Happy New Year to all of you. Yes it is 2015, hard to believe. 2014 went so fast. The Lord has been so good to me and my family. Many changes are occurring. My daughter Tiffany and her family are moving closer and there is a new grandchild on the way.
Last year I began to think of Christmases a century ago when people took time to make the gifts that they would exchange with one another. Oh it is wonderful to receive a gift card or a store bought gift, yes they are appreciated. But think about the gift that someone took the time to make and the love that went into it. So I decided to make some of the gifts that Jim and I would give. Yes we bought some gifts also, but I just thought it would be nice to make something as well. So I thought I would share with you some of the things I made to inspire you to think about possibly creating gifts to give the old fashion way.

|I made a couple of quilts this one is for Abby.|
|This quilt is for Krisy.|
|I also made snack mats (like mug rugs), this is Abby's and the one below is Kristy's.|
|For my Mom I embroidered embellished two pillowcases. She is a widow so I made one that says Mom and the other says Grandma.|
Well is this just some of the things I have been busy making. I am already planning for 2015. I would like to encourage you to think about making some gifts to give.
Thanks for stopping by and visiting me here in Nana's Parlor. Stop by any time, you are always welcome.
Love, hugs and God bless you,
