My friend, Leah, sent me an early birthday present. We don’t normally exchange gifts, however, I sent her a pair of socks for her birthday in July. She’s a crocheter, sewist, wife, mother, (just a few of her talents) and dabbles in other crafty things and surprises.
My final completed knitting project this year was a set of four coasters using this pattern.
I had given all my cotton yarn (except the white and red) to my granddaughter this fall. thinking I was all coastered out. But needing a quick Christmas hostess gift, I decided to bring out the pattern again.
These red and white coasters remind me of peppermint candies!
I also managed to knit another scrubby with red and orange Scrubby Sparkle. Sorry, no pictures.
A great gift idea that only took about 4-5 hours to complete!
These little bags make a great gift idea that only takes about an hour or two to complete. Of course, when making 28, it takes a bit longer.
The small “what-not” bags I sewed together for our church’s fundraiser are finished. Some are made with vintage fabrics from the 1950s, 60s, and 70s and some are from this century.Each one is different in some way. Some have different zipper colors or different lining fabrics, or both.
Now to pack them up and get them to the church for the Christmas Tea this Saturday.
