This is my last post of 2011!! I hope to have many many many new posts in 2012!
I made quite a few gifts this year. I hope I took pictures of them all, but I’m not sure I did! Let’s see.
Gifts for my nieces in NC–One loves BLUE, so she got this.
Blue Windows for Amber

For the other NC niece, I went much more modern. I’m disgusted with the pictures. It rained ALL week, so I had to take indoor pictures.
Modern look for Bobbie
LOVED the backing
3 days before Christmas, Mike started saying that HE was getting a quilt for Christmas. CRAP. Walmart’s precut batik strips to the rescue!
Mike's Rock Candy Christmas
Gifts for the inlaws—
for Pop Pop
the yellow smudges are Phillip!
GiGi's placemats. Boys were crawfish..
..and the girls were crabs
waterbottle carrier for Tina
totebag for Tina
I did some goodies for Louetta–beautiful placemats–no pictures. I did a horsie set for Dinah–notebook, binder, and kleenex cover–no pictures. MOM didn’t get her stuff yet, so no pictures of that yet. I THINK that was all that I made for gifts this year.
Here is to many MANY more posts in 2012. Thank you to my loyal followers!! Keep posted–I want to get more traffic to my blog this year, so I’ll host a giveaway, have some free patterns, and a few other stuff. I am ALSO going to start charging taxes. This will be the first year I actually might be in the black, so I figure I’d better sign up with the state and be legal! Paperwork–YUCK! LOL so lots of changes on the way.
peace and pieces,
So many ideas, so little time!!! Here are some potholders…
Several sets of place mats in this style…
Gift Cards left over from last year…
felt bird and pear ornaments
Into my Safari collection! Journals
and chapstick carrier.
My model and her water bottle tote!
Photo boxes filled with a water bottle tote, journal, and chapstick holder
And then reversible cup sleeves
They fit insulated strawcups
and insulated coffee mugs
And this will be finished…
As will this. Both are throw sizes.
And this will be a tree skirt , and it will be finished, too.
Hope to see ya’ll there!!!
Peace and Pieces,
I messed around last week, and came up with a few new things. I have to rework the scarf pattern–it’s a bit thin to be a true runner. But it WOULD work perfectly as a giant potholder if I’d used Therma-brite!
And I made some neat little Can coozies. One for each teacher, each aid, and 2 for MOM!
Kind of neat, huh???
I was pleased. And so were all the recipients. I will have plenty of these to sell at the craft fair in November.
peace and pieces,
