Joy-filled Fingers

Today finds me finishing up a gift that has brought me great joy to make.  I've used pieces of a vintage quilt, a fragment of an old lace trimmed pillow case and some lovely cream buttons.

There are some gifts that just seem to sing from your finger tips as you create, and this was one of them.  I'll show more pictures later this week.

We are expecting more snow as the temps remain frigid.  A good day to look through my recent finds, bake cookies and enjoy the sound of laughter coming from a family all together again.

May today keep a prayer of thankfulness continually flowing as I remember the reason for this Christmas season and the blessings I have received.  Have a joy-filled Monday!
