It's almost Christmas, and I am so glad that I was able to get most of my gifts purchased and created earlier in the month.
My mother became ill suddenly, and I was not able to spend time at my sewing machine or blogging this past week. She is much better now... and that is such a blessing!!
I did want to share some pictures of some of the things that I have made for the holiday season.

We had a fun day at the craft bazaar, even though we didn't sell very much.
Now, on to gifts....
One of the most fun items that I made this season, was a paper pieced handbell block! I have been in a handbell choir for many, many years in various churches. I finally found a beautiful paper pieced pattern to make for our bell choir director! (http://www.paperpanache.com/free/simplereqs/bell.htm)

I machine embroidered our choir name and year, and the Presbyterian Church symbol.
It is a mug rug size, but I added a small hanging loop on the back so she can hang it up near her piano.
Off to go shopping with my husband. He asked me what I wanted for Christmas, and I
Wishing you and your family a season of delight and blessings!
