I am still around

Christmas has arrived at the Power's House.

Although I have not blogged for a really long time I have not been idle.
I have been quite busy with lots of gifts to make and purchase for special friends. As a non driver I like to give a gift as a thank you to my many friends who so generously drive me each week to our various group meetings, without these wonderful people around me I would not be able to belong to the groups I belong to. They are all great friends.

Thread catchers and pin cushions to match.

Covered coat hangers and door cushions.

In November our new dining room setting arrived and I just love it. There is a large mirror to go up behind the dresser once the mirror frame has been painted.

I usually try to make a Christmas decoration or wall hanging each year for our home. This year I have made this cute Santa hanger from a pattern by Nancy Halvorsen. It was a mantle runner but we don't have a fire place mantle so I chose to do a elongated version to hang right here in the kitchen.

Recently I helped my Grand daughter Kaitlyn make this really cute cushion for her Mum. Her foot and handprints form the reindeer and I stitched it into a comfy cushion for her Mum's computer chair.
