Under the tree...

For Christmas this year, I was so pleased to receive these:
these:and my mom made me this:
This is a little stitch sampler book made from felt. Look at the beautiful stitching and little seed beads on the cover. I love the colors!
This book has blank felt pages. I am going to stitch my favorite stitches sampler style on these pages!

Oh I love that little book! It's darling. I got some great light effects DMC floss from my mom and a travel floss holder. My MIL also gave me $25 to Joann's!

And my wonderful hubby got me a sewing machine! That quilt of your patterns will be well on it's way!!
