Wrapping Up

Wrapping up my Holiday gift giving crafts for this year. I have added a few more cross stitch cards, tea towels and mini pillows filled with love.

I made two of these. Poinsettia’s are a favorite and I couldn’t resist making a second instead of another pattern.

Most people throw out their plant at the end of the season but have you ever kept your poinsettia plant? Just google the directions. It’s easy and fun to see the plant come back to life.
Small Pillow and Tea Towel will be a gift combo. These pillows are so quick and easy to stitch up whether by hand or machine. The pillow is pieced in the Friendship Star pattern, just perfect from a friend.

One last tea towel finished

This year was difficult for so many. A second wave has hit our country and the numbers infected are rising, additional restrictions are being enforced and for the first time since this began, friends I personally know and am close with have become ill with the virus. Thankfully a vaccine is on the horizon. As I continue to hunker down and nestle in for a long winters nap I will continue to craft with gift giving in mind. It’s easy to spread some happiness around, not just through the holidays but throughout the year. Be safe out there!

      Thank you Deb ~ the winter scene pillow is my favorite too and I think I have just enough to get another pillow out of it 🙂

    Such beautiful gifts you are making Sharon! I was complaining about not getting to get out and have some fun, but a friend in the Dallas area caught COVID and I quickly became a house hermit again! Take care! At least it is winter time here in South Texas! Hugs

    Prayers for your friend…I know you’ll take advantage of your ‘hermiting’ and create something beautiful.
