I hope that those of you who celebrate have had a wonderful holiday! Our house has been abuzz with the excitement and anticipation of Santa's arrival. My little one was disappointed when she woke on Christmas morning and found that Santa had come and gone and she hadn't been able to give him the hug and kiss she had intended.
My littlest one also grouped the ornaments together on the tree in an uncommon way.
Many gifts have been exchanged lately. Here are some fabric appliqués I sent off to Kelly...
and some of the fabrics that I sent accompanying the matryoshka softie.
Kelly treated me (and ultimately Lilly) to the sweetest package!
This hand knit leaf is now hanging gaily on our tree.
And this magical hand-sewn sweetie has certainly captured our hearts!
Her face is so simple but so expressive and dear.
The tiny details are so charming. Here she is outside of her sleeping pouch. Look at all of the lovely hand stitches and the play of the various whimsical fabrics.
Finally, the ultimate in tiny cuteness is this amazing pillow accompanying what Kelly refers to as a winged grub. Thank you so very much Kelly for making us these incredibly special gifts. I hope to have time to blog more soon and show some of the secret things I was making before Christmas and that have now been given. Happy weekend!
