Hello and good evening dear friends. I hope and pray that every one has had a wonderful weekend. We have been having a bit if freezing rain but nothing really bad. With all the snow gone and the days kind of mild it is making me think of Spring. I am getting a urge to get some planting done, or get started I mean. Some days it is like Spring is in the air. So I have been looking in some of my garden books and magazines, and thinking of how to plant my front yard. I can't wait to get started on it. I know I am rushing it a bit, but I am itching to get in the dirt. lol;
Know as I promised I am going to show you all the gift I sewed for my daughter Chas for Christmas. I could not show you before because she looks at my blog sometimes. If I do say so myself I think they turned out pretty great. I love the fabric almost kept them for myself. lol
I am sorry that it is not very clear, but this is with my old camera. In my craft room, I made her two king sized pillow shams and a neck roll. I love the fabric colors, it is a soft brown with pink and a bit of green in it. She wanted a brown Toile but I looked every where and could not find any. So I found this that reminded me of a toile.
I did not really know what kind of fabric I wanted for the ruffle, so at Wal Mart I found this pretty floral fabric with some browns and pinks, hoping it would match and look nice.
I tried to get a good shot of the trim on the neck roll, but since it is a brown it did not show up very well. I found some very nice tassel trim for around the neck roll, and a light gold color sheer ribbon to tie it with. The match was more then I could hope for.
Making the ruffle pleats for the shams took quit awhile, I stuck my fingers so much with the pins they were sore for a couple of days. lol; She really loved them, now I have to make her a quilt for the bed, I told her to wait for about three yrs, then It would be done. lol I do have fun sewing things for my family and friends. Over the New Year week I have been sewing a baby quilt for our new Great Nephew, I will do a post on it tomorrow. I had some blue toile left and white chenille, with a matching round pillow. I can't wait to see our newest member of the family, and give him my gift. Well ladies that is about it for now, I found a new pattern I am going to start on will show you at a later date. I found a very pretty blue toile fabric for it, so I can't wait to start. I still have to get started on painting our family room to get it done, so I am going to be busy for a while, and share lots of photos.
I want to Thank You All for you very sweet and kind comments. I know I say this at the end of every post, but it is so so true. When I read all the comments I get such a lift and loving feeling from each one, that is so real and not fake. I Bless you all for that. And I hope that in turn I do the same for all of you, all my Prayers for any one who is in need, I will keep you in them Our Lord knows who they are and what the need and I lift you up to him at all times. Have a most wonderful and joyful week. God Bless
