the year they received a rather large package that they had to share...I had wrapped the nintendo game system with my couch quilts and then put it all in a fabric box and wrapped it up.  As they unwrapped it and came to the fabric box, they were incredulous that I might have gotten them fabric "You got us fabric?" But then they opened the box: "Quilts! You got us quilts?" Worst Christmas ever.....until I finally talked them into being polite and looking at the quilts so they didn't hurt my feelings over such a thoughtful and time consuming gift, and finally they found the prize inside! Gotta ya! Can't wait to do it all again this year!  Here's hoping you all have fun and merry times with those you love this holiday season!

Love this fabric!

Janet Nesbitt said...

Thank you for all of the great comments! In case you didn't realize, the first quilt that looks like it is applied is really made from the "convenience" fabric! No applique involved and a piec of cake to make!

Nancy said...

I loved playing tricks on my kids to! One year once my son got to the wanting-money-for-the-gift-stage,
I went to the bank and got a bag of pennies ($50 value) and wrapped them up. It was pretty heavy, so he had no idea what was in it.
It was pretty funny!
