Santa's Been....

I was so excited to open my SSCS yesterday....Pia in Denmark has been a secret swap partner for me before, I just knew my secret gift would be something very special..
I love it so much Pia...thank you, thank you...I don't think anything could have been more perfect for me than this beautiful doll quilt. The repro fabrics are beautiful...I see a few there that I have and are favourites of mine.
Beautifully made from your heart...I will treasure this forever.

I hope you don't mind Pia, but I'd like to share what you wrote to's so special!

Pia wrote...
.....Recently I got Kathleen Tracy's book "Remembering Adelia - Quilts Inspired by Her Diary" and the first thought that crossed my mind was "Julia would love this book".
The second was "I want to make all of those little quilts".
When I learned that you were to be my swap partner for SSCS 2011 I decided to make the first one for you.
It's called Prairie Points Doll Quilt...

                                 These are my, oh so cute, tree ornaments from Pia....Mr and Mrs Claus..

I hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas....Blessings..♥
