Proud moments and more.......


Brrrrrrr.......from the Carolinas~

Hello my friends! Happy Sunday evening..... There has been a little flurry here this week.... Not talking about the flurries that so many of you are having.... But, finishing activity in my craft room... Like alot of you guys, I've done some organizing, purging and basically getting things back in a routine~ I thought I'd share a few photos of gifts sets you guys asked me to help you with.... So, please take a look ~~

image
Project rolls remain popular gifts for friends... This lady felt like her 2 BFF stitching friends along with herself needed matching project rolls....

image
I make them in the 20" length so you can roll up your linen in the roll for protection....

image
I like to add a little bling where the tying ribbons are attached~

image
The goodies are 34.00 each; plus mailing~ contact me at lriggsbee@nc.rr.com if interested.....

More gift sets were being envisioned this week....
image
This customer wanted her tea loving friends to be gifted 7" x 9" bags to hold their favorite tea bags, spoons & sweeteners as they gathered to stitch... Wasn't that the sweetest idea???

image
Fully lined; french seams~

image
The tiniest of teapot charms were attached as zipper pulls.... Can't you hear the stitching chatter now as they sip hot tea and stitch??

I can't let another blogpost past by without spotlighting a most proud moment for our family.... Humor me as I share photos, proud parent moments, of our youngest childs college graduation..... December brought on not only Christmas celebrations but milestone celebrations for the Riggsbee family~

image

image
Phillips graduation was a culmination of years of his hard work... This is true relief you are seeing here!

image

image
My husband is here with both of our sons~~We are very proud parents!!

That's it for tonight..... Have a great week..... Stay safe and warm with lots of stitching time!!!!!
