~Finished Projects~

I thought I would share a few crocheted and knitted projects that I made for gifts. First is this red and white crocheted afghan, it was a gift to our home. A fun and quick afghan to make.


This baby girl crocheted blanket and knitted sweater was a gift for my niece Christine who had the most beautiful baby girl named Heidi two months ago.
Also for Heidi a knitted blanket and hat.

Another baby gift crocheted blanket and knitted hat. This was for our niece Amber who we (thought) was having a baby girl, but it's a boy who will be born this Friday Dec. 11 and we can't wait to meet him. So for now I will save this gift for the next baby girl to be born.
A quick sewing project, this red and blue blanket was for our Grandson Ty who love Cars and Optimus Prime! These are quick blankets that all the kids love. I sewed 11 pockets into Ty's blanket for him to keep his cars. The blanket is reversible.


A brown, green and white crocheted blanket and hat's were a gift for our niece Amber, who is having a baby boy who's name will be Logan and will be born this Friday Dec. 11.

I 'm still working on our giveaway gift for our upcoming 100th post. I am trying to post more so I can get to the 100th post.

My fingers have been very busy every day while resting on the couch. I can't wait to show you what I've been working on for our first giveaway.

Until the next post we wish you all good heath and the love of your family during the Christmas Season!

Hi Elizabeth, your handmade gifts are beautifully made!
You've must have spent so many hours completing all these items, but I think its more satisfying to give. I'm sure they will be appreciated.
I have done some knitting in the pass but unfortunatley I don't find that so easy as sewing.

Take care & Kind Regards

Elizabeth! Beautiful work! Do you know where I can get the directions for the first afghan.....th red and white one? I reeeeeeally like it!

Hi Elizabeth,
You are so creative--even on the couch with your foot elevated! As always your work is perfect. You are so talented. Is the white afghan with the red lines difficult?

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas.

Your gifts are beautiful. I can't believe you have finished so much in such a short time. The baby items are so precious. Love the little blanket that has pockets for cars. What little boy wouldn't love that. But I have to say my favorite is the red and white afghan. I can't believe you made it. It looks so professional. I think it belongs in my home. You'll see why on my next post.
I'm happy your kids are coming to help you decorate. They will have fun and love being able to do it for you. Sit back and enjoy.
