Twas The Night

Ah, my day!



 Thank you Marlene, our cheerleader from  Stitchin` By The lake and Madam Samm at Sew We Quilt , the creator of  this Hop. Here is a quickie rundown of the rules. The plan is to make a gift able to be completed in a few hours.  Each participant sends a gift to the Hop member whose name is below our name on the list and receives a gift from another member whose name is above ours..  We also have the option of providing our ideas for easy, quick to make and not too expensive gifts. It`s been fun seeing presents sent, presents received and project ideas provided by our participants.

Gifts I Received

I received these gifts from Brittany at
Pickle`s Quilting


Isn`t this wreath splendid? And I love that she used twine for the wreath base. It is just what I wanted.
Brittany you can correct me if it`s not twine.

Look at this beautiful fabric! Brittany was generous here too. I love lime green.


And how about the batiks? Wonderful rich colors.



I made lots of small presents for my family,. Here are a couple of hot pad/ mug rugs I made for a neighbor. I can`t post any gifts because they must remain a secret!.



My friend is from the midwest. She loved the Americana style fabric I chose. It reminded her of home.



Below is a list of today`s participants. Please visit them to see their wonderful projects and leave a comment about their lovely projects. You are now at Cate`s Linens.  Thank you for visiting!
