look what I made

Wednesday, December 09, 2009

Just a quick blog (for my points) to share the Christmas basket I made at my sister's on Sunday.
We do this every year, collecting greens one day, and making baskets the next. The do-dads and flowers are from the dollar store so it makes a great inexpensive gift. People love receiving them.






Oh, oh, WAY past mt bedtime.

    I'm so impressed that you can do that-I love homemade things and I Used to like to cross stitch. It's really pretty.

    It's absolutely beautiful Elizabeth. There's nothing nicer that gathering the greens from your own yard (they charge a fortune for a couple of boughs at the garden center). And you can't go wrong with the dollar store. I buy all my batteries for Christmas from there. emoticon

    How fun doing this together. I miss doing things like that with my sisters. But, I have found some new "sisters" here to do crafting with. I love your basket.

    The baskets look lovely. I used to do crafts but find I have less and less time to do them. If I'm not in bed by 9:30, I cannot handle the next day. I must be getting old. LOL!

Hugs,
Marty
