Special Gifties...

The house has calmed down tonight after watching our Pack take care of the Bears and reserve their tickets to the Super Bowl...what an incredible season!

Since I have a number of projects in the works right now and nothing really complete, I thought this might be a good time to do a Show 'n Tell with some special gifts I received from my talented friends.

Our Quilt History group, Liberty Ladies, exchange gifts every December and this is what I am enjoying now!

A fun and very clever puzzle box with antique quilt images - depending on how you open it to create a new box, each view has different quilts.



This sweet pincushion in the shape of a vintage bird - a Kathy Schmitz pattern.
 
And an embroidered linen towel with our groups name & the year. Thank you Jan!!


From my friend Chris, who loves scrapbooking & beading in addition to quilting - a personal calendar - each month with precious images...I don't know how she finds the time with teaching at the university & being a full time Mom.

 
Our little group of appliquers who meet once a month....Barbara Jean is always coming up with something clever - I wore this Christmas Day too. Each apron was different - mine had a northwoods motif - just perfect!


And just last week, our Garden Buds group which meets during the day due to some of us (who will remain nameless!) who just can't see well enough to drive at night anymore...this lovely pincushion done in cross stitch - something I could never master...Dee also included a sweet pair of little scissors.



Each of these special gifties has a place in my heart and is a reminder of the people who created them. I am blessed to share a bond with others who find such pleasure in using their hands to make something to present to someone.

Wishing each of you a good week and now it is on to the Super Bowl and meeting up with the Pittsburgh Steelers - congratulations on their win tonight...

AND GO PACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh no - I only wish...now that I read what I wrote I can see how that looks! I meant the team reserved their tickets...wonder if they need help carrying their luggage??? I have never even been to a Lambeau game - that is on my bucket list!
