Christmas Joy

 
Now I can share the pillow that I made for my sister -in-law, Joy.
Joy gave me a wonderful feedsack for my birthday a few years ago and I thought it would make a wonderful background for this Buttermilk Basin design. Is that considered re-gifting? :) I don't think that she minded lol.


Here is another view of Christmas Joy - Orion sporting his new Bears jersey and enjoying his favorite toy from his stocking this year.


And this is how we all feel today - exhausted from hosting 25 for Christmas Dinner, but extremely happy and content :) Hope that you are feeling the same today.

If they obey and serve him, they will spend the rest of their days in prosperity
and their years in contentment.
~Job 36:11

Back to work tomorrow, but then it is the weekend :)
Blessings, Patti

The feed sack works perfectly for the background. Nicely done. I wonder if the linen toweling would work to do something like this.

Typing from Packer territory--- Love the pillow and clothes for the pup. The pillow is wool applique, right?!? Just darling.

That pillow is beautiful and what a wonderful way to regift - I'm sure she loved it. Oh my goodness Orion is adorable both in his little jersey and all tuckered out taking a nap - just so sweet.
hugs - Karen
