Christmas Ornament Exchange and Doll Trunk Addition

This is an ornament I received in my exchange with Tahlia.  As you recall from my last post I had sent her the peacock ornament.  The photo here is a bit bright.  The little ornament is so nicely stitched on all three sides and on the bottom using lots of metallic thread in gold, copper and silver.  The bag of beads was thrown in as a little birthday surprise.  Love the colors and all the sparkle.

She also sent my trunk doll a wonderful stitched gift.  It is so tiny and perfect!  At the CQI retreat she gave me the tiny spool of thread.  Love it all!

Below is my little vignette with some small oil lamps, hats, teapot and the pieces from Tahlia setting on top of the trunk and flanked by my CQJP 2013 mini quilt.  I need to get a dress and some accessories made for the doll so she can come out of hiding.

I love getting special gifts from my creative friends.  They are always so special.  Trunk doll is happy too.
