Thanks you, Claire!

Nothing is more special than to receive a hand made gift… I think we quilters know this better than anyone!  I mean think of all the time, thought, labour, not to mention the money that goes into a project…So imagine my surprise when I unwrapped this gift from Claire! 

The sweetest dang lamb mat EVER…from one woolie to another!


Absolutely adorable!!  Would you believe that Claire even hand dyed the wool herself!!  Love that mottled gold in the background…and the pale beige stars pull this whole piece together!P1230184

Love the lamb right down to her sweet little toes! And look at those wee itty-bitty stitches…you probably can’t see them they are so small!


Claire took the 4” needle punch pattern ‘Star Lamb’ by Teresa Kogut, expanded it and created this wonderful mat…just for ME!

Now I need to find the perfect place to hang my little lambikins!  Someplace that will scream LOOK AT ME…aren’t I cute?!


Because really, there is nothing sweeter than a hand made gift!

Thanks SEW much, Claire!!  I love it!

Have a Fun Friday and Happy Quilting!~P
