A finish and a couple Christmas gifts

I wanted to share a finish I did this week. (This is my mom's other towel.. she now has a set.)

Stitching for me during the last two weeks has been almost nil....
Stress and other things going on has helped with that one.

Hubby got me PC Stitch Pro and said I have a little more money(30.00) that I can spend on myself.

I got two special gifts from my sister.

This kit that she just thought was too cute to leave behind. (so she says... I have 3 more years before I hit 40 but I already feel this way but don't say anything to her.)









She also gave me this craft bag.... wish the pics were better.








Here is what the top looks like it is so beautiful.



Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a very very Happy New Year.

Love the towel and what a great gift for your Mom.

Your new bag is very pretty and looks like it will hold a lot of stash. Have fun with the PC Stitch.

It looks like you had a wonderful Christmas. Here's to a Happy New Year. And I passed 40 quite a while ago. I know all about "patchwork"! ;-)

LOLOL at the after 40 piece! I love it because I turn 40 on January 11th. I'm counting down to 'doomsday'...lol I so understand the stress this week. I have things to post on my blog but I'm too tired to get to it! Maybe tomorrow. :-)

I love both those pieces! Being an "over 40 Grandma" they both apply to me.

Thanks for sharing. :)
