Today I will start show and tell for November. We are getting so close to Christmas now!
First of all we have Cookie. She is waiting on the birth of a very special baby and she made a beautiful quilt which was given at the most fantastic baby shower I have ever heard about!
And she is busy now on burp cloths and all sorts of other baby items! Anyone would love to have Cookie sewing lovely things for their new baby!
Maria made Angel Wings for her Aunt. What could be better than angel wings? Ruffled angel wings!
I have always loved this verse. I think this is a most beautiful Christmas gift Maria!
Also Maria showed me her packaging for her little fruit cakes and Christmas cooking.
I thought this is bright, cheerful, reusable and sealed. Very good idea. I could do with saving up some nice containers to do the same.
Kathy recently mentioned inheriting her husbands Grand Mothers quilts. I said how I would love to see them and she sent me photos! So here they are:
This is my favourite for the quilted pattens and the colouring. Just divine.
These are just stunning. I know I would have loved this lady. What work she put into these.
What is also wonderful to me is that Kathy really appreciates these quits and they will be valued and cared for. To me these things in a family are worth more than anything you can buy in some shop. Just far more.
Kathy also shared an op shop (thrift store) find she was thrilled with...
I can see why, I love cups and saucers. I watch for them all the time!
Thank you Kathy! I wonder if I will find any treasures today?
If you have work to show please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will feature it next week. Feel free to include cooking for Christmas as well as crafts! In fact as we go into December if you are cooking and packaging up goodies please share as it seems packaging ideas are something we are all looking for. I can add these kind of pictures at any time!
I will have to post feather your Nest Friday on the weekend when I get back. But I think I will have a lot to report and will look forward to hearing about your week which I hope will be a great on! xxx
