Christmas Through the Year - Dec

Been working hard making up time for all those months I didn't get a gift made for Allie's CTY (LOL)!  It's working.  Here's a couple of items I finished up....

First up, I finished the Holiday placemats for my daughter-in-law-to-be.  She loves green and placemats, so she should be pleased with these.  I also got her an assortment of olive oils from Olive Oils and More.  I have a couple of varieties from them and LOVE them (blood orange and butter flavored), and I know Santha will, too.  She's quite a cook.


The second project completed today was these Christmas Doggie Biscuits for the GrandPuppies.  I made up a jar for their parents to bake up more when these are gone.  There are 3 varieties -- pumpkin-peanut butter, beef flavored, and plain.  I got one recipe from a friend, and the pumpkin-peanut butter one from the net.  Hope they like them.  The jar is an old one from my Mom's collection of canning jars.  So art-deco a cool, huh.  I think Julie will love it, too.





Tomorrow, I'm making matching napkins for those placemats.

Wishing you all happy sewing and crafting and hoping you're getting all you projects finished up, too ;)
Peace and Love,

Karen

  1. Your placemats are lovely, and your doggy biscuits look good enough to put on the holiday dessert table, lol!

    I've only ever tried regular savory olive oil before (garlic, and I think red pepper or something) - I wonder what kind of recipe you would use blood orange olive oil in?! Ohhhh maybe on spinach salad?! Wouldn't that be a kick!

  5. The embroidery on the placemats for your daughter-in-law to be are very pretty. I think everyone missed a month or two, but at least you caught up.
