Marie's Gift

Marie made me the most gorgeous pinkeep for a birthday gift. She's so talented. I just can't imagine making things that look so perfect! She stitched a Mary Gary design :D
She also made this cute pin...
And this neat needle/thread holder, how cool is this?
I wish I lived closer Marie, that would be so fun to get together. I love the exchanges, I've met the most amazing people! You made my birthday a special day indeed! :)
In other news, I received the Q-Snap Quilt Frame, it's AWESOME! I wish I would have bought one sooner, it's so easy to use, move around, store. Very handy for someone with a small space :) I started tying a baby quilt on it last night and it really works well for me. Yay for good products!

How do you get that little, thin border around the pics?
You are just too sweet, really! I hope that your birthday is AMAZING and I wish that I could come on over and enjoy a piece of cake with you...too far to walk! LOL
