Christmas Tags to say "Thank You"

 I am lucky that I won scrap booking items from French General and I needed a quick gift for 13 people.
 As you know I go to an Assisted Living each month and have women tie our Lutheran World Relief quilts.  The group are just wonderful and they never miss a session.

See the snowman it is from a Christmas card.

You have to love washi tape (sometimes they don't stick, I used Mod Podge over it).
To emblish I also used some of my Christmas cards, always save them.  My  tags for family packages are from my old Christmas cards and grand kids love to make them for me.

Enjoying the Holidays

My children decorated the outdoors for me and it was cold.

Added battery lights to this and they work great - on a timer.

Garland is my favorite.

A bus tour does drive past our street showing everyone's decorations.

Stump blocks were no cost from the nursery.


My Charlie Brown tree - it is crooked (the grandkids decorated this one.

This was so easy with what I had at home.

We had company for Thanksgiving.

Grand kids made a turkey garland.
Dinner was wonderful.....I had my family together for the first time in 10 years.

We made name tags on the pears for place setting.  I did crackers since family were together.  So much fun.

Family decorated for me, will show photos next time.

Napkin Holder to Mail Holder

Found these napkins holder for 59 cents and added the cross stitch.  I brought all holders and looking for more.



It was a great find made them for World of Cross Stitching group.

I did not do the stitching just did the totes.


Made mug rugs - glad I save binding.

Candle Mat

I have had this pattern for 4 years and I finally finished it.  I liked working with wool and felt but it was difficult.

I used twine for the border as I am getting older it is difficult to sew things straight.

The project is okay but it didn't come out the way I wanted too, but at least it is done.

Time to get ready for holidays, I will need to concentrate on Thanksgiving but I will start decorating for Christmas.
