Holiday Finishes and Overdue Thanks!

Oh Joy....I've got another one bound! This one I locker hooked using a pattern by Kelley Belfast aka kanknchester
I just love the simplicity of this one yet it speaks volumes to me!

I picked up this pattern at Country Collections a week ago and just loved stitching it up. It's a pattern by Buttermilk Basin and I just need to do a lil' hand quilting and then of course it will need bound!

Now to show you some RAK's I received....

I've been a bit behind on thanking two gals....
Pati Jane made this wonderful apron for me to use while I'm working on rugs. It has the handiest of pockets great for holding all sorts of things. Don't you just love the Got Wool? Yeah I've got Wool!!! She gave it to me while we were at camp along with a really nice bag.

My dear friend Jo while at rug camp gave me a handmade flower pin (so cute) and I've had to hide it from Sloan he really likes it, some of her beautiful hand~dyed wool, a fun little play mat for Sloan, an inspiring quilt book, and an awesome wool strip holder made from USA print....Love it!

Such thoughtfulness from some dear friends. Thank you Pati Jane and Jo :)

Happy Trails....Ginger

What great gifts. You have some special friends in your life.
I love the little stitchery and locker hooking is sweet. I have tried locker hooking and it is really hard on my hands.
Enjoy your week end.
