The girls made little felt pocket bags, MakeItBakeIt ornaments (I bought some at a thrift store and one was just like the one my brother made when we were children), and these t-shirts.
Mom worked on K's baby quilt (yes K will be three when she gets it) and I embroidered this for an apron that I gave my Dad for his birthday. He is quite the chef and specializes in breads. He makes home-made without a bread machine. He does crazy things like make wild sourdough starter or grind his own grains. He is pretty cool.
We bought some milk glass vases and a set of four saucers made in Japan at Goodwill. We used them to make cupcake pedestals, an idea that I stole from Judy. We also made a special one for my Dad which will show up in a later post. My Mom crocheted the cupcake for me to use as part of the display (the cupcake is not for sale) as we are putting the pedestals in a shop near my parent's and thought a visual would be helpful. It is a simple little project and doubles as a small gift package. I am now learning how to crochet.
