Yesterday we had a discussion on our stitching list about nutcrackers since someone of the list is making all the Prairie Schooler Nutcrackers for ornaments for Christmas. Her first one is finished and adorable. I mentioned my nutcracker collection and this special present I received this year from a dear lady in my quilt group named Joke (pronounced Yoka in Dutch). She surprised me with it and I absolutely love it! I have never had anyone make me a quilt before since I myself am a quilter. It was made more special that she knows I love nutcrackers. Thank you so much Joke for a special gift that I will treasure forever!
