the funny and talented Lynn at Thimblemouse and Spouse
Big thanks to Mdm Samm and to Marlene

Lynn stitched these awesome quick gifts...sEw perfect for me...
How did Lynn know I fell in love with this fabric line as soon as I saw it?? 
The cutest mouse pincushion....so stinkin' cute,
a mug rug made from a block from the Winter Wonderlane panel,
and a quilted sleeve enclosed in a see through mug...
perfect for holding all my tracing pencils.
The fabric line is Winter Wonderland by Anne Sutton...
and it is sEw perfect for this sweet trio.
Love, the fabrics...love the gift Lynn!!
