Matchbox 15 and a Red Quiltie

Can there only be 10 days til Christmas?  My # 15 Matchbox is from Kathy in Tennessee.  The outside of the box is elegantly decorated with tiny snowflake, Christmas sparkle, and a lovely deep red ribbon.  There is even a silver Christmas stocking on the back of the box.  Inside were tucked a great bottle cap magnet featuring a vintage Santa image, a tiny red candy, and a wonderful cloth ornament.  Thank you Kathy for the lovely box and little gifts.

As most of you know I participate in the Alphabet Quiltie Swap over on Fabric in Altered Arts 2 group.  This month the letter is "R".  Our hostess Penny selected the theme "red".  This is my Red Quiltie for December.  I decided to make a package and decorate the package with red plaid ribbon and two of my crochet flowers.  I purchased a book on making crochet flowers and experimented with some while sitting on our balcony cruising to Cabo.  It has been quite sometime since a I did much crochet work and I'm still experimenting with needle size and tension.
