Hand Made Gifts

This is the hen I was working on the other day when my sewing machine acted up and everything else went wrong. If you did not read about about that day, go scroll down a couple post.
Also I crocheted varigated dish clothes and pot holders to match.
I crocheted jar tops for preserves. I am fixing my kids a box with a lot of different hand made gifts, bread loafs, candies and whatever comes to mind. I have had two hen potholders for 10-12 years. I use them all the time. Need to make two more hens and I will be through. I thought about a basket at first, but then I saw the big round decorated boxes and got three of them. The boxes can be used afterwards to put stuff in and just set around with other decor. It has been fun doing this. I still have cookies and candies to make. Monday and Tuesday I will be making more Amish banana loafs and some more chocolate. My two grandsons next door sure love the chocolate.
Some ask me if I was making gifts for Christmas. The hen (?) is what I was working on when the machine acted up the other. Or is it a rooster.
Use your own imagination!

Rooster? A hen? It doesn't matter. It is beautiful. Best of all, it was made from the heart. You have neat ideas! God bless. Merry Christmas!

You've been busy!
We have the tree up and I put the lights on...tomorrow we'll put the rest of the decorations on...hopefully. I also dug out my gingerbread house plans, so we're going to work on that, and I also hope to make cookies for the kids to decorate. We have three extras right now, and I thought the 4 & 6 year old would enjoy all the preparations too.
