"Twas the night........" Day 2 & A Holiday Give Away!

Twas' about 2 Months ago when our Leader Samm of Sew We Quilt, and Team Leader Marlene of Stitchin by the Lake were about to settle down with there brew, when an idea struck, and off to their Keyboards they flew~ Now G, Now I, Now F and T!  On I, On D, On E, A and S!
The next Morning, to what before my eyes did Appear but a New Blog Hop!  Still in my Kerchief, I sprung to the Keurig and back to the Computer!



Welcome Friends, I am so glad you are here to visit today!! 
Making Gifts to Share and Give is always a Delight for me, especially during the Holidays!!

Heather from A Reformed Heath'n sent me a Beautiful Quilted Journal with Pockets Inside!  I was going to make one for myself to Journal my 2015 Sewing and Quilting Adventures.  So I was so delighted when this arrived along with a Handmade Card~

Also was another beautifully made Gift.  Handwarmers, and Lavender Scented, Rice Filled Eye Bag.  Both of which have other uses as well.  A Handmade Bag full of Chocolates was a Sweet ending to my lovely set of Gifts!!  Thank~You Again so much Heather!!

Some of my ideas to Share with you today are these easy Ornament/Package Toppers,

So easy to make, just keep embellishing a Fabric Pinwheel.


Another Favorite that keep me busy throughout the year but a Great Stocking Stuffer, are my Lavender filled Dryer Sachets.  I make them Plain and sometimes I will add a little trimming to the front.


I am always into Pretty Towels as you have seen here before, so I tried this Pattern, from Little House Living  I have decided and ready to sew on now, a 3" Ruffle to the bottom

These I made with Never been used Vintage Canon Towels.  Very Easy, and fun.

More things I would Love to share with you but the 'Sleigh' must move on!

I did send the following Items to Amy of Sew Incredibly Crazy, but I forgot to take a shot of the Apron.  That you will see on her Blog.

A Wonky Stacked Pincushion

Scarf, that is my favorite Pattern to Crochet~

Thank~You sew much for stopping by today, I hope you will stop by the other Bloggers in today's event.  I am sure they will have ideas that will put a Twinkle in your eye!

Wednesday, Nov. 12
