GIFT EXCHANGE PART 2

I posted a few days ago about the items I made for a gift exchange.  You can read about them here.  Nancy of Tom Miner Folk Art and Quilts was the recipient.  Now I have received my package in the mail.  I was very surprised to find out that Debbie of Woolen Sails had my name for the exchange.  She made a needlepunch prim pocket, two needlepunch snowmen ornies, and two embroidered ornies that are filled with balsam.  Debbie used a design by Bonnie Sullivan and turned it into these wonderful items.
The prim pocket has a cord handle attached with rusty jingle bells on the side.  The back part of the pocket is made from wool as well as the lining.  The needlepunch snowman have red wool backings.  Rusty jingle bells on the front. Wonderful that she could taken elements from the pattern and use her creative mind to make all of these items.

That was not all that was in the package.  She included a simple snowman face design for rug hooking and included wool strips.  I have a rug hooking frame, needles, and an instruction book by Tara Darr but have never attempted the technique.  Debbie is encouraging me to give it a try.  She included a needlepunch pattern plus a stitchery pattern and an embroidered necklace pouch pattern. And a fat quarter of fabric.


Thank you, Debbie.  I am still doing The Happy Dance.
