Small and Sweet New Treasures

Last week when my mom gave me my new quilt, she gave me a few other little gifts.

The first was this wonderful Dresden plate trivet.  She had spotted one on NanaCompany and couldn’t wait to make one of her own.

I am having a hard time thinking of putting a bubbling casserole on it… but it looks perfect on my kitchen table.

She also made me a new pincushion out of a scrap of Lecien Old New strawberry print fabric.  She found the tutorial for the “tomato” pincushion on Martha Stewart.

Last but not least, she made me a new needlebook from a tutorial found on here on nanaCompany.

It’s a sweet and perfect place to keep all my needles (pins too).

I love it so much, it a perfect gift for my few friends that sew.  I only wish more of my friends DID sew because my Christmas gifts would be all wrapped up.

I felt like I had made off like a bandit when I left my mom’s home with all my gifts and treasures.  Thank you Mom, for thoroughly spoiling me.
