The gifts we made for each others and those on our Christmas lists, were to be made in 3 hours or less.
First, let me show you what I received from Leah at Quilted Delights.
Everything came in this beautiful bag:
2 little hand "snap" coin purses:
Inside were these mouth watering chocolates:
A cute needle holder,
3 cute scrubbies,
(I seen dishcloths, but these are smaller, and work so much better)
And...my favorite candy, how I'd you know Leah?
Here are all my wonderful gifts together:
(Minus the candy...I couldn't help myself)
Thank you sooooo much Leah.
I myself, had a rough month, but I did get a few wallets made:
And a few small wallets for our neices:
I am working on making each of our neices a Christmas Stocking. (A Santa, a snowman, and an Angel) (believe it or not I have been working on them for almost 2 weeks, yup, it's been a rough month)
I did get some pincushions made. I could hand sew these while sitting in my chair.
I also want to make each of our neices a doll. I chose these fabrics.
I made these small dolls the day this hop was announced. They didn't turn out quite like what I wanted, so I plan on keeping them for samples. These were like a test run...now I know just how I want to make them.
Now let's go see what others are sharing this Season.
Before you leave, I want to introduce you to my new tool. I LOVE IT!!! That is my "Beam n' Read". The BEST gift anyone could get.....
I could tell you all about the extra wide personal light from 6 LED's, that DON'T get hot and will not disturb others.
I could tell you how you can switch from 6 LED's to using only 3 LED's and about the adjustible strap.
I could tell you how you can plug it in to household currant (which the cord does not get into your way at all) or use 4 AA batteries (that can last up to 50 hours) and go anywhere with it. Oh, and how it comes with a large acrylic magnifier and 2 clip on filters for night vision.
The best part to me is that with my bad eyes, I can see. Now, that is what means the most to me!
I now can do any close up work and see. Whether it be my embroidery or painting. I can see like I did when I was in my 20's! All I can say is Thank you Very Much!!!!
Now, come join me and see what others are making for Christmas. I don't know about you but I am getting so many ideas as what I can make. (YEAH!)
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!
