THE BEST KIND OF GIFT

.............is a handmade one. I received some lovely gifts from friends this year and I wanted to show them here.

A shadow box from Dawn.  I caught my breath when I opened this. So much detail and every time I look at it I see something new.


She knows I love hexies   : )


Sonja, who is THE queen of all things stitchy,  made this little quilt with 1/4" hexagons


and then hand quilted it


A little mug rug from Roanda to remind me that even though it might be freezing outside, I can find 'Joy' while I sip my coffee


This is 'Snowbelle'.  I made her for a little gift this year.


She's all dressed up in her matching scarf and mitts ready for New Years Eve.


Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful New Year!
