Christmas charm squares from Sandi - and other nice things too!

Look at all the wonderful Christmas goodies Sandi from A Legacy of Stitches sent me - not for winning a giveaway or for a swap gift, but just because she is such a nice and generous person.

Christmas gifts from SandiA wonderful and very colorful little package of beautiful Christmas fabric charm squares, plus two fat quarters of cheerful red and green.

Christmas gifts from SandiI had to put the Snoopy charm on top because Peanuts is my all time favorite cartoon, and you have to admit, all the characters are just so darn cute and lovable.

Christmas gifts from Sandi...Sandi also sent me all the necessary parts to make the same JOY stocking that she had made as a giveaway prize which I DID NOT win! Isn't she something? And they are all cut out and ready for me to have the fun of putting them together into a beautiful Christmas stocking.

Christmas gifts from SandiIf you want to see Sandi's finished stocking, just click HERE and take a look. While you're there, you might want to read the comments which were Christmas memories - one allowed each day until Christmas for an entry into the giveaway. You could learn a few things about me if you find my comments! And then click HERE to see who won the JOY stocking - you won't believe it! But make sure you come back because there's more!

Christmas gifts from SandiAlong with all that Christmas loveliness, Sandi tucked into my package two of her own patterns AND the wool to make them! She does such lovely work with wool making penny rugs, which I had never heard of until I found her website. I am very much looking forward to trying my hand at these little projects.

I envision the fat quarters and the charms becoming something fun and festive like maybe a table runner or a wall hanging of some sort. I'll let some ideas stew in my brain and maybe by next fall I'll be ready to pull them out and make something lovely from all this loveliness. Thanks Sandi!

This is my 499th post here at Hooked On Needles, so my next post will announce the winner of my 500th post giveaway. I'm not telling when it will happen, but I will say you still have a little time to sign up for it! Don't wait too long though because I do try to post something here every day! I'll turn off comments on that post when time is up. Good luck!

Happy Stitching!

  • Ooooh, you are indeed lucky and Sandi quite generous. I'll be checking out her blog, and perusing her patterns. I like the rose pincushion pattern I spied in your pic.

  • What a lovely post, Mary Grace. Somehow I missed this. You e-mailed that you were doing the post and I came right over but it was still the Jan. 15 post. I told myself "come back again". Then I got busy sorting my wooly stuff and I have stayed focused on that. Take a peek at my blog and you'll see the results of my labor. :-) You know, it's funny, but I just thought you might like the Peanuts square and yet I had no idea that you really liked him!! Meant to be!!
