Some Gifts for a Friend...

 I have a good friend that I sometimes sew with, and we normally try to get together right after Christmas. Well, she got very ill and has just started recuperating. I really hated that she was so sick, but in the end, it gave me more time to work on her gifts. 
 She and her husband recently bought a camper, and it needed a little "brightening up." LOL

The design I put on this pillow was actually one that she had pinned on Pinterest. It came from Urban Threads, and it is the raggy applique. She loved it, and I was so thrilled. I added the rest, and did this with two hoopings on my machine.
  Of course, she needed a few cute little dish towels. We both love to embroider and embellish dish towels. I found these road signs on www.emblibrary.com, and I just couldn't resist. 
  Last, I made her a sewing machine cover from an idea I got off of Pinterest. I love that place! This was fun, and I plan on making myself one too. The applique monogram came from Planet Applique. She loved these fabrics I found at Hancock's.
   Now it's time to do some things for my grandson, Cayden, who will be 7 this Friday. I just can't believe he is almost 7 years old! 

Thanks for looking!
