Gift Sewing Madness

Happy Wednesday!

We had a great time traveling up north for Thanksgiving. It was great visiting family and eating delicious food!  The cold weather however did not agree with me – I have been sick the past week.  Today is the first day I haven’t had all day coughing spells and getting out of bed wasn’t a chore.

I was happy and grateful to spend all day at my sewing machine!  Like many of you I have many holiday gifts/projects to finish and not enough time! 🙂

Place mats and table runners are my go to gifts for family — I try to have them finished early  so they can use them during the holiday season.

My girl friend requested place mats with multi colored (warm colors) poseys.  I found the fabric in the clearance section at JoAnn’s.  I love how they turned out!

We took our young grandsons to see  The Grinch movie over Thanksgiving. They loved it. When I saw this fabric I had to make a set of place mats for them to remember us!

I actually started this last set of QAYG place mats before Thanksgiving. My daughter loves bling!  I found a jelly roll that had several pieces of fabric with metallic threads.
