    Christmas Gifts

    Here are a couple pictures of a few things I have made for Christmas gifts. The bookmarkers have been a big hit at my office. I brought them in for "show and tell" and had to go home and make more!

    Those are adorable. Did you use machine embroidery?

    Those are really cute! I've been retired a couple of years and that's the only thing I miss - show and tell. For some reason my DH isn't as interested in my creations as the women I worked with!

    I know what you mean about DH not being as interested. Mine always makes a little sound when I show him things I have made.

    Those are lovely and I think if I took them into my office they wouldn't make it back home again.

    They are so darling, I can understand why you had to go home and make more.

    The book marks are so pretty. I love machine embroidery.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I got the downloads from John Deer's Adorable Ideas. Once you get the layout border, you can put any design in the center. Fun to do.

    I'm sorry to be such a grouch but aren't the tassels on the wrong end? When I make bookmarks I let them hang out from the top of the book...that helps to show where a person left off reading. Just wondering.
