Grape Jelly on White Bread

Finally finished the quilt for our dear granddaughter who has been away at college.   While she was home visiting for Easter, I unveiled the surprise.  She loves it, especially the name....Grape Jelly on White Bread.  She says that it captures her inner child.  I love how college kids think.  It's so rewarding to make someone happy just using what's on hand.....a total stash quilt.   Also, it was a joint effort with my DH.  What a pleasure it was to work together on something special for someone special to us.  We are blessed.

Peeps Parade

Couldn't resist making these peeps for the grandkids.  Found this free pattern from a Google search.   The pattern called for beads for eyes and nose.  I chose to embroidered these features.  They were really fun and quick to make.  Will probably make a few more to leave in my gift stash.  Will also work well as gift tags for baby gifts.  Think I'll even adapt pattern to make snowmen for Christmas gift tags.  Possibilities are endless!
Easter Blessings to all.

Here's a close-up of one.

Birthday Postcard

A dear friend recently celebrated her birthday, which gave me good reason to hand quilt another special postcard.  As she is a collector of all things "Sunflower" (she actually has a sunflower room), I thought it appropriate to make this to add to her display.   Birthday Blessings to you, my friend.

Finished Future Gifts

Have been getting a head start on my gift stash for the year.  Sometimes I know who I am making them for.  Other times, after they've been completed,  the perfect person they were meant for comes to mind.
These neon pink socks are a special order for 
my daughter to give to someone special to her.

These are still waiting to tell me who they belong to!
