YIPPPPPPEEEE…Santa Sack Goodies And My Friend Loretta

Yesterday was our day to open our Santa Sack goodies and I forgot!!! Can you imagine after all this time?!  Here’s my sack full of goodies…..004
This wonderful wall hanging titled “Flirting With Flowers”, and hand quilted I might add..so pretty!  It fits exactly in my entry way, so come Spring I know what will be hanging there.006
Then a very sweet mug rug and two mugs, a wonderful quilt calendar, some sweet fabric pieces, 10 inch squares of Antique Faire, and a jelly roll of Hometown….Sharon how did you know I wanted both of these lines???!!!!
007
Look at that cute little snowman bag, and tucked inside was this wonderful Mary Englebreit fabric with some very pretty floss to go along… this is so me!!!!
010 POUCHES!!!!   Love them all…a sweet tissue holder, a zippered pouch and a perfect one for credit cards…expertly made I might add!  Also, a mini sewing work station, with a place to hold your thimble and a magnet on the side for your needle…my favorite part of this, handmade and signed by Sharon’s dad.  This means so much that you gave this to me Sharon.008
I know what you are thinking…there’s more?  Yep, sweet flower pincushions (one for a spool of thread), tape measure, marking pencils, letter beads,  a wonderful bag of findings and a sweet key ring.….also not making the picture were some much needed needles and pins!!!  Thanks Sharon..you are one great Santa!!!!
Whewwwwwwww, that’s a load of goodness, then the mail comes today and I get ano011ther parcel from my other Santa Sack partner Amanda!!!!  I am a very lucky girl.  The birdhouse was not wrapped, so no cheating on my part.  How cute is that birdhouse, and the rest will wait to be opened on Xmas day. Thanks Amanda….another great Santa!!!
Now some bragging about my friend Loretta.  She makes the most beautiful yard art380786_2339971263150_1365981901_31895795_1330087585_n from found pieces of glassware and metal.  So amazingly beautiful.  391044_2339970303126_1365981901_31895792_314474561_n


I have some others that are glass that I haven’t taken pictures of and the most amazing bird feeder ever…..that will be on my next post!!!  She came to our friendship group a couple weeks ago and every single piece she brought was scooped up!!!  Loretta you are so talented.
Well, guess I have blabbed enough….hope you all have a great weekend and are getting all your Xmas shopping done!!!
