Christmas Gifts...

Merry Christmas!

Just a few more days until the big day!  How are your Christmas preparations coming ready?  We just finished up our shopping this afternoon.  The crowds weren't too bad.  Lunch with my husband and a peppermint mocha coffee to finish off the trip.  Now it's time to wrap the gifts!

I made a few crafty items this year to give as presents.  I have a massage therapist that I see monthly for my sciatica.  Lilley is a dear sweet person and does a great job.  I thought she might appreciate a few handmade gifts...

First up is a cowl neck scarf ...

I saw the tutorial on YouTube.  It uses a P size crochet hook and the stitch is half double crochet, so easy!  I made a similar one for my sister's birthday.

Next up, is a clay bowl stamped with snowflakes...

I made four more similar to this one for my sisters for Christmas.  I saw a tutorial on The Pink Envelope-Cynde Whitlow.  We got together last weekend for my sister, Lucretia's birthday.

And, my last gift for Lilley is a little treat gift for her filled with peppermint sticks...

Well, that's all for now.  I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a new year filled with joyous blessings!  Thank you so much for dropping by today!  Take care!
