Secret Santa Gift

One of my favorite quilting groups always does a Secret Santa swap in December.  I always like to sign-up for this activity because it is fun to make 'quilty' Christmas things for friends and also fun to be surprised by a gift from your secret friend.  This year my dear friend, Angela, had my name and she made the most beautiful  Christmas pillow.

The snowflake was made by hand tatting and then hand stitched to the beautiful poinsettia background.  If you look closely you will see tiny beads catching the light.  To me, it is like they are dancing around the pillow.  I just love it!  Angela was also generous in giving me a cute little bubble bath and lip balm, too ~ both will go to good use this holiday season.

I hope all of you are enjoying a very Happy Holiday Season!

Until next time . . .
