Sewing Christmas

Today find's us at our third installment of "Sewing Christmas" our goal of making Christmas gifts each month.  This month's creations come to us by the very talented hands of my Mom, Helen.

I had asked my Mom, at Christmas, if she would make some of her beautiful felt ornaments that could be tucked away for gifts.  She showed up on Friday with my Dad and some wonderful treasures.

My Mom loves to cross stitch and has taken up quilting in recent years.  I have always loved her ornaments and have enjoyed them since I was small.

The felt kits are becoming harder and harder to find, making me cherish the pieces that she has created throughout the years.

This little cupcake looks good enough to eat!  If you have a Christmas gift idea to share, please join me through the link below.  Blessings!



  1. Oh my! Your Mom's ornaments are so cute. I love snowmen and those are the cutest. You are right, the cupcake looks delicious, as does the whole plate of "goodies". Thanks for sharing your Mom's talent. I'm having picture issues, but hope to have mine up in a bit.
