Wrapping up before the Big Day

Good Morning Dear Friends!  I got up this morning and got cracking on the last two gifts.  This one just needed all the ends woven in and a ribbon tied 'round...


And just needed to knit the toe of sock #2...


And that concludes the 2010 edition of the Handmade Holiday Gift List!  Hurrah!


I received some wonderful gifts in the mail yesterday from some really wonderful friends.
Dear Julianne sent me two ornaments, one for last year and one for this year...how incredibly sweet is that?  Thank you so much Julianne, you are so kind and thoughtful and I just absolutely adore them!


And thoughtful and talented Harmien sent me this clever ornament.  I just love it!  Thank you Harmien for being such a dear friend!


And then this pretty card with some equally pretty red thread came from sweet Michele W.  Thank you so much Michele for thinking of me, you always make me smile and it seems we're often on the "same wavelength"!


I feel so lucky to have made some really wonderful friendships through blogging.
Thank you everyone.
And a BIG HEARTFELT THANK YOU to each of you who stop by and visit me here.
Wishing each and every one of you a Very Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year!
I hope this holiday season finds you surrounded by peace and love.
See you all in the new year!
Hugs, Staci
