Zig and Zag for Baby Girl

We welcomed a new niece to our family.... well, a few months ago.
I hear she is so cute.  I can't wait to meet her someday but she lives across the country.
I made this little quilt and sent it to her.
 All those half-square triangles were actually fun to play with.

 The back turned out cute too.

Welcome Little One!

Ornament exchange 2011

I survived the holidays!
We had a wonderful, magical holiday season and it's nice to be back to normal life.
A few friends and I got together before Christmas for a small ornament exchange and I wanted to show off the pretty things that we shared.

These are the quilled snowflakes that I made to share.
I love doing these. They are so pretty and elegant looking.
 ...A pretty ball made with string and ribbon...
 ...a flower made from antique book pages...
 ...a cinnamon stick tree and a hot pad filled with cinnamon sticks that smelled wonderful!...
 ...a drum filled with chocolate (they didn't last long)...
 ...and a glass bird.
All nice additions to our Christmas tree decor.
