Finish and Presents

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! We did minus driving in heavy rain when you can barely see the car in front of you.

I finished Snowflake Serenade by Country Cottage Needleworks before we left for Christmas. It looks a little blue in the picture, but it's not like that in real life. I loved the way it turned out. I can hear the songs in my head every time I look at it : )

I also wanted to share some pictures of what my sister made for me and hubby for Christmas. I thought she did a great job!

First up: Christmas coasters.
I will probably borrow her idea and do these next year as gifts : )

Next, she made us this (I don't know what to call it). The M can stand for many things: Melissa, Matt (hubby's name), or Mitchell (hubby's last name).

Finally, I made this as part of my sister's Christmas present:

And, I made this for my mother-in-law. It is Single Rose by Dimensions. I didn't get a picture of it framed, but it turned out beautiful!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year!
