Birthday Gift for Jenn

Jenn has let me know that she has received my birthday package for her - her birthday is tomorrow, but I am glad she opened it early ;-) Jenn is a Harry Potter fan, and I have had this just sitting around for a few months waiting to stitch it for her. I chose to put it on a wooden box for her jewelry or trinkets... Happy Birthday Jenn!


Hedwig's Four Patch Box

The Sampler Girl

Silkweaver 28 ct Lugana Solo, Crescent Colours Floss


Snow - lots and lots of snow today... Mike drove down to Massachusetts in it to pick up our middle niece. She is visiting with us for the weekend (age 16).

Stitched on today: Finished a gift (whew!!)

That is the neatest thing! I asked the SBEBB for a magic exchange, but I haven't heard anything yet. This would be just the kind of thing!

Hey! That's the same pattern my daughter is working on. I'd like to be able to finish it so beautifully. Are there directions somewhere?

Hi Carol,
That looks awesome on a box - what a clever idea.

Your Quaker Christmas is coming along splendidly - I'm jealous - I wish I were as far as you!
