Christmas Gifts 2015

For my youngest daughter, I made a jeans apron.  It was so easy to make.  The hardest part was figuring out what size tie to make. I'll probably make a few more.  I bought several pairs of jeans from Goodwill to use.

For oldest daughter, I machine embroidered some kitchen towels in a beach theme.  They're ok.  I'm disappointed that the towel itself is distorted.

For the deacon, I machine embroidered a picture.  I had a ton of ideas which made it very difficult to decide on what to make until he gave a homily on which this was the theme.  After I made it, I had to decide how to finish it.  Thankfully I found this green frame at JoAnn's.  It matches the green of the leaves perfectly.

Off the Shuttles: Lanyard

It's finally finished!  I decided to not wait for Spring softball season. Tatting with the Tatsy shuttle wasn't as bad as I had anticipated. Yes, it's big but with a large enough ring, it's just fine to work with.
