Happy New Year!

Happy New Year one and all, although I must say that the Christmas and New Year Holiday seems a very dim and distant memory already! I thought that you might enjoy looking at the wonderful Christmas gifts that my friend Carol made for me. Imagine my delight when I pulled this beautiful box out of the gift bag............



Unfortunately the photos are not in the order that I wanted here, so here you see the entire gift set in all it's glory - such a pleasure to behold and the smell coming from the little pillows was just gorgeous - cinnamon and spices........




Here are the little pillows before I opened them up - isn't that tissue paper just delightful - I LOVE crows..... :-)

Here is a close up of one of the pillows



And here they are all are, in all their glory - such a wonderful gift; I am very lucky!




I am hoping to get back to blogging more regularly in 2010 as I really do miss reading your comments and I find that displaying my progress here keeps me motivated to stitch more too. I will be back shortly to upload the photos of the gift that I made for Carol....... Thanks for visiting!
Love Jackie x

It's so nice to see a post from you, Jackie! You did get a beautiful gift, you lucky girl, you!! That box all by itself would have been a special gift but those sweet pillows, too! Whoo Hoo for you! I hope your holidays were wonderful and that the New Year is the best ever!

What a beautiful gift!! Yes, blogging keeps me motivated too, definitely! But we all fall prey to the loss of mojo sometimes! Happy New Year!
