The Work of Our Hands

I received a package in the mail yesterday from my dear Mom-in-love, Martha.  She was cleaning out some drawers and came across these pretties that she thought I might like.  I was thrilled!  I especially like the little bloomers.  This got me thinking about all the wonderful things we make with our hands and I thought I would share a few...

This darling crosstitch hangs in my sewing room.  My Mom, Helen, made it for my daughter when she was little.  I love the colors.

Sandy, a dear lady who taught me to knit many moons ago made this paper pieced pillow for me.  Back when she made it, I didn't even know what paper piecing was.  My quilting skills have come a long way since then.

I put together this picture for my dining room one day when I was feeling creative and probably didn't feel like doing housework (which is everyday!).

My son, who is in college now, made this puzzle in wood shop for me when he was in the seventh grade.  It is out year round, I love it!

I would like to thank Michelle from  Shabby Creations for my new blog design.  I am thrilled with the way it turned out.  Check out her portfolio for more pictures of her beautiful designs.

Hugs and smiles,
