Do you see that cute prim dollie? It's part of my gift from Peggy, but our dear friend Angela made her. She is just so special...I'll love her always. I'm going to call her Holly. You know, like Christmas Holly. :) Okay, maybe that's kind of corny, but I like it.
Thanks for all the goodies Peggy! :)

I finished this table topper tonight. If you remember this post from LAST YEAR I made two of these, one for my sister and one for me. I finished my sister's for her birthday in October '08, but mine sat in my "to do" basket all year. I was determined to finish it by Christmas and I did!! :) I love this pattern...it's a freebie from Patchalot Patterns.
Whiskers is keeping my box of Thimbleberries fabrics warm for me. Isn't she a helpful kitty? Zach is home for winter break...he needed some snuggle time with his favorite kitty. I'm not sure how much Smokey appreciated it. :)
That's all for now! I hope to be back more often with lots of quilty news!

Make Christmas tree ornaments!
I found a similar idea online about 3-4 years ago, but I don't remember where it was so I can't give proper credit. But this is what I came up with...I think they are adorable! :)
I made 22 of these babies! That's 88 yo-yo's! I'm giving one to each of the volunteers at the thrift shop. I hope they like them!
Also, I went to a small cookie exchange this morning. These are a few of the cookies that I brought...simple santas made from nutter butter cookies. They were a big hit!

Recently, we signed up for a Quilting Sister Christmas exchange and these are the wonderful goodies that I received from Angela.
I absolutely love the mini patriotic quilt. She knows I love all things patriotic and it is perfect for me! Also in the package was a darling snowman ornament (snowmen are also my favorite!), a lavender pillow, and pink ribbon zipper pouch. Everything is just perfect Angela...I love it all!! Thanks so much!
