Lovely Gifts

I would like to share some of the gifts that I received for Christmas. For many years I have exchanged gifts with friends. This is the best part of Christmas. I love handmade gifts. First this is a notion bag. I think that it is too pretty to use. I just may stuff it and put it on a shelf. It is crossed stitched. The pattern is by Erica Michaels

This is the cutest little stitchery in the cutest little frame. Debbie made it for me. It is an iron on pattern. I am not sure who it is by . I have been afraid to use iron on patterns. She said that the directions were clear and it was very easy to do. The inside frame opening is only 2" by 3". I love it.

She added some needles, a little gripper and a quilting sign to this package. I forgot to take pictures of these gifts as we were opening them. They were all so pretty!

This is a snowman pillow from Crab-Apple Hill. I love the fabric she used. I bought some too. Just because I liked it. Now I know what I may use it for. I love snowmen! Isn't he cute? I will be back with more gifts soon.

Happy New Year Pat :)
What lovely gifts you have received. I'm just in love with that little button bag and am now off to do a search for the pattern.
Love the Crabapple Hill Snowman too. I have a snowman cushion pattern somewhere but I don't think it will be done this year.

Hi - the little basket of daisies is one of my designs - I am glad that you like it!
I like what your friend has created - it looks so cute in that frame.
The pattern is called "Vintage Pinnies" (mini pincushions) and there are 4 iron-on designs in the pattern.
This is one of them.
Best wishes :-)
