Gift Received/Gift Given

I have received the MOST wonderful exchange gift from my friend Maggy.  She made me this lovely needlecase.  I adore autumn colors and she chose the loveliest fabrics.   She also put lovely delicate feather stitching around the edge!

It will be great to hold a pair of my scissors……….

or perhaps a good portion of my collection!!!

And she even made me a lovely scissor holder to use while I am working. I am always losing my scissors in the cushions, so this will save them!

I love both of these handmade items. Thank you Maggy. We have decided that an exchange for Les Muguets Day (May 1st) will be the perfect time each year to have a little exchange. I must begin thinking of something special for next year now.

I posted last week about the gift I sent to Maggy….but this week I am sending a small gift for Maggy’s daughter who recently had a beautiful little baby girl. You have seen photos of this bunny before, but it is completed now. I finished the bunny and was waiting to add the name of the baby and the date.

Baby Pauline is absolutely adorable….all pink and pretty.    Maggy now has three grandchildren!   Congratulations!!!

Amities, Averyclaire
