My last package finally arrived to Angela and I'm ANGRY as it was destroyed by the not so decent people at customs !!! Two things 'magically dissappeared from the package, luckily my gift # 1 to Angela arrived safe and sound!!!
I made her this 2010 calendar holder quilt with the 'Casa Dolce Casa' saying (Home Sweet Home) in italian, and she liked it and hung it in her kitchen. I'm so happy that she liked it !!! You can see her post here. I tried to make it in a country style that she likes, I'm glad I succeeded although it's not my style ! LOL
I received my gorgeous Christmas ornie from Kim over at Pokey Town and I love it!
She used a gorgeous green felt and machine
embroidered Christmas motifs.
Then embelished it with red lace and a little bell.
And she included the most adorable Christmas card with the cutest Christmas tree!
Yes!! That's what I opened till now from the gorgeous packages I received from from Angela in Italy, and I loved every one of them !!! She chose such cute gifties and I'm so grateful for that, thank you Angela!
On the other hand, I'm terribly sorry that she didn't receive my parcels yet, I check every day with the post office and nothing. Hope you get your pressies really, really soon !!

So what will be the next giftie ??? Ohhhh, lots of excitement and anticipation !!!
Today, and for the next four days, is Giveaway Day !!! Yes !! And I'm taking part in it this time ! Sew Mama Sew will post different lists of hundreds of blogs for you to visit and participate in their giveaways, so don't miss the chance and maybe you'll end up winning !!!
So...what's up for grabs here? Well, I decided to make a little Tilda pouch for you, in Christmas fabrics and white on white lining. It really is little...4" high and 5.5" on its widest part, so you can have it in your bag with all the things a girl always carries.
And I already filled it with some treats...a pink lip gloss on a key chain,
a double mirror and apple scented tissues.
So if you'd like to win it just leave a comment on this post telling me something about Christmas
in your country, a tradition, a special meal, a special carol, what you toast with.
I love to know about different traditions and love Christmas so I get to begin!!!
We always eat icecream as a dessert for our Christmas Dinner
as we celebrate Christmas in Summer and we always toast with apple cider !!! YUMMY
The winner will be chosen randomly on December 7th and I will ship internationally
This is what I've been working on, it's a little quilt, baby quilt size I guess, for my dog Oliver.
He loves everything in fabric or yarn so I decided to make him his own quilt...Mmmm, I'll let you in on a little secret...he already tried it !!! But it's not finished yet, I still have to quilt and bind, the worst part, I know, but I love both of them because I'm closer to finishing my little piece !!!
I took part in STUD's (Swap Till U Drop, a Flickr Group) Anniversary Swap in September and my partner for that month was Bec from Australia. We had to make a Mini with the 1st Anniversary Theme, so it could include yellow, gold, a clock, carnations (a flower that I hate), etc, all things related to a 1st year Anniversary.
As my partner liked some of the Minis I had done I chose to make one with a little birdie on it,
similar to the one I sent to my Summertime Mini Quilt Swap partner.
So much yellow going on here !!!
And look at the gorgeous quiltie that Bec made for me !!! She chose the clock as a theme and she made me a Quilter's clock, and I LOOVE it !!! Her sewing machine does wonderful embroidery !!!
It's already up and running in my sewing room, counting every minute I get to do what i love the most...QUILTING AND EMBROIDERY !!!
When I arrived home I found a package that came all the way from Germany, and it was from my Stitcher's Angel Anett of Allerlei aus Stoff !!! I opened it right away !!! Ohhh My Goodness !!!! She made such a terrific job with her gifties !!!
This is the great package that she sent me !!! Thank you Anett !!!
I love Christmas, redwork and one of my favorite colors is red,
and she embroidered this gorgeous quiltie for me. Look at all the details !
She hand quilted it, it's so perfect, and the fabrics she chose are lovely !!!
A closeup of her stunning work !
I LOOOVE my new Christmas quiltie, it will be displayed for Christmas !!!
And look at the gorgeous book cover that she made with May Britt's design, I love it !!!
It's already being used with my patchwork ideas and projects !!!
And she also embroidered a cute pincushion that I'll treasure
because it's so cute that I think it's a pity to use, at least for now...
And the cutest embroidered card ever !!! Thank you !!
And look at the fantastic extras that she included with her great work !!!
A gorgeous Bag magazine, postcards and a book of the city where she lives: Hannover.
And a cute note ! I'm already making a project from the magazine!
She also included other great extras !!!
Fabric in gorgeous patterns with pink that I love !!! White trim and thread, gorgeous colors of embroidery thread, embroidery needles and lots of yummy german sweets that I've already tried and were superb !!!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU SO MUCH ANETT !!!!!
You made my day, week and month !!! I absolutelly love ALL your gifties !!!!
Thank you for being so creative and generous !!! I wish you were spoiled like you spoiled me !!!
These are the gifties I made for my Stitcher's Angel.
She's a special lady, very sweet, and her favorite color is lime green, but I found out about this after I had made my first giftie: the red needlecase.
After that I included her favorite color in the other projects I made for her.
Helen's bag in my partner's colors...
A pincushion with a modified Gum Tree Designer's pattern, and a huge needlecase with pockets...
And this is the whole parcel I sent her. Hope she likes her pressies !!!
