Firstly we have Kelsey! The first picture is of a wedding present Kelsey made for her cousin who has a lime green kitchen.
Kelsey got the measuring cups and spatular from the gift registry and sewed the napkins to go with them. I think this looks just beautiful! Very professional Kelsey!
Next she made a cake for Fathers Day...
As you can guess it's a carrot cake!
Then she made mixed berry muffins and she used my "use it up" muffin recipe!
And finally she made receiving blankets which are double sided... (for her baby) I love the prints!
Kelsey your sewing and cooking are both wonderful! You must be very pleased with the month!
Jeanette made baby gifts also for her hairdresser and friend!
Booties and baby rugs/receiving blankets! The colours are just gorgeous. She must be so thrilled Jeanette. Truly lovely!
Chloe's boyfriend is a farmer and tractor driver. It was just his birthday on the weekend. I had to show you this! I have always said a cake is one of the best gifts!
She had to drive it six hours to get it to him! Well, it was a hit! Little boy or big boy this is always going to be appreciated!
Cookie had wonderful op shop finds to help her gift making.... amongst other things she found stunning skeins of wool. You have to love op shopping. They had the original price on them and were expensive but I think Cookie paid 50c per skein.... this is an example...
There were also red skeins and other finds!
Rosanne completed a blanket for her Grand daughter. Or I would say a bedspread...
It has an intricate flower cutout patter as a strip though the top section. It is stunning. I can only dream of achieving this! Roseanne this is an heirloom for sure!
Maria finished a jumper for her Grandson. This is beautiful and warm for winter right now.
I know your Grandson feels loved when you make him something Maria from comments he has made before! You did such a good job on this!
Well, that is enough for this week! Next week is shaping up so well too! If you would like to contribute please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or post pics to the Facebook page.
So far this week I got a series of small gifts made! It feels good to be putting things away that actually might make it until Christmas! Each little thing adds up!
I hope your week is going well! So far so good here.... this afternoon we get the valuation of the floor... I am nervously waiting for this!
Also thank you all so much for so many helpful comments on Mondays post "Learning with Laine". I really appreciate that it takes time to comment and help. But so much help came in and I feel very blessed by that. And to top it off I got a letter from Laine. THE Laine! So next weeks Pantries and Preparedness Post is actually by Laine! I feel so honoured and excited! Ahh! what a week! xxx
