More lovely gifts!

That Debbie sure was busy this year. I must have been a very good girl! This is a candle mat pattern from Bunny Hill. I saw this on Anne Sutton's blog last year and made one for Debbie. She returned the favor this year to me. I love it!

Every year we exchange a Christmas ornament. This year we exchanged the same one. She also gave me a new charm for my Pandora bracelet. Love that too!

This is a pattern by Willow Valley Store. Pop over and see Catherine. She has some beautiful patterns. They are iron on or you can trace them on fabric if you like. I have not done an iron on yet but it is in my pile of to do soon projects. The first one that I am going to do is the Orchard Cottage. I live in the heart of Macintosh country and they are the best apples you will ever eat. When I look at this pattern I can smell the fresh apples and apple blossoms. By the way Catherine has great give aways. I know because I won one.

Another Willow Valley Store Pattern.

This is a little tin that was purchased at Michael's and decorated with scrapbook paper and lace. I thought that it was so cute on its own and then I opened it.

Inside is a new Valdani pearl cotton #592. It's a variegated eggplant color. Two packages of embroidery needles and a beautiful needle minder.

This is a book that was decorated for Christmas. We took a ton of pictures at Christmas. I can't wait to select pictures for the book.

Great job!

Wasn't everything beautiful? Thanks so much Debbie. These gifts and your friendship means so much to me. I will be back to chat soon. I am off to watch The Bachelor.
