Handmade gifts

These are ornaments that I tried to match the personalities to my quilting friends
It was fun finding a shape that would work and the images

This is just a scrappy top that someone is telling me to get quilted 

I also made some sewing room wallhangings
Some had women on them
Some had sayings
All were fun to make
And use up my scraps to share with others

See even my Mom knew before 1989 that a handmade gift is special
I cherish this pumpkin she made for me

Time to start the list for 2019 and plan my new projects

I am thinking some pillowcases for little ones to dream of sugarplums may be due

And of course pinterest challenges me with some cool ideas too

Do you make gifts?

I just love my "Lady" these came out beautifully--She is residing in my latest book right now...just perfect many thanks hugs, Julierose said...

Thank you for the sweet ladies, and Bobbin is dying to try her treat launcher, but after the glass TV debacle we may need to shelve that idea for a while. You are a bad influence. I have pulled fabric and am making pillowcases, and considering making the book pillows. Pillows with a pocket to put a book in.

I am using my 'lady' as a book mark as well. I did a lot of pillowcases in November for our guild charity drive - we gifted 68 pillowcases that were added to the community Christmas boxes. I don't make family gifts any more as they receive thru out the year as needs arise. BUT, my one SIL (youngest brother) browsed the shop for some friends gifts and fell in love with one of my latest finishes - scrappy flannel shirts. I gave it to her as it had meaning - last of the shirt scraps from our grandfather, dad, all the boys and my boys. She cried - me too!
