Christmas presents made and received.....

I have mentioned in the fall that I was not able to show you some of the things I was working on. Now that some of my family have received their gifts, I can show you a few items.

I made these Paddington Bear stockings for my nieces to kids ~ Haali and Mitchell. I filled them with small gifts this year for their Christmas gifts.

In May of last year, I made a WIP (work in progress) roll for my friend Diane. My niece saw it on the blog and said she wanted one. So I finished a second one just like it as she told me that was what she wanted and it was her Christmas present.
This is the roll closed and tied.

I used a pretty sampler fabric from Moda for the inside of the roll.

And the outside is a mix of autumn colors from my fabric stash.

I stitched up a bright green letter H for Haali this year and attached it to the outside of a little wooden box that Jos painted in red.

Haali loves bright colors and I lined the inside of the box with this fun Hoffman fabric.

What pretty gifts - I think my favorite is the little red box. What a cute idea!

Since I am in New York, I can tell you they loved the things you made for them. Good work Miss Pickles.
The elf really worked hard this year.
Love you, Mom

What beautiful thoughtful gifts! Want to adopt me?! LOL! I loved the WIP (work in progress) roll - I don't think I have every seen one. What do you use it for? (I know that is probably a silly question!) Susan in SC

Great gifts, Heidi! I love the use of those Modas. I have a hard time resisting Moda fabrics, don't you?
Have a Happy New Year!

Heidi, first of all I would like to say thank you for this enjoyable blog and also for your comments to me.
Happy stitching to you for 2008! I hope I can read your thoughts in the future, too.

I also like the Hofman fabric you used, I have never seen that!
And the stockings are cute, too.
Grats to them!

Kristen said...

Well all of these gifts were treasured! I had no idea that you would actually make me a roll and I love it! I now have something to keep my stitching for the patterns you sent me earlier in as I work them! Thank you so much for everything, we all enjoyed them! XOXOXOXOXO

Paddington!! He is just sooo cute. Nice job.

Beautiful roll Heidi. Love the fabric combinations. You have a wonderful eye for colour.

Love the box. How fun to open it and see that amazing fabric.

I love the WIP (work in progress) roll. What are the measurements? I think I can wing one.
