I am finally just about over the flu. I still have a bit of a lingering cough, but I feel much better. I want to share some wonderful stitchy gifts I received from wonderful stitchy friends.
First, from my best stitchy friend, Johanna, I received a subscription to Just Cross Stitch Magazine:
I am hoping to receive this issue in the mail as my first issue, but if not, I can view it on-line. The subscription also included the last 2 years of digital issues. So I have been having a lot of fun looking at all the patterns in the back issues.
Next is a beautiful handmade project bag from Karen:
It is Beautiful with all those fairy frogs! I love it!
Next is a gift from a fellow-blogger- Angela over at Pretty Little Things in a Box.
A pretty stitched pincushion and some stitchy supplies all the way from Singapore. What a sweetie.
I also received this wonderful knitting book from Sue:
It’s a wonderful book full of great knitting projects. I love the cute hat on the front. The project that really caught my attention is this scarf:
I love how soft and lacy it looks. I will have to pick up the perfect yarn when I am ready to start a new knit project.
I received these wonderful gifts from a new stitchy friend, Annie:
3 wonderful pixie patterns to add to my collection and a gorgeous froggy scissor fob. He is so cute and I can’t wait to stitch these Pixies.
This next gift I received from Stitches N Things as part of the stitchers club. I always look forward to the wonderful gift Deb comes up with for her stitchy club members.
A beautiful wooden box with the option to add a stitched piece to the center. I rather like the the Stitches N Things name and logo. And a miniature thread holder scissor fob. So cute! I also received a $10 Gift Certificate for the shop. And since this month is my birthday month, I will use it when I go on my 25% off shopping spree (also part of the stitchers club rewards). Can’t wait to shop there! I already have a list going 🙂
My last stitchy gift is from my wonderful hubby:
He bought me this shelf for Christmas with the thought that I could put my yarns in it just like a yarn shop. Isn’t he sweet! I’ve already added a few yarns that I had in bags here in the house. The rest of my yarn is in bins out in the garage. I think this week I will go out to the garage and bring in some of those yarns I haven’t seen in a while. Maybe it will help me use them up if I can see them 🙂
I hope I haven’t forgotten anything. Thank you for visiting and seeing what I have been up to. What stitchy gifts did you get for Christmas?

YOU must have been a very good girl this year! You really cleaned up!
I guess I was, Johanna. I’m a very lucky girl 🙂
Lots of fun Gifties! And, even though I’ve only known you online and for a short while…I’m guessing you’re almost always good!! =D
Mostly Annie. 😉
what wonderful gifts and friends 🙂 your hubby is so sweet and thoughtful, the shelf looks lovely and it will be great for displaying all your yarns. 🙂
Yes, great friends and sweet hubby. I can’t wait to get out in the garage and gather up more yarn. But today is around -40 degrees and I just can’t make myself go out there today. Saturday is supposed to be 36, so that may be the best day 🙂
wow… so many wonderful gifts..love them all especially the cupboard.. what a smart idea.. it really is handy for all yarn and supplies… it does look like you’ve a little yarn shop in your house.. 😀
Thanks, Angela. I love the pincushion you made. I have some pretty fancy pins in it right now 🙂 The cupboard is pretty awesome. Can’t wait to dig out some of my yarns I haven’t seen in a long time and maybe get inspired to use them.
Wow you’ve been spoilt!!!
I sure have been, Dani. 🙂
What fun gifties and I LOVE your new yarn shelf. Good choice, hubbie!
I still haven’t had a chance to get to my bins in the garage to bring in more yarn for my new shelf. I just love it and can’t wait to see it bursting with yarn 🙂
