I just love the holidays with children. I love their wide eyed innocense....the looks of love and surprise. Our son, his girlfriend and her children will be joining us for Christmas this year.
We are excited to have them for our Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve. If you're not familiar with the celebration check out this site
http://www.sevenfishesblog.com/We have made a date with Danny's brother and wife to attend next year the feast in Fairmont , WV. Doesn't it sound cool. Of course you have to love all kinds of fish and be willing to taste everything.
Now back to the pencil holders. I love this set for Christmas. It is perfect for school parties. They stitch in just a few minutes and you can add a pencil or candy cane for the kids.
Here is the package....I just used felt with these but you can add material if you'd like. Each one is done so you can add material before the designs are stitched out in their entirety
Wouldn't the bells look great with pretty material? Be sure and cut out that area between the bells. I made them so you can add a bow and pom pom for the ringer. I used a jewel for a little bling.You could add a little bling on the snowflake also. It has fringe. I think it is really cute.
These designs are on sale right now with intro pricing. They can be found here
This is me. I live in Acworth, Ga., just outside and to the north of Atlanta. I was raised in Indiana and Arizona, my two most favorite places to visit. I have a wonderful husband and two grown boys.
I am owned by 5 dogs, Toaster, Cracker, Maggie, Saddie and Crosby . My husband and I want to have a kennel when we grow up. We both love dogs. Never in my life have I owned 5 dogs but now can not imagine living without them. They are a lot of work and expensive to feed, which is why I am always looking for innovative ways to provide good food for them. Right now its on an alternating basis...one eats one day and the next day someone else eats.......lol.....not really but some days we wish. We do feed our dogs homemade food void of all processed dog foods.
I hope this blog with let you know a little more about me and my website , Sapphire Stitches. It is here I will post pictures of projects I made and my customers have made.
