Handmade Christmas Gifts

Since I had mentioned to you lovely folks that I attempted a handmade Christmas, I thought I should share some pics so that you could see what I made.  I could kick myself for not taking pictures of everything, such as the lavendar sachets and embroidered handkerchiefs, but here are my mother's and sister's gifts.....

This was Momma's pillow I embroidered and backed to match her livingroom.
This is the purse that I needle-felted for Beth.
Now to come up with some fantastic something for Momma's birthday......hmmmm.... hard for me, in my limited skills, to top Momma's pillow!


Beth said...

Oh stop!! You're skills aren't limited...AT ALL!!! However, it will be difficult to top that fabulous pillow!!! At least you have a whole year to try to top my purse!! Good luck with that I might add!! ;-)

The purse is beautiful! Oh my word, I did all my shopping stupidly last minute.... not this next year but your gifts are so great. You inspire me to work harder with a lot more love next Christmas. Have a amazing day.
