What a wonderful Christmas!

Hi all! I hope each one of your had a blessed Christmas. Above is a picture in the dark of our Christmas tree, a tall, skinny tree, just right for a tight spot.




I received the most wonderful package from Monika in Germany at www.luenetraum.blogspot.com. She has a wonderful blog! She was also my lady to send a secret santa gift to, and she blogged about it. She speaks only German, so she had a translator send me a letter, wonderful chocolate, pictures and a guide book to her wonderful German town. In addition, she sent very pretty trims for my crazy quilt, with a lovely card. Also included was a cozy teacup stitchery pattern. I am so spoiled! Thank you so much, Monika, for all the lovely gifts and my DH thinks we must come and see Germany.



This darling little doll came from Lyn at www.bluebirdquilts-lyn.blogspot.com. This precious little doll is lucky to me! She is on the dining room table in a place of honor. Thank you Lyn, I love her!




And this was my secret santa gift! Anne Heidi at www.lappemor.blogspot.com was my secret santa! She sent me the above most lovely bag, it has pockets and zippers and lots of room! I love it!





She also sent the so very cute fabric above...yummy! Coasters made from fabric I had admired on her blog, chocolate from Norway mmmmmmmm, and a sweet card. Thank you so much, I love it all!






This is the only thing I have done remotely quilt-ish in a couple of weeks. I had overtime pay at the hospital, so I grabbed all the overtime I could, and also got ready for Christmas. I am such a lucky lady, and of course am spoiled rotten. Hope you all had such a wonderful day too.
Hugs from Julie

Tree - lovin' it! Monika is a kind spirit. You attract the best people, Julie. It's just who you are. I'm not sure how it is that I'm here? Maybe you're also a little on tilt and warped!

What I love about this post isn't simply the hot little red number, because you know I love that, but its the whole entire theme. The Blog of Abundance ~ very much the wonderful spirit of Christmas.

Your little red and white quilt is darling. I can't think of a season that doesn't make me want to use red. ;-)

What lovely gifts from around the globe! Wouldn't it be fabulous if you really did get to go to Germany or another country?! Have I told you? My daughters are signed on for a trip with their German teacher to travel 4 countries (Germany included) this coming June!

I'm just still drinking my morning coffee in the glow of the white winter snow...thinking of you. ;-) Hugs....

Lovely gifts from near and far, Julie! You deserve to be spoiled, my friend. I'm so glad you had a wonderous Christmas!!

Julie, this is so cute and the one with the triangles is too. I agree that a single thickness binding seems to work best for these smaller projects...now I'm wanting to make another one!
