Quick Gifts to Make

Happy Thanksgiving to all. We will be celebrating Thanksgiving at my parents farm. We have so much to be thankful for -Dad's broken leg is healed, Mom is cancer free and we have added a new daughter-in-law to the family. Life is good.

I am comfortably settled into my fat jeans

and ready to take on the Thanksgiving feast.
12:30 cannot come quick enough. Yummy!

Now that Thanksgiving is here, we all know how quickly it will be Christmas. (Just 30 days away!)
Do you need a quick Christmas item for your house or a quick gift? (I think we would all agree...handmade gifts are the best to give and receive.)
Although there probably is not time to make an elaborate pieced quilt I have plenty of projects that are doable. Pictured below are several gift or decorating items that can be made in 1 day or less.

My newest pattern - just designed yesterday.
#WA 122 Cheers!
This pattern features three different wine bottle covers.
It only takes about an hour to make each one.
They would make great hostess' gifts.

#109 Christmas Hang-Ups
You could make one of these tags to tie around the wine bottle
or make some to use as gift tags.

Kit 501 Owlivia
We have kits available to make this little cutie.
Everything to make Owlivia is included except the stuffing.

These pillows use some fun vintage pins.
You can find the pins at thrift shops, on ebay or etsy.

Here is hoping you all are having a very happy and safe Thanksgiving.
Hope you find time to make a few handmade gifts this holiday season.
