Special Gifts

My sister, Melissa has been in town for the past couple of weeks and we have been having lots of fun "crafting." She made the girls nightcaps yesterday, and we have plans to make the boys some cowboy aprons with jean pockets this weekend. I wanted to show you some knitted things she made for the girls and Benjamin.

Grace was so excited to recieve this soft knitted pillow. She loves the horse, of course! Melissa did all of the embroidery without a pattern!

Here is Emily's pillow. The roses are actually knitted and then attached to the front. I wish you could see it in person, it's just beautiful!

She made Benjamin the neatest scarf. This is her also her own design - an amazing rocketship and star!

Sounds like you are very lucky! I was an only child...found out when I was 20 I have a half brother...bit of an age difference.

Oh my goodness, your sister is very talented! I could never do free hand embroidery like that. Everything is beautiful. Did you two sisters recieve your creative and artistic talents from your parents?

All I can say is "wow", your sister does beautiful work all without patterns --- amazing!

I'm loving the rose pillow. It's just lovely.

Tell her she a very talented knitter!

WOW, she's very talented. My mom quilts and would love to pass on the craft to me or my sister, but I don't have the patience for it. However, I have seen some recent pictures of fringed quilts and my mom says she will teach me that. My daughter wants to work on some cross-stitch together during the winter months. I'm looking forward to it!
