  • Not Really Bragging

    Hi folks, I'm not really bragging here, just thought I'd share some pics of the stuff I've made for Christmas gifts.

    This angel candle holder is for my best friend Ali and her significant other Jim. It's a pattern from Berry Basket, I found in one of their surprise packs.

    The bedroom lamps are for my daughter Jen & hubby Paul. This pattern is from Lora S. Irish and are featured in SSW # 23 They're suppose to be lanterns, but I turned them into lamps.

    The desktop frames are for the young girl who works in my office, she's getting married in June. That's her and her finance on the left, the baby is just a generic that came with the frame. This is also a Berry Basket pattern.

    This Rosemailing Clock has gone to Scotland, to the mother of one of my co-workers. It looks more Irish then Scottish, but greens her favorite color!

    Thanks for looking
    I hope everyone has a great Christmas

      Everything is VERY nice, and certainly brag-worthy! Those lamps caught my eye, too, very unusual.

        I agree with Pete. If I had made those I'd be popping buttons on my shirt left and right!

            They're all really nicely done, Marsha - you have lucky friends and relations -I especially like the lights - I keep looking at that pattern in the magazine and meaning to try it .. what did you use behind the scrollsawed sections?

              Thanks All for the kind words. I just used a piece of regular paper. The lighting fixture is very small and only takes a 15w bulb, so I don't think there's any risk of fire. We had them on for quite awhile and they didn't generate any heat.

                        Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

                        I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

                        These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
