Celtic Twist


This table topper I made is called "Celtic Twist" that I made for my niece and her husband for Christmas.... I got this pattern out of  McCall's Quilt  book that I recieve every other month.... They are Irish and I  pull the color's from their livingroom... The materials are batiks.... They were thrilled to recieve it... The second picture is the label I had put on it.... :)

Pin Cushion and Thread Catcher


I had made these 8 Pin Cushion and Thread Catcher's for my quilting friends and for my sister for Christmas.... There is so many pictures that I wanted you to see all the diffrent ones I made.... I even kept one for myself .... These were given to my quilting friends on the Cape, Lynn, Susan, Robyn, Judy, Katy, and Ruth....I also filled them with some sewing notions and fat quarters..... I know they all loved them...I had to wait till after Christmas to post them.... The label that I made is from a stamp I had made for a group who swap a signature block.... The blocks are called Siggy Blocks .... On the block we needed our state, town, name, year on it, also USA ... I also included the state flower (wood violet) and where the heart is, that is the town where I live.... Carol made this stamp and put my own signature on it... :)

Braeden's First Christmas


Braeden is wearing his santa hat that say "Baby's 1st Christmas" on it... His Grandma had bought it for him to wear on Christmas... It had fit so well.... Breaden is 3 months old, Santa and family gave him so many toy's that his toy box is almost full..... His toy box was new this year.... Above is a "Brainy Baby Ball" that I had made for Breaden.... The blue fabric has diffrent colored sneakers and the yellow is all kinds of monsters in sneaker's .... The ball is made out of 12 wedges and I enjoyed in making this.....It is soft and easy for Braeden to grab.......  :)

Afghan


This is a Afghan that I crocheted for my son... It will fit his queen size bed... My son is into black, so I though this would be great in his room... The afghan is folded in third's, so you do not see the whole blanket in the picture... Gizmo is peeking on the right side to see what I am doing... I am so glad this is done... It is a "just because I love him" gift.... :)
