Watcha Working On Wednesday

I am going to let the pics speak for themselves-

Yes, I am going thru my Christmas decorations.I need to get the lights out and make sure they all work because this weekend Robbie wants to put them up because the grandchildren are coming in next week.They will be at their own home for Christmas so this is the only time they will be seeing our home lit up for Christmas.You gals keep me in your prayers!!! Oh and by the way,we will be putting up 3 trees this year but we are waiting until Thanksgiving to put them up!Before I leave I want to show you guys ny coasters I made up.It was my first stint on the sewing machine.I can't remember who's site I got these off of but I do appreciate it. They were so easy to do!
Well I hope everyone has a blessed day and hopefully I will be back Friday!

Boy you are busy...I love those snowballs...that is soooo cute. What a lovely family you have, and beautiful daughter in loves! Aren't sons wonderful, I can't wait to see mine, less than a month a way, when they come home from school. Your pinecones turned out great too. I added some glitter to mine (of course) but I think I lilke the white snow look on yours. Too cute!
Have a blessed day!

I love the garland it will look really neat. The coasters look neat too. Bet you can't wait to see though kiddos expressions as they see the done trees. I will pray for you hehehe. I know what you mean. I have 2 trees so I can do wht I want with one. I can generally get someone else on my side on how to decorate it.

Have fun.

It's that time of

Nice coasters! I keep thinking that I need to make a few but that's something I don't think to do when I'm bored!

Now that you know how to do the rag can do so much! Just keep making them and add them together until you get a candle mat, table runner or even a quilt :) Rag quilted items are a great way to get started with sewing :)

Have a great day!

The outlines of my snowmen are done in white. I don't think I'm going to stain these stitcheries because they are for an auction (fake money) for DH's work Christmas party and not everyone likes Prim like I do :) I figured white would be proper because it's a snowman after all! :)

Have a great day!

Love your coasters. I do hope you'll share how you did those. What a nice gift that would make! I'm doing a handmade only Christmas this year.

I was just going to post almost the same thing as Sandy just did! LOL
I love going through my Christmas boxes. I know what I have in them but it's always such a thrill seeing the pretties again.
Good luck decorating.
