Gifts and Gratitude

For Christmas this year, much to my surprise there were a few extra gifts that came in the post.
A small group of blogger's got together and each sent a gift to make my Christmas extra special.
It is such a thoughtful gesture, that really touched me, and bought home the spirit of Christmas caring and sharing. These four women made a significant difference to my Christmas this year. The first Christmas without my mother. They will always have a special place in my heart, and my gratitude for their caring and thoughtfulness.

These gifts will always be treasured

From Alison of Cardygirl.
A gorgeous Bareroots pattern, and a lovely tube of very nice hand cream.

From Peg of Happy in Quilting .
A wonderful Christmas stitchery with the cutest little mouse laying at the base of the pudding, and a quilted and embroidered journal & cover.

From Dale of DayDaysblog
A wonderful stitchery with "Celebrate life always" embroidered on it, and a stitchery kit, with embroidery, threads and fabrics. I can't wait to make it.

From Donna of Chookyblue
A calender of Donna's fantastic photo's for 2010. They are glorious pictures, and I will be thinking of her every time I look at the calender.

I know that I am a very lucky woman to receive all these amazing gifts. I want to say "Thank You" to Alison, Peg, Dale and Donna for all thinking of me at Christmas. They are all wonderful and very talented women. Thank You.

Wishing Everyone a wonderful 2010.
Hope you all have a great New Years Eve.
