Hoot, Hoot

I'm an owl fanatic so when I saw this project in a Hoop-It-All class at our local quilt shop I knew I had to make it.  Thought I didn't take the class I was told it was very easy to do my own and so I gave it a go and here it is.   The colors are wintery in feeling and I'll add it to my growing Owl collection.


So you see it's not just another pretty face, it's actually a great needlework holder!

Secret Santa

I received the most delightful surprise while at my monthly quilting group this past Friday, a gift from Santa.

I was absolutely taken by surprise but what an amazing surprise that touched my heart beyond what words can express.  To know that someone or some people cared enough about me to go to all this trouble is amazing.
 
Here is my initial reaction and I'll tell you it only gets better but I'll not embarrass myself any further with the stunned look I had on my face the whole time I was opening this wonderful bag of gifts.
It's chock a block full of Christmas treasures and I can't wait to show them all to you!
So here they are in all their Christmas glory, waiting for December 25th to be enjoyed.  Well, OK we did enjoy some cookies that night but I'm waiting for my oldest son to arrive next week for the holidays and then I'll definitely start enjoying my Secret Santa Surprise!
