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~

Happy birthday, to you! I love that whale box and the whale itself is just perfect. Do you know what pattern it is. I'd like to get my hands on it. Your own finishes are just as awesome! I also stitched that little CHS piece. It's a sweet, little sampler.
