Gifts and giving

I love to make gifts for people. This Christmas I gave several, very special gifts to very special people in my life. I made this pin cushion from a freebie design at primitivebettys and gathered all the little sewing accessories from various places and gave it to a dear friend. I enjoyed gathering all the little items so much I think I'm going to make one for myself.

Here is a picture of the finished product:

I belong to a couple of Yahoo! groups. In the Bent Creek group we do an ornament exchange every year. This year I had Renee and made this ornament for her.

I work with a gal that LOVES snowmen. So I stitched up this adorable little guy for her for Christmas. She has him on her desk at work so I can visit him sometimes!!

I was also part of a 12 days of Christmas exchange. I had Milly's name and these are the things that I made for her:

This scissor fob (the charm is a pair of scissors)

This pin cushion is an old freebie. I filled a muslin pillow with crushed walnut shells, then I finished it crudely so it could be used as a pin cushion to keep the needles and pins sharp.

Anyone who knows Milly knows she loves Prairie Schooler santas. So when I got her name I knew immediately what one of her gifts would be! This little freebie was really fun to stitch and finish.

I will be posting a picture of a purse that I made my daughter later on.

Until then, have a wonderful day!
