SWEET LITTLE GIFTS

 
Thursday was a sweet and peaceful day as I gathered with two friends for lunch, visiting, and a gift exchange. These are the sweetest gifts because we all love the same things and that makes it fun to give and fun to receive! Joan made us each the darling little framed log cabin block. Isn't it adorable?!

Sue and Joan with Ladybug in the middle. I am so blessed to have these ladies as my friends! They are the best!

Sue made each of us this really great sewing kit. Opened you can see all the pockets for various items. The flaps fold down to cover things while it is folded. A small cutting mat fits in the back pocket and a 4" square ruler will fit in the right square pocket. Sue has been teaching this as a class at the LQS and everyone loves it! Joan and I have been wanting to make this but now we have one made by the expert! Isn't it great!

  
This is the little quiltlet that I made for each of them. I made the hourglass blocks with 5" squares, and the simple applique is wool, ala Cheri Saffiote Payne. What a fun day we had!

Now this makes me happy. The generosity shared between friends and in turn shared with us is... well quite honestly it's another moment of the "Spirit of Christmas" I'm stumbling across in the blogosphere. Maybe it's just me but it seems This Season to be a little more 'merry & bright' in the 'sphere.

I agree with KarenDianne, the generosity between friends is so nice. It is fun to give gifts to people you know enjoy the same things and will appreciate the thought!!

Marcie,
I just wanted to thank you for your 2007 pattern, Trees on the Table. I decided I had to have one for this year, I am almost finished with it, and I love it.
