Christmas Gifts

On Christmas Day I opened these amazing gifts made by my 'friends in stitching' pal, Dawnie. To say I was thrilled would be an understatement! Dawnie used beautiful French General fabrics to make me the Table Centre from Natalie Bird's Red Home book.
I love the stitching and fabrics on the front ...


and the backing fabric is divine. (I've already been investigating online to see where I can purchase some to add to my French General stash!)


 Dawnie also made me the Little House Pincushion from Red Home. There is so much work in this lovely pincushion. I love the appliqued house with it's stitched blue bird ....

 
 the musical quote and ...


 these tiny amazing hexies. Wow!

 
Thank you so much, Dawnie. My presents are perfect. I purchased the Red Home book earlier this year but haven't had a chance to make anything yet. I feel thoroughly spoilt but so grateful for the thought and effort you put into my gifts.

  5. Beautiful gifts. I am too working on this table center, and now this photo makes me want to go in to my sewingroom and finish it. I love the Red home book and are also working on the big quilt from it.

    Merry Christmas to you and a happy new sewing year.
