I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday and are safe from the storms that are hitting everyone. We are getting wet snow tonight, so not as bad as most areas. Good weather to stay in and work on projects and with all of the goodies from my friends and wins this year, I will be keeping very busy.
My friend Kelley, With Hook and Needle sent me a wonderful box. She made me this beautiful snowman rug, I love it, her work is amazing, she has a gift for prim hooking and her color choices are wonderful.
She also sent me a package of the woolie flannels, I love those and I can't wait to make a quilt with them. A fun new pattern to make for next year and she even included a beautiful print for the piece. I love this wool, a real treat for me, have never had hand dyed wools before and I will use them in a special project. She also made me a wonderful christmas pillow, but I forgot to take a photo of it. I am looking forward to finishing projects and starting new ones this year.
I was also the lucky winner of a bag from the Green Bag Lady. The bag she made is beautifully made and I love the fabrics. She makes bags from recycled fabrics to use for shopping and gives them away, as long as your promise to use that instead of plastic. I think it is a wonderful idea and a wonderful cause. I decided to give mine to my DIL and put her gifts inside the bag and then she can use it afterwards for her shopping trips. This is Ivy holding her new bag and carrying my grandson in that little belly, lol. Be sure to visit the Green Bag Lady and see how you can get a bag of your own.
