In addition to finally finishing the pin cushion for my Giveaway (see last post) I managed to make this 1600 quilt for my aunt Kat who lost pretty much everything to Sandy.
While she isn't a real aunt, she is one of those people you grow up around and love. She is actually my real aunt Gert's little sister.
She is currently living with her daughter's family. I'm hoping that this quilt made with love will give her a great start to getting her life back.
Next up is a small non quilted gift. I first saw this idea here
This is a great way to upgrade some Hersey mini Chocolates from ordinary to gift worthy.
I made mine using some double sided card stock that I picked up at Target's
This fuzzy picture is of the back.
My niece saw this and decided it would make a great gift tag if we did a
on plain cardstock instead of using printed card stock.
They are wrapped in bags from Wilton designed to hold chocolate covered pretzels. You get 20 bags in a package with ties. I did several versions, 1 with 3 pieces, 1 with 4 pieces and 1 with 5 pieces as seen here. I apparently neglected to take a shot of them. They all looked great. Once they were wrapped and tied I just trimmed the bag's down to a neat length.
Thanks Judy for such a super idea.
For anyone interested I cut the individule wraps at 1.5 x 3 inches and used double sided tape to attach it to itself. I cut the backing strip at 2 by 3.5,4.75 or 6 inches depending on if I used 3,4 or 5 pieces of chocolate. They are a pretty snug fit in the Wilton pretzel bag.
