It was my friend Nicola's birthday the other day and we did a birthday exchange this year. Here is the gift that I
made for her.
This design is from The Prairie Schooler's alphabet series. I mounted it atop a wooden box which I stained.
I received a lovely e-mail from Nicola telling me she really liked the gift. I'm so happy that it got to her in time to add a little more joy to her special day!
This is the ornament that I stitched for her Christmas gift; it's another Prairie Schooler design. This one is from the Old World Santas Leaflet.
Besides sending gifts to my friends, I have also received some really sweet ones from special people.
This first sweet ornament is from the very talented Myra. I just loved the elegant Victorian look of this little skate. The blade is creatively fashioned from a piece of wire. I thought the way Myra shared it on her blog was beautiful. I was really touched when a little package appeared in my mailbox last week bearing this delicate little keepsake. Thanks again Myra! It is really a charmer and it will be treasured every year when I hang it up.
This next stitched beauty is from the sweetest lady I know, BeckySC
When Becky posted this little pillow to her blog, I commented how much I loved it because of the color combination of red and green. I was really touched when it came to my house last week.
Thank you everyone who has made my Christmas holiday a very special one this year!
