Usually I have to spell out exactly what it is and where to get it and how much it costs for my Christmas present(s) from DH Dave. But this year, he told me (and a week before Christmas, too, not Christmas Eve!), he had bought me a "thoughtful" gift. And then he kept bugging me to try and guess it..of course, saying the whole time I would never guess it in a million years. (aren't DH's the craziest sometimes?). I, naturely, took the high road, and said "No...'cause I know you will get upset if I do guess it." LOL! Well, he was right. I would have never guessed that he went and got me this without me being there with him.

And the stitchery kit with not one of my favorite things, but two....reindeer and sheep! Too cute! and look at all those little tiny green, red and white felt reindeer! Too much fun!
Thank you, Anne Marieke, for all your great choices of gifts for me, but especially for the beautiful hand-stitched birdies!

Remember my Snow Angel from the Snowbound quilt? Postcard Cuties has its very own Snow Angel, too. In fact, Anne (Bunny Hill Designs) may have "borrowed" this one from Postcard Cuties. These patchwork and applique blocks have captured me in their simplicity. Here she is my Postcard Cutie Snow Angel:

I thought it rather funny that there were two "crafty" type stores, but also one food store...I guess a girl's gotta eat to keep up her energy level to keep stitching!
And the Andirondack type chairs at the top...lots of little pieces, but they did turn out cute!

I am going to miss receiving my little snowbuddies each month from Anne at Bunny Hill Designs. But, hold on...Anne says she has something in the works for another freebie Block of the Month next year.
I almost forgot to post a picture of this one, since she has been finished since November. It was just by chance that I saw a little blurb from Anne on the Snowbound Flickr group that we could request the December block early. Anne had asked that anyone who finished wait until the last block was released.

I looked at Gail Wilson's website yesterday and she has a lot of her doll patterns/kits on sale at 50% off.
I think this one is going to be the last "doll" for a while. Although fun to make, they do take quite a bit of time. So back to some stitching or quilting!
