I'm so far behind!!! Ideas for gifts and Angel Swap

I'm so far BEHIND!!!

Ideas for Gifts and Angel Swap

I am really behind in all of my blogging and visiting, but I will come see you all soon. I have a show December 6Th and with all the sewing that needs to be done, I'm panicking now. November brings 3 birthdays and a visit out to West Texas, so I have to get in high gear.

First I want to show you a picture of my Angel Swap gifts from Pina Refat . Thank you so much and they are so special coming from you, all the way from Australia. This was a great swap since we all like to sew and that is what the swap was about. I received a pincushion, a needle holder (with beautiful stitchery on it) and a pretty bag. You know how us ladies like our bags. Thank you again Pina.

Now I want to show you one of the items I've been working on for the show. They are sew easy!!! Maybe it will give you some ideas for Christmas gifts. These are baby burp cloths. I will be posting a tutorial on this tomorrow, the pictures are taken so maybe tonight. I love making these and try to make them special since the "First Christmas" is so much fun with little ones. A little ornament tied on that you can date. (They will also be listed in the shop) Hope to post gift ideas now until Christmas.

We had a few Christmas's when we didn't have small children at the celebrations. It is so much fun to see Christmas through children's eyes. My Mom and Dad would have their great gatherings for Thanksgiving and Christmas with all the Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and yes even strangers sometimes. (That's a whole other story). At Christmas we would always have a cake and sing "Happy Birthday" to Jesus. The children would be so excited to blow out the candles and sing.

These fast little gifts are some of the things that I've worked on for the show, but I can't wait to sew some quilts or clothes. So stay tuned for some variety. I'll show the pillow cases next.

Here are some pictures from West Texas, it is so beautiful out west. I went into a great quilt shop and brought the camera, but I got the hint that they really didn't want any pictures taken. If you are ever in Kerrville I would say you need to stop by.
