Some pretty nifty gifts

I got some pretty nifty gifts for xmas. Above is my new scissor holder! My friend Joan's husband made this for her to give me. It is perfect! And being used I must say!


Also got this really great wool kit and pattern from my mom. Isn't that a drop dead gorgeous table topper for xmas! I hope I can do it justice.

And she got these great patterns that the center wool part swaps out for the seasons! The pattern and wool are packaged. I provide the fabric for the outside part. These will be fun to make! The patterns actually have one for each month. I thought I'd start with one for each holiday!

I'm still looking at the scissor holder, even showed it to DH. That's a subtle hint for him. I think I'd need several with my collection. Love all your wonderful gifts.
