Coming up to Christmas

Two parcels arrived from our friend Caroline and Rob yesterday.  One was for SinterKlaus (Dec. 5) and the other was two Christmas parcels (Dec. 25).  These included two wonderful "soft" gifts,

Aren't they cute?  And she sent the patterns, in case I need to make some for next year. 

In the morning, my CTA group had their annual Cookie and ornament exchange.  I cannot show you mine as I also made one for my dear quilty friend whom I know reads here, but what it said was "Relax - Christmas will come regardless".  Isn't that just so timely?
Almond Boysenberry squares.  New recipe for me, from Canadian Living magazine.  And the ornament that Pat W. made for me,

I found this hilarious fabric and have been making pillowcases as Christmas gifts.  Can you guess the name?  "All I want for Christmas...."  How perfect!

And the postal lady brought my little quarterly pleasure, yesterday, as well.  These are from the Danish line called Basics - 6 fat quarters each quarter.  My little treat to me.
That's dark green in the upper left corner and brown in the lower left corner.  Still making string pieced neutrals 8.5" squares.  Sigh!
