    May I ask what are Crayon Rollups?! Sounds like something my granddaughters would like.

    I LOVE all of these ideas, I did find this morning a pattern of paper piecing a Coffee Pot and Coffee cups, I thought of making these into 6.1/4 inch squares for either mug rugs or pot holders. Either way I think they'll be easy enough but want to try some of these other ideas as well. Thanks to ALL!!
    Thank You Lord for answering my prayers, in this I am truely blessed!

We are not wealthy by any means, but we had times in the past living on the very edge, so we feel this is important. As a teen, DH put in long hours working for a landlord to keep a roof over the family's head when HIS family could not pay the rent. In our shaky economic times, these gifts are much more important than the table runners and placemats to kin.
    You and your family are truely gifted from the heart. I so admire your will to give as you do. I've been on edge at times myself, still there sometimes but I like you believe in giving from the heart to help another is the best gift one could give. You are a blessing in yourself.

    I'll admit, I 'borrow' ideas from etsy from time-to-time (for my personal use). I got the idea for a car wallet for my son from there. I didn't want to pay $10+ for one, so I looked at a few pics, got some fabric I thought he'd like, and made it myself (with a lot left over).

    I've made 2 Spicy Spiral table toppers, 2 of the MSQC tree table runners, a sampler table runner, a large lap "thinking outside the block" quilt & matching pillowcase for my DGS, 4 fabric bowls (only 6 more to go), 12 comfort wraps for an assisted living facility (with much help from my cousin, niece, & most especially, my DSIL). I did the quilting on all 12, DSIL did all of the binding. I still want to make a Swirling Stars - Card Trick table topper & also, a tree skirt out of the same pattern for the living room.

    I am not making any gifts this year.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place...the End Times.
