a little joy!

At the end of last week I received my amazing pillow in the mail from the super talented Erin of Why Not Sew?  I simply love everything about this sweet pillow.  The design with all the pretty fabrics, the cute deer, tree and Joy applique.  Isn't it the perfect pillow!?!  It sure does bring me joy every time I look at it. 

Then to top all that, Erin added the ever so cute scallop crochet edging in the prettiest aqua.  Be still my heart!!

Erin also sent a sweet little peg girl and mushroom.  She is the cutest!!

She also made me a crochet aqua ornament.  Here it is already hanging on my tree.  :)  I was completly spoiled!  Thanks so much, Erin!!

My tree...we are now all ready for Christmas!  I loved adding all my new ornaments!!

This week-end in the evenings I started on the Scrumptious Cottage.   Mahriam of Three Owls created the pattern and made a pillow for the Pillow Talk Swap.   She was so kind and sent me the pattern and instructions in the mail a couple weeks ago.  I'm so glad I am now finally able to work on it.

I love this little cottage more every time I work on it!

I hope everyone is having a fabulous week so far!

    1. Hi Anita,

      Thanks for your sweet words. Mahriam had sent me the pattern in the mail. She doesn't have any for sale right now. I'm pretty sure she is working on doing a digital file, but not sure when she is planning on having it available.

  8. Your little house is gorgeous, Kerri. Erin has made you a beautiful cushion.

    Your Scrumptious cottage is adorable!!! I sure hope Mahriam turns it into a pattern.
