TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
MY DAY !!
THANK YOU, THEARICA!
Thearica, My Special Santa, sent a box filled with goodies!! Would you believe this sweet friend made the effort to track down my daughter by phone just so she could ask about my likes and dislikes!!? I was so impressed and even more so when my daughter shared with me (AFTER I received my gift) just how kind and sweet Thearica was over the phone!!!
Take a PEEK with me and see my Beautiful Gifts

NOW....MY CHRISTMAS GIFTS
My Model is my 13 yr. old Grandson who Bravely allowed Grandmama put an apron on him.
He is such a sweetheart...none of this 13 yr. old smart mouth I used to hear when teaching.
He has such a heart for people in Third World Countries without Clean Water!!
Truth: I still have to put in the lining. I've never made a bag before so this took me FOREVER!
I would watch a step on You-Tube, Sew, Watch You-Tube, Sew, etc....
This is my Go-To Quick Gift to give to my
Sunday School Class, Sewing group, etc...
I try to make most of them in NON-Christmasy
fabric so they can be used all year round.
Plastic bag holders
These are made to fit the receiver's "LIKES"
Christmas Card Holder
Disclaimer: My son makes these in his wood working shop.
He made me one out of cedar wood and background is Burlap.
Each one is custom ordered and my picture doesn't show the beauty of the wood.
AND Last But Not Least, My Ongoing Project to Remodel my Sewing Room... a small preview of the LARGE Ruffled Skirt that will go around the bottom of my Sewing Room Cutting
Table! Matches the Curtains only they are Black Gingham with Yellow Gingham Ruffle.
