Pillows and Presents!


Last week I won a contest sponsored by Kelley of With Hook and Needle. She had two snowman rugs to giveaway and I was the lucky winner of one of the rugs. I just love my new rug and it looks wonderful on my chest. Kelley has such a wonderful gift of hooking prim rugs and the colors do look wonderful in person.

I also made some tree blocks last year and didn't know what to do with them, so I decided pillows would be fun and easy. I kept them simple and added balsam to each one, then put one in different areas of the house to get the pine scent since I don't have any real trees. I put them in the photo all together so you could see what they look like. It is something simple you can do yourself, just use patterns you have with trees and make them into little pillows. If you don't have a pattern, search the web for free christmas tree graphics. Great to put around the house or for bowl fillers. An added benefit is, you can have a tree that is cat proof.


Another surprise this week was a gift from Anna of Woolie Mammoth. She surprise me with this beautiful framed wool piece and I love the saying. I decided to put it in my office to remind me to enjoy each and every day of my life. It is also a reminder of the friendships I have made through blogging.

There are still 6 days left to enter the contest, sponsored by This-n-That Fabrics. All you have to do is submit one of your christmas quilts that you made this year, easy as that.
