Family Things for Christmas

I learned how to make divinity candy from the expert - my mom.
She is a tough teacher.  I think I passed, but it wasn't easy.

I made Andrea a 'Santa' shirt for Christmas.
Finally got this done on December 23rd,
She only got to wear it once.  Oh well, there's always next year.

I made this scarf for my neice, Emily age 7, who is learing to crochet.
She did the fringe by herself. 

We had a 'craft' day on Dec 23rd.
I helped my neices make ribbon pony tail holders.

Shelby chose  the green & red ribbons above
and these Auburn ribbons.

Emily chose Bama ribbons -  Just to aggravate her mother.

This is Emily's other choice - pink and lime green.

We had a lot of fun!

What I did before Christmas

Hand towels:  Left 'B' is in TImes New Roman font
Right 'B' is in French Script.

I embroidered names on these 4 stockings. 
The single letters were already on them.
Barely made the deadline on this one!

I made three lap size memory quilts for a family
who is very special to me.
This was a very rewarding project.

I also did four scarves for different people from 'That One Jewelry & Gifts'.
Thanks Carolyn!

Houndstooth Checkbook Cover

This is a checkbook cover that I made for myself as a sample.
The houndstooth is actually paper designed to be stitched on.
You could also use vinyl letters for the monogram.
I purchased the checkbook cover and the paper
from the SewingMachine.comstore in West Point, GA.
