~~~Gift giving time of the year~~~

Just a quickie post to show a few gifts that have headed out my door, or will be soon....Can't really say for who...but, I've been making a list....and checking it twice.....

I did know that when my good friend Linda P. gifted a few rusty jingle bells and safety pins to me, they screemed BBD finishes..........So, I popped a couple on this finish tonight....I think they are perfect for this prim design...
Blackbird Designs
JCS Ornament Issue
32 ct flax linen, specified overdyes


And for me, you can't have too many little tuck pillows made with faded red check homespun fabric......... I took this pattern out of the BBD Joyeux Noel book and stitched it up prim as well......
Blackbird Designs
Joyeaux Noel book
32 ct linen, specified overdyes

And, here is array of framed gifts for a few friends............. When I saw these little frames, I knew I would have to stitch something miniture to fit the one inch opening...... Trail Creek Farms had this little tree pattern in an older JCS ornament issue that was the perfect fit.............Unlike my prim BBD finishes, these are bright and seem to pop against the painted metal frames.......


That's it for me tonight......Got to get a good nights rest...The kids are getting wilder than you know what in the classroom these days....Could it be that we have a little excitement in the air???
As Paula would say..."Night ch'all~~....

Your little ornaments are absolutely gorgeous. Your work never fails to inspire me. I love little rusty pins and bells and adding them to BD patterns is a great idea :>)
