The last few months has been hectic but I've found a wee bit of time to create something I have been planning to make for some time. First I bought this lovely Pale Pink Rose Toile fabric back in April when I was visiting the Paducah Quilt Show. A few months later I discovered "Laurie Charming Designs" and her absolutely wonderful "Hearts and Roses Push Pins and Refrigerator Magnets". I've had them since summer. So I finally got a nice bulletin board and put them all together. Here is the results. I love it. What do you all think??? It will go into my sewing room after I paint the walls this same lovely pale pink color.
This photo show an up close of the Lovely Hearts and Roses Push Pins.
I received this "Lovely Friendship Calender" from a Dear Friend in Australia. Every month is full of lovely photos of blooms and china. It is one of the prettiest calenders I have ever seen and it has the most wonderful "Friendship" quote every month to read.
I believe everyone know what a big fan I am of Anne of Green Gable. My Dear DIL Jenny called PEI and order this 100th Anniversary Ornament for me along with a couple of other gifts below. I love them all.
Jenny also bought me a PEI Travel Book. I plan to read this from cover to cover.
Jenny also order this lovely "Anne of Green Gable Wind Chime". It will be hanging from my Gazebo as soon as Spring gets here. At the moment with all the heaps of snow we have it is difficult to imagine Spring yet.
I have admired Victorian Christmas Cracker for sometime. This is my first attempt of creating one. The focus fabric is called "Christmas Greeting, Flower Fairies" from the estate of Cicely Mary Barker. I let my stitching imagination be inspired from this lovely piece of fabric. I gave it as a Christmas Present filled with goodies for a Dear Friend.
Below is the Christmas Cracker I received. It was created with lovely Bangkok silks fabrics and embellished in very pretty stitches and beads and such .
I also received some Lovely Treasures from another Dear Friend in The Netherlands. I plan to use the "Rose Buttons" on my Crazy Quilt that I plan to start working on again in the new year. I truly love the Beaded Pendant and the beautiful folded Christmas Ornament and the very lovely fabrics.
I also received a couple of "Beautiful Post Cards from a friend in the UK". I just loved the wool felted flowers and rolls that I received from my friend in Australia.
I had my Christmas Catus for many years and it has been at my Mom home for some time. I finally brought it home with me at Thanksgiving. I took some Vitamin B tablet and dissolved it in water. I then diluted it with another glass of water and then gave it to my Christmas Catus. I could hardly believe it immediate went from very sad looking to blooming within a month. Isn't it just beautiful. Hopefully next year I will have many more blooms.
Two days prior to Christmas we received lots of rain. Then on Christmas Day Night it started to snow and it has not stopped yet. Below our "Lovely Two Bird Feeders" My Sweetie build for me and they are being smothered in snow. They are filled with lots of food but No birds are to be seen. I think they are all snuggled in Pine Trees trying to keep warm.
