Advent Calendar Blog Hop : Day 3

Welcome!

My most recent holiday stitching includes these lovely filigree patterns, which I plan to finish into ornaments.
These patterns (and many, many more beautiful patterns) are offered by Claire, on her blog as freebies.  The tree pattern can be found here: http://gazette94.blogspot.com/2008/11/grille-gratuite-66.html, and the heart pattern can be found here: http://gazette94.blogspot.com/2009/02/grille-gratuite-74.html 

For this year's blog hop, Jo asked us to share our "Best Present Ever".
That's a toughie.  I have received many lovely gifts over the years ... however, one gift I received is extra special to me.  It is a little ceramic angel that my Grandmother made for me many years ago.  Every year I hang it in a special place on my tree, and I think of her.  She is no longer with us, but all of the things she taught me and shared with me continue to enrich my life.



Wishing you a safe and happy holiday filled with family and friends, joy and stitching!
