Christmas Gift

This pin is one of my favorite gifts from this Christmas.  Bill bought it for me...I just love it!
The little wool house and tree are so sweet, and I love the stitching on the roof! 

The beading along the edges is beautifully done, and the door and window are perfectly stitched. My favorite part of the pin is the tiny flowers growing on either side of the door.

When it arrived I believe there was some discussion betwen my husband and daughter about the size of it..."maybe it's too large" they thought.  I think the size is wonderful...the pin is about the size of a business card.  When I'm not wearing it, it can be a tiny bit of wall art!

The workmanship is so lovely...right down to the little wooly clouds.  The artist's name is Jill and her Etsy shop is called Fiberlucious.   She made a really sweet pincushion that I liked as well....too cute!

Thanks Bill....I'm wearing it to work this week!!!
