More Gifts I Made....

Today I will share some of the gifts I made for our family. Everyone got something, even though some were pretty small gifts. (grin)  But before I do, I want to tell you that I got the lovely redwork design on the previous post from a free download on Allie's blog. She is always putting free things up for us to use. Sorry Allie, that I neglected to give you credit.

Some of the gifts I will share here were free projects found on the net. I will give credit where I can. Some were printed off a while ago., and if their web address does not show up in the printed copy, I can't share where to find them. Sorry.  I made Carolyn a set of dish towels. I just bought a pair of white flour sack like towels, added fabric to two ends, and appliqued a hen and a rooster on them. I also added a crocheted dishcloth. She really liked them. I found these on Joanna Figueroa for Fig Tree and Company's site.
I bought fabric to make Cathryn a Bow Tucks bag last Christmas, but never did have time to make her one out of the special fabric I bought. When I told her about it last Christmas she said she could use some place mats. I remembered this, so I made her these quilt as you go place mats. I found these on Gudrun's blog.  Cathryn loved them and said they would work perfectly in her house.
Here is a closeup of one of them.
I gave Hazel the Daisy Star quilt. It is a Judy Laquidara free pattern.
All of the guys got neck pillows. I believe I found the directions and pattern for these on the Connecting Threads site under their free projects.
I made Kim, Jon's girlfriend a Sassy Bag from Lazy Girl Designs. Jon said she loves green and small bags, so I figured this pattern would be perfect for her. I think it was. I found these two fabrics in Walmart a few weeks ago and fell in love with them. I think I have enough to make my Kindle case from the leftovers. (grin)
The inside of Kim's bag....
The back of it....
I will share the gowns/pants I made for the grandkids and mom's gift next time. Now on to some more Christmas pictures......
Noah walked in looking so handsome.
Madison wouldn't put down this cookie, even to open gifts. LOL
Hazel holding Izabella. Hazel's hair is normally really curly, but she straightened it for the day. It was pretty, but I love her curls. (grin) I'm a mama, what can I say? LOL
Kim fits in good with our family. You can always tell a good person when the kids love them. Ava laying across Kim....
Ashton......
That is enough for now. I am not sure how I managed it, but I am now following my own blog. LOL  I worked quite a bit on Kevin's quilt yesterday. I plan to do some more hand quilting on it today. I am really enjoying this. The pressure is off and I can relax in front of the tv with the quilt in my lap without feeling like I should be doing something else to prepare for Christmas. (grin)  I think I will post this now and get back in my rocker and do what I love doing. Thank you for visiting. Please come again. Have a wonderful day. Oh, I also want to throw out this. If you still need a guy's gift, these neck pillows are quick and easy to do and all the guys loved them.  Talk to you all later.

More beautiful gifts! Your quilts are so pretty, Winona... and I LOVE the appliqued chickies. (I know, what a surprise! *hehe*)
Love these pictures of your grands- they look like they had a good time.
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, dear friend.

Thanks hon for the link, but please don't worry about it! I too like to give credit, I'll have to remember to put my blog addy on my designs - I think I started doing that, I know I love it when designers do that, but I probably forget.

You made some GORGEOUS gifts. Those placemats are just wonderful, and that quilt!!! Stunning! You have a great color sense. Maybe I should get you to pick out fabrics for my quilts for me...

The neck pillows are great. I'm going to keep that in mind for next year! I love the Sassy Bag, I made one for myself but my mother claimed it. *G*

The kids are just adorable...I miss having little ones around at Christmas! They sure look like they had fun!

Enjoy your quilting!
