Another finish...and Wedding Gifts

I forget to share a few other photos of finishes.  This first photo is one I finished a couple days ago and it goes to Son and DIL to hang for Christmas Holiday Time.

DIL likes "circles" for quilting.


For weddings I always make a "Christmas Bag" of assorted Christmas goodies.  No matter when the wedding is, I do this - always have, always will.  Below are the assorted goodies I put in our niece's Wedding Christmas Present this summer when we attended her wedding in August.

Assorted lace ornaments and a couple stuffed ones.

Long lace table runner.
Her new hubby is a local policeman.

A redwork doily

Tabletopper with snowflake appliques.

Had to label the back for them.


 And today - Treadmill done, doggie doo detail done (say that ten times,  LOL), bed made, two cups of coffee and cereal done....and now for a shower and fresh PJs for a day in my sewing room.

What's on your agenda for today?

Oh, that is a very pretty quilt for Christmas. Great pattern too.
What a great idea to make a goodie bag for the couple.

I love your idea of a bag of Christmas goodies for the Newlyweds. It takes so long to build up a collection of Christmas decorations. Very special that you get them started. I'm sure they'll treasure them for many Christmas holidays to come.

The Christmas quilt is fantastic. Love the background fabric you chose to use. I need to remember your idea of some hand made Christmas ornaments - it's a really good one.
