Well, as promised, I am posting the last homemade Christmas gift that I had made for my sister Brenda. It was a fun project and I was pleased with how it came out.
The size of the calendar pages are each 5"x7" and fit perfectly in that size acrylic stand up frame. I'm really glad you liked your gift, Brenda!

Until next time...

    Happy New Year everyone!  It's the start of a new year again. I wish everyone a happy and healthy new year.  One of my goals for last year was to make everyone on my Christmas list a handmade item. They all still received store bought gifts, but I wanted to give them all something from "me". I hope they all liked what I made them.
Canning Bread & Butter Pickles
and Zucchini Relish
Lots of homemade goodies
put into Christmas tins. 
Heating Pad Rice Bag for Jocelyn

Notepad for my sister Beverly
she LOVES kitties!
Bracelets to match outfits bought for Claudia
Hello Kitty fringed blanket for Claudia
Framed, cross stitched snowman
for Kattaleeya

Hand quilted table runner for Jocelyn
made with love in every stitch!
Cross stitched, felt lined, stained box with
a personalized pad of paper for Lily
(she LOVES soccer so this was perfect)!

Cross stitched, felt lined, stained box with
2 bracelets for Lucy

Well, these are the handmade gifts I made for everyone. The guys got mostly canning and homemade goodies. Other homemade goodies were made but no photos taken, I have one sister (Brenda) who I have not exchanged with yet (we do after the holidays) so I will post the gift that I made for her once she has it. :)   Now you can see why my blog posting went to the wayside, I'm back to making and posting cards now....  :)

Until next time...
