    My Buyer recently moved into her new home. She likes Nautical/water themes, so I did a landscape for her with sailboat side wall hangings. And to help her with the Christmas season I made her a new stocking and fabric tray.

    That's really sweet. I was thinking of putting on my house listing that I would make a quilt for whoever bought it :)

    I did the opposite. I made a quilt for our new landlord who by the luck of GOD let us rent their old house when they finished building/moved in there new house. Our old place was sold and we were scared to death we'd be homeless and lose our furbabies. Many rentals don't allow pets. Anyway we now are happy in our HOME, with babies too.. I made this as a HUGE thank you for being our angel.

    Deb ~ That wall hanging is absolutely gorgeous! Are you familiar w/ the book "Accidental Landscapes"? Looks like you used her method? You could enter that in a show, it is so beautiful.

    Boy you put me to shame, I used to gift a wine/food basket to mine and they bought some REALLY nice big houses (REALLY NICE BIG HOUSES)... and you made something that is truly gorgeous. And now that I am moving and praying to get into a house with my own fur babies what a great idea as a thank you. This board is so full of creative ideas. I think its almost as addicting as quilting and certainly more entertaining than TV.

    We do have so many great ideas. I always find something to try after going through all of our posts.
