Well now the holidays are over and the gifts have been opened and I am happy to report that my efforts in the Mom Cave were successful. Lots of happy recipients! I had such fun making the gifts and having a stress free Christmas in the process. Much thanks to my sister Nancy for motivating me and reminding me how much fun it can be to be quilting and sewing again!
Thought I would share pictures of the things that I made that kept me away from the blogs for a while since they have now been gifted and are no longer a secret! Hope you enjoy seeing them!
I think you can get the idea of why I had so much fun and why I had very little time for blogging since Thanksgiving. Can’t wait to get going on the next projects! Lots of ideas! I am so thankful that God blessed me with the ability and desire to create things with my hands and sewing machine and the myriad of other sewing tools. I love giving gifts that I have put a part of myself into, whether it be in creating a handmade item or finding just the perfect gift that I know will be a blessing to the recipient. What a joy it is to me to see a person enjoy what they have received. Making others happy—a great gift from God that I never want to lose sight of.
2 Corinthians 9:7 ESV
7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
I hope everyone had a very wonderful Christmas season with many blessings!
