In last weeks mail I received a surprise parcel from Roswitha from Blauraute blog for Christmas. Roswitha and I have become friends through email and have exchanged parcels for awhile now, but this one came as a wonderful surprise.
I really love this beautiful crochet doily that she made. I'm not sure what this is called in German, but I call this filet crochet. This is one type of crochet that I haven't tried, but I really like how it looks.
This doily looks so pretty on my kitchen table underneath this Christmas cake stand that belonged to my Mom.
Roswitha also sent me this cute redwork snowman pillow. Since he is a snowman and not just for Christmas, he will stay out so I can enjoy him through the winter months.
Here is a view of the back. The pillow fastens with 3 heart shaped buttons. I really enjoyed this package Roswitha. Thank you so much for the lovely Christmas surprise.
Then a few days later I got another surprise parcel from my friend, Val in Canada. She made me this cute bag with kitten faces. This little bag is just perfect for holding everything I need for a redwork project.
Val also included these two balls of yarn. She knows how much I like to knit and crochet, and I'll have some fun making something from this pretty yarn. Val is really an awesome knitter, and you can see some of her projects here on Ravelry. Thanks for the surprise, Val.
I hope that your Christmas is full of surprises, too.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
