Grandma's salt and pepper shakers look onto my hard work! I don't ever remember her putting up raspberry preserves, but I do remember her pillowcases with embroidery. What I wouldn't give to have a few of those now! This is my first attempt and lots more practice is needed, but I like it!
Now let's all cross our fingers that at about 3:00 tomorrow when my 24 hours of set time has completed, that I have honest to goodness for the first time ever made my own JAM!
Other notes - We celebrated Grammie's birthday a bit early - I made her a library book bag and a cute little needle point clutch (no pic..duh!) It was so cute cause I used some swarovski hot fix crystals for the first time on it! Those can be addicting! This is the birthday girl, Max and Oscar-boy.
Alica Paulson's Jane Market Bagpattern - I did my first needle turn applique and then hid all of my mistakes with some embroidery! Smile - that embroidery is comin' in handy! When I did the panel, I did not take into account how the flower stem would mostly be on the bottom of the bag....Oh well - another lesson!
And the back...
