Christmas Gifts

I made this table topper for my SIL for Christmas. After making it, we found the little teapot and cups in the perfect shade of blue to match the table topper. We also bought her some Youthberry tea--she liked her gifts!

The next time I am at her house, we are going to have some tea together!

I made my MIL this table topper. Her father was a bee keeper and the green fabric has bees on it. I finished up the hand stitching on the binding on our way to their house on Christmas day!

I made everyone in the family pillow cases. My neices' pillow cases had mittens on them. I made one like this for my daughter too.

These ones are for my husband and I. I purchaed the Gnome Santa fabric from Mad about Patchwork.

The top pillowcase is for my FIL. He is still in the hospital. The nurses liked the pillowcase and so did he! The tractor pillowcase belongs to my father. He worked on a farm when he came to Canada over 60 years ago. My brother received the golfing pillowcase and the last two, also made from the Santa Gnome fabric are for my BIL and SIL.  My MIL's pillowcase missed having its picture taken! Everyone was pleased with their gifts.

We spent the last few days spending time with family. It was a very snowy drive home tonight. Tomorrow will be a quiet day at home.

I am hoping to finish up some sewing projects after the holidays. I hope you and your families had a wonderful Christmas and wish all of you health and happiness in the new year.
