Gifts From Heart & Hands

 Isn't this just too cute?!  My friend Shirley saw this pattern at quilt market this past Fall and she knew I would love it.  (I need to get the name of pattern...or do you know?)
 Shirley also made this sweet wool pouch for my early birthday gift.  I love those stitches on the wool patches.  (not so sure I'd have the patience)  I've been auditioning where I want it to be seen in my home since it compliments each room perfectly.


 Gifts from heart and hands are the best in my book!  This past week I received a surprise package from Debbie of Woolen Sails Blog.  I just love these punch needle pieces.
This is my last showing of my NEW Christmas tree skirt for this year.  It's a perfect fit!
I posted this quilt last year...and now once again, just because I enjoy this quilt so much and only have it out this time of year.

Your tree skirt looks awesome Mary. Love the snowman wall hanging too. Did you see that the maker of that snowman pattern has a table runner pattern out this year called Snow Flakes. Nice gifts from your friends.
