Birthday gift


We are going to a friend's for coffee and birthday cake soon.
She is celebrating her 50th birthday today and I have enjoyed myself putting together a gift for her.
This Santa cushion cover was fun to make. The motif is from a Nancy Halvorsen book - Pillow talk - with some adjustments. The back is from the red fabric, buttoned with wooden hearts.
With this cushion cover comes some other quilt goodies as well - 1 kit with fabric, 1 cardboard kit for a daily planner, 1 miniature pattern and a Piecemaker card with pattern.
I am sure the birthday girl will enjoy her gifts, and we are wishing her a wonderful day and many more to come.

Adorable! Too bad about knitting giving your body fits. I can see where your DD would like the colors in the socks---is she the one with the purple and white quilt?
