More gifts

Here are a couple more gifts I made for the holidays. The above is from the same Martha Stewart issue with the vintage state bird embroidery patterns that I used for this. I think the patterns are so great. My sister is redoing her bedroom magenta and navy so I thought this would be good.

What do you make a 70 something man who doesn't really want anything and is someone who might not particularly appreciate craftiness? A big old heating pad cover. He was a scuba diver back in the day so I felt the fish would be good. Practical and snazzy.

These fabrics would make a cute quilt for a wee one. Great colors.
We went out to a party last night with the whole family and it was so great to see friends we hadn't seen in over a year. Sort of sad since we all live relatively close to each other. But one of my resolutions it to reconnect with certain folks so that ball is rolling.

I am going to make a heating pad cover myself this week. My kids lost the crappy fake flannel one that comes with it so I've been using a pillow case and that does NOT work. Good job.
