Christmas In February

I am probably known for my lateness in gift giving. Despite my best efforts
I never seem to get the package in the mail on time. And as much as I love Christmas, I find I am usually not in the mood to celebrate it until mid January, when the frenzy of the season has subsided. I guess I have always followed a different calendar than everyone else. So when a friend says they are going to be late sending a gift it makes me giddy with anticipation, I just love extending a celebration! That being said I was beyond happy when Erin sent my Christmas present last week. I think this piece she made was well worth the wait! And not only did she make this for me she sent flying monkeys and plush scum! I have said it before and I will say it again, my friends are just the best.
Merry Christmas!

(This is made of wood and glass with fabric applique on the outside, it is amazing).

We really are two peas in a pod, aren't we?!?! I am so glad that you were not only excited that the package was late, but are thrilled with the results! It's the most sewing I have ever done. A special piece for a special friend.

P.S. I kept two flying monkeys for myself. That way, if you sent two flying monkeys over to get Ollie, I would have two to battle yours.

P.S.S Those pics you took of the piece are much better than what I took. Thanks!
