Lovely Gifts

Hi friends! Our friend Jacquie sent me super, lovely surprise gifts!
Do you see she made all three poodles?! The picture may not show the best, but Henry is a lovely creamy color. He is what Madeleine and I call a blonde apricot. ;)

I knew something was going on when the poodles started circling the gifts as I was opening the box and taking pictures. Mabel is telling me to open this one first!
Wow! It is a poodle party! Three different British doggy treats. And I am happy to say they are poodle approved. :)
Jacquie made this lovely needlebook with pansies! My absolute favorite flower of all. I plant them every year. Isn't her work perfect and gorgeous?!
Look how clever Jacquie is!
And how talented her beautiful daughter Hannah is! Hannah made me this beautiful postcard. I am sorry, I cannot use it. I just want to keep it for me! Thank you Hannah. I love it.
Thank you Jacquie. You are a very special person. You enrich many people's lives by just you being you!

Here is an updated picture of my Mystery SAL. We will be stitching one more color this week, black. Then we are done. This was fun. I think the hedgehog is so cute. You can find the Mystery SAL RIGHT HERE.
It has definitely gotten colder here. This little bed is one I made for Henry, however Murphy curls himself up tight and just fits.
I am still stitching up Christmas ornaments. I hope you have a great week my friends! Thank you for stopping by and leaving me such nice comments.

Stitching and praying,
Vickie
