Christmas 2019 Incoming

I love Christmas.  I love making and giving and I'm not adverse to receiving.   I have a few old friends who I exchange handmade items with every year and I generally make some type of small gift to send to family with their main gifts. My next post will be dedicated to the outgoing but this posting is dedicated to the lovely homemade gifts I have received this year.

My friend B got a lovely Bernina from her hubby for Christmas a little early,  just before Thanksgiving.  She made this wonderful pillow for me on it.

It came with this great matching ornament that was ridiculously hard to photograph. This picture just doesn't do it  justice.

my friend P made this beautifully hand quilted table runner.

and included in the package were these amazing buttons.

I love them.  For the time being I am going to pin them to my design wall and just admire them. One of these days I'll come up with a plan for them but it will have to be a very special project.

I also exchanged goodies with some local friends. 

I love FSL and received 3 beautiful FSL ornaments

And then there is this very cool snow
globe.  Can't wait to try a few of these on my own.

Then there are the quilty thoughtful gifts from those who are not the crafty type but who really, really know me well.

Gift cards to my favorite quilt store in Wildwood, FL

a just a wonderful quilty gift from a quilt buddy

The small wool ironing mat.  I already own the large one but this one is 10 inches square and fits right next to the machine or the mobile cutting mat. Perfect for the many small projects I like tinkering with.

My thanks to all of my quilty buds.

Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.


  1. No “Christmas Incoming” here, so I’m happy to admire the lovely gifts you received! Obviously, you're a "well-known" and much-loved maker. It's great that you put up a tree for displaying your beautiful ornaments. That small wool pressing mat is the best! I won mine in an Instagram giveaway and use it almost every day.

  2. Oh my goodness, you received some amazing and beautiful gifts. I love those buttons!
