Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

More Cute Stuff

One of my daughters pointed out this cute idea on Pinterest recently:
It's a travel pillowcase with a handle and a pocket for keeping books, IPods, etc.  How cute is that!  The original post came from Amazing Mae.  I have 5 "young" grandchildren and 3 "old" grandchildren.  I made pillowcases for the 5 young ones and got each a new pillow.  I think they'll love this!

And then I spied some of my Ghastlies fabric that I hadn't used and made this for another grandchild...one of the "old" ones:

It's a roll-up carrying case for knitting needles and other necessaries for that craft.  Don't you love the knitting aunts?  :)

I don't want to say it too loud but I think I've finished my Christmas sewing.  Knock on wood.  Cross my fingers.  And it's not even Christmas Eve!

  4. Wonderful pillows...but be careful if the kids are little...I can see the loop getting wrapped around necks. How awful that would be. Take care, and have a wonderful Christmas!
