I must have been VERY good :)

Oh my goodness.  Christmas is still a week away and I have already received some incredible presents.  I don't know what I did to deserve such generosity.  DSO's son and d-i-l gifted me with these beautiful wools.  Laenne (d-i-l) happened to be at a craft show in Michigan where Kris Miller of Spruce Ridge Studios was vending.  A girl can never have too much wool, can she?  From DSO's daughter I received a Heavens to Betsy gift certificate.  I guess his kids know me well!  I also received a Visa gift card.  Perhaps even more wool???

DSO's son and fiancee gave me the coolest wine stopper.  So hard to photograph but so very cute!  I just wonder how it will work on a box of wine {grin}.

Dear friend Dolly (who if you remember, adopted my Eema) had this wonderful throw made for me, all from pictures I had posted on my blog.  It measures 3' x 5' and will help keep me toasty this winter.  Isn't this just the most thoughtful gift?

I can't believe a week from today Christmas will be just about over.  I thought I would be done with everything a week ago.  I guess it wasn't meant to be.  I still have much to do but I am thankful that I am not nearly as stressed as I normally am!  Gifts didn't get made ~ oh, well, oh, hell :)  Maybe next year . . . if I start in January!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Pug hugs :)
