Birthday #56

Hello Friends~
OhMyGosh!!! The years have just flown by, another Birthday has come and gone. I just had to share with you what my Dear Friend JoAnn made for me. It's a paper mache box 4"high by 3" across that she covered with some awesome fabric, then she covered the lid with 2 colors of the wool. She stitched the tiny whale on 36ct over one! It is a little over 1" and just darling. Inside a sweet little ivory whale needle keeper. What a gift! I will treasure it forever, just like I do our friendship!! Thanks again JoAnn!
The next photos are of some things I have made recently, a wool applique heart pillow, by Maggie B, my first time to applique and it was alot of fun, so I plan on doing some more of that. The next 2 photos are Valentine Pillows that I stitched. dyed and sewed up and filled with walnut shells, just love the feel of the walnut shells. The next picture is a small sampler, an old Carriage House Sampling design which I will make into a needle case one of these days.
Hope life is treating you all well, and like everyone else, dreaming of Spring!!!
Thanks for visiting~
