A Season of Giving...

A thoughtful gift from Sherry at Createology blog
 While I'm recuperating, I have received beautiful Christmas gifts from
dear blog friends. While I have gifts of my own all ready to send, alas
they have not yet been wrapped and packaged. This is taking a little longer
than I expected and it's a bit frustrating that I have no energy right now.
I'm so grateful for those who have taken the time to share their Christmas
spirit with me. Sherry sent this beautiful charm fob (already installed on a
favorite pair of embroidery scissors). It's decorated on both sides of the charm!
 Marydon outdid herself again this year. Look at the beautiful combination
of fabric yo yos and buttons that came together into a sweet little ornament.
She also included a chandelier crystal that I'll definitely use in a future project.
 Marydon always includes a taste tea bag attached to her greeting cards.
One of these days, she and I will sit and share a cuppa in the same room.
I'm looking forward to that. She and I will have a lot to chat about, for sure.

Thank you, Sherry and Marydon. Your gifts are appreciated more than you 
know. I hope you like the surprises I'll be sending your way soon. xoxo

I'm not clear to visit with my Coffee Club chums yet...not 'til I'm stronger.
Today is another chance for me to accomplish a few lofty, pre-Christmas goals.
Wish me luck, will ya? I sure could use it right about now.

Buttons said...

Beautiful and so special. I love the button ornament, Marydon. I think I will try and make one sometime.

Beautiful gifts, all of them.
I've had a little catch-up and I'm sorry to hear that you've had surgery and have been under the weather. I hope that you are feeling well and rested in time for Christmas and that you will be able to enjoy the holidays.

Greetings, Donna,
I love the 'kindness' charm...I'm always reminding my students to be kind to one another.

I know how surgery can really take it's toll on one's energy level. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Merry Christmas ~Natalie

But you do have energy...you have the energy you need to continue to heal, no more, no less. That's your focus...healing. Be well soon.

Merry Christmas Donna and Handsome, Your presents are awesome and Marydon is a wonderful friend. I got one of her tea bags when I won her book she gave away that once I started reading it I didn't want to put it down. We had freezing rain and now the snow is falling so we will see how much we get in the morning. I like the quilt you made for Handsome. Take care and continue to heal from surgery. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Donna, I am seeing your blog(s) for the first time, having come from Little Acorns (Brenda Riddle). I read your Blogger profile. I live in WI. Good for you! And I love cross-stitch, so I shall be back to look around more. Your blog is lovely, what I've seen so far. ~Joyce in the frozen north
