Hi Staci,

I'm suppose to be frogging out
a bit of stitching that I did
today which I stitched in the
wrong spot on one of my current projects but instead I decided
that I'd rather visit with you.

How cute is that sweet, fuzzy
heart!! And the ribbon that
you used as a hanger is just
a perfect match. Someone is
going to receive this little
treasure and no doubt squeal
in delight.

You have a real knack for
putting the right things
together to make the perfect
gift Staci. Beautiful soap
and your lovely hand made
spa cloths all neatly, sweetly
tied together with an dainty
white ribbon equals a very
thoughtful gift.

Congrats on finishing your
pretty sweater as well. It's
lovely.

Sigh!! So I guess I have to
go frog some stitching now.

Cheers!

Julianne said...

Staci,

What thoughtful and beautiful gifts you've fashioned with your talented hands!

I just love that trim you've used for the heart's hanger. It compliments the heart just perfectly.

Roberta said...

Daffycat said...

Really lovely gifts, Staci! I still adore those felted heart ornaments ~ simply darling!

Vonna said...

You always pay such attention to details and it always looks wonderful...not matter what's being wrapped, ribboned and sent. Lovely top to bottom and side to side!

Carol R said...

There are going to be some lucky recipients of your goodies this Christmas!

Lois said...

What a sweet heart! Some very lucky people are receiving some very nice gifts!

Siobhan said...

Beautiful knitting! I was telling my daughter about your hand made gifts. She's a beginning knitter and I keep prompting her to join Ravelry, etc.--it'd be nice for her to do some knitted gifts for friends rather than buying stuff--easier on the college budget, plus it's a more meaningful gift. Thanks for the inspiration!

WendyJo said...

I'll cherish the heart ornament very much Staci! Thank you!

Love the soaps, cloths, and sweater....you've been a busy little bee!!!

Michele B. said...

That little heart is picture perfect, Staci - it will make its recipient's heart jump for joy. Love the sweater - wear it soon!
