Tuesday Thankful

Karen gifted me this mini quilt for Christmas! She told me I better open it before X-mas so I can use it. Karen, I think this one is meant to be left out all year round! It is absolutey beautiful my friend. Thank you!


Debbie also sent me a packet with an email note to say open hers upon arrival. I love prim and old and just look at these ornaments! CUTE is what I say and smells so good! You can read more about these at her blog here! Thank you Debbie!!!


Again this year I failed making myself a tree skirt. I think in part because I've never really found one that has excited me? I don't know. I just know that I spotted this pattern somewhere and immediately went on a hunt for it. I found it at Shabby Fabrics and it was kitted with gorgeous flannel so without hesitation my finger hit the order button! You see, earlier in the year I quilted a client quilt using the same flannel and I fell in love with the quality, color and feel of it! I was bummed to not have something from this line of fabric, "Warm Woolen Mittens" by Bonnie Sullivan and Maywood Studio. If you click HERE you can see this pattern better than my photo. Love it!

The snowman ornament with the bird on his nose is very cute. Is that on wool?

It is a challenge to find just the right pattern for a tree skirt. Glad you found pattern and fabric...happy sewing and a very happy Christmas, too. :-D

Sue said...

I love the quilt and Karen does such nice work. Those are some wonderful ornaments too.

Wishing you and yours a fantastic Christmas!

Kaaren said...

Santa definitely made an early stop at the Hollow!

Gorgeous gifts, Mary and very deserving too! Enjoy, my friend.

You have very thoughtful friends--beautiful little quilt, and those ornaments are so primitive looking. Love them.
That is fun looking flannel--would make a great tree skirt. We're using the same one we bought at a church fund raising bazaar almost 30 years ago. I think we need an upgrade!

Libby said...

That Karen is such a sweetie. Love all your gifts *S*

Needled Mom said...

I bookmarked the exact same tree skirt! I loved it! I think it will be gorgeous. My goal each year is to make a new tree skirt and each yeah I sigh because I have not done it.

More lovely mail in your mailbox! Isn't it exciting to collect the mail?

Very sweet gifties!!! Merry Christmas to you and your family, Mary!!

I took love the fabric line for this tree skirt but with 2 cats who enjoy sleeping under our tree, flannel doesn't work really well. Right now my tree skirt is felt and it is just a cat hair collector. Love the patttern! And all the goodies too. Merry Christmas to you and your family, Mary!

Dandelion Quilts said...

What nice gifts, and such perfect fabrics for that darling tree skirt, Mary. You know, sewing a new skirt has been on my list for years. LOL. I suspect it will be there for another.

Vivian said...

It's so easy, and fun, to hit that order button when you find something that you didn't know you were looking for till you see it. (hope that makes sense)
Delightful gifts, Mary. You have some very special friends.
Merry Christmas to you.

Mary said...

Ok, So this time next year, you are going to show us your finished tree skirt! Right? LOL! I have bought numerous patterns also in hopes of actually making one! Never have! Still use an old white sheet, which I forgot to stick under the tree this year.

Carrie P. said...

More great gifts. that tree skirt is going to be great.
Happy Birthday!

Sinta Renee said...

Beautiful gifts Mary! You are so blessed! I really like that tree skirt pattern/I looked over at SF site... it is a nice one. I think we just need to continue our holiday sewing all of 2012 and be ahead of the game!

Jo said...

Merry Christmas MARY....Enjoy your time with family and friends.
