Wonderful Christmas Gifts!








If you haven't check out my daughter's blog yet and you love knitting, sewing, fashion, and more, you must check it out http://www.linques.typepad.com/ . In this case, the apple did far from the tree-I really do not possess much in the way of crafting talent! That is not to say I don't try-but my daughter Lindsey (and Katherine as well) really did get their talents from my Mom and not me! My Mom even owned a needlepoint shop called the "Nasty Needles"!

Lindsey made this gorgeous green shawlette for me. I love the rich greens and hints of aqua in this, and it can be worn several ways!

One of my all time favorite colors is pink and this bright pink scarf is perfect with so many of my outfits, or just tucked in to my winter coat for a hint of color!

Lindsey also made these great washcloths for me-always handy, economical, and earth-friendly!

Where oh where did my reading glasses go? Oh, why of course, they're in this cute cute canvas glasses holder she also made me!

So be sure to check out her blog to see what she's been up to lately! I almost forgot to mention a few other things Lindsey has made! I have amazing quilts she has made me. She also made knitted/felted socks for my husband Bob and my son Mark!

If you were thinking of starting a project of your own maybe this will be the motivation you need!

Happy New Year!

Jen
