first little gift

Last weekend I had the chance to stitch up this little pillow for a Christmas swap I'm doing.

The prim snowman design is from Heartstrings Embroidery. All of the Christmas fabrics were ones I had in stash. I think they were mostly from Hobby Lobby. I used 3" strips to patchwork a border around the wool felt embroidery.

That's the sum total of my sewing (for others or me) for the past week. But I'm off for Thanksgiving now, so hopefully I'll have things to share!

Not today though, I'm leaving in a little while to shop with my sister & Lu, and then we're off to dinner and this:

Have a great day!


  1. Have a wonderful birthday!!

  2. Beautiful little pillow and what a great way to ring in your birthday! g

  3. That is such a pretty little pillow - I love it!

  4. Darling pillow, have a wonderful time at Wicked (it is fantastic) and Happy Thanksgiving.

    Given your recent week with a 'deflating person', do I have the suggestion for a gift for them ... see above (no personal connection to seller except they always make me laugh)


I love hearing from you, and thank you in advance for reading and commenting! &
