Secret Sister gifts I can share now

For the past 4+ years, I have been involved in Secret Sister swaps with the same group of gals from all over the US.  We have all become very close and some are like bestest friends. Every year before Christmas we do one called the 15 Days of Christmas where we send 15 gifts to one SS and they also send to one and so on.  Anyway, I always like to make a personalized stocking for my SS and fill it as much as I can with the gifts I have purchased.  Now that our swap is over, I can share a few of the gifts that I made for her.

So here is the stocking personalized with her name.  And so you can see the design better, a close-up for you.

It was hard to get a bright shot of the dove with you being able to still see it properly.  I pulled the colors from the fabric and the feathers actually look layered like feathers.  This design is a Sue Box Creation available here.  Her designs are beautiful so be sure to browse around.
I also embroidered her a tea towel and dish cloth for using during the holidays or even just display.

Aren't they the cutest little guys.  I am so hooked on embroidery and personalization.  

This little guy is one of my favorites.

And they are pretty cute too.

I especially wanted Cindy (my SS) to have her very own personalized stocking and she loved them and that's what counts:)  Glad you liked them Cindy {hugs}.
Since I wasn't able to "play" much after Christmas, I will be sharing projects that I did for the craft fair and before Christmas.  I hope to be playing this weekend or maybe today since it is my day off:)
Have fun today!
