Last minute Stocking Stuffers

While digging in a trunk of my grandmothers I found this pattern for a needle holder in her old grange book. My grandmother was a Grange leader for many years. I followed the directions and added the flower and ribbon embellishments.

On the inside there is a small piece of batting to secure the hand sewing needles. Each of the three girls will get one in their stockings. I try and give all the children something hand made each year.


Taylor's Tulips Top is DONE

YES!! that's right!!

The top is DONE!! I love the way it turned out. I can't wait to start the new Burning the Midnight Oil BOM in Jan.


Ginger Bread Man Terrorist

This poor Ginger bread cookie cutter has been deemed a Terrorist. LOL He was found in a box being mailed to Canada. LOL Customs agents rejected his first attempt into the country, but after a repacking, he reached is final destination. LOL

I sent a Christmas package to a friend in Canada, days later the box was returned. The metal cookie cutter did not make it threw the x-ray machine at the border. I repackaged the box, wrapping the cookie cuter in fabric and this time the box went threw just fine and the box was delivered Friday. LOL
Well my friend, Aunty-Social, has a warped sense of humor and made our little terrorist look the part. LOL This is just to funny. The Ginger Bread Man Terrorist was born. LOL
Merry Christmas

Plans for the day

The weather here in PA is blowy, cold and it's going to rain. So, today I'm just going to stay in and sew. I have a quilt top to pin on the Grace frame, the one for Samantha's boyfriend, and I plan on working on the Ohio Rose quilt. I want to get all the applqiue pieces for the sashing strips ready today.
So, we will see if I get my goal for the day done LOL
I will keep you posted
