I have some lovely projects to show you that arrived while I was away from blogland. First I won a giveaway that Amy had on her blog awhile ago. The first one is a cross stitch button roll that Amy stitched. She did a beautiful job of stitching and matching the fabrics on the inside . It is a pattern by Stacy Nash. The name of the pattern is Peacock Button Roll. I heart it!! Amy also sent along a pattern. I would like to make this pattern up as a Christmas gift soooo... I am not going to post a picture of it now. Thank you again Amy for picking my name in your draw and for the Christmas gift idea. I heart it!!
Next is some of the best chocolate I have had. This little goodie was from Martina in Italy. She sent not one, not two but three chocolate bars. I did share!!! There was one each of milk, dark and white chocolate. Delish!!! She must know that I love chocolate.
Martina also made the little notion bag below. I heart it too!! Thank you so much Martina.
Last but not least this beautiful stitchery, floss and pincushion arrived from Lilly. I also won a giveaway on Lilly's blog. This stitchery is so pretty. I would have had a hard time letting it go. Lilly included several skeins of floss and a beautiful hexagon pincushion made by her. She also included some extra fabric to use if I wanted to make a hanger for the stitchery. Thank you for being so thoughtful Lilly.
Here is a closer look at the pincushion. There are hexagons all over blogs lately. I want to try making some. Love them. Look at the covered button that she made. I have not seen this before. It must be a little tricky with such a small button. Click on the picture to enlarge. I hope you can see how she did it. Love that idea.
Thank you so much ladies for all the goodies. My apologies again for taking so long to post them. Stitchers and quilters are the best. I will be back soon.
