This Was Fun...

 I dipped into my "wooly" stash and chose a few fabric colors for this project.
I wanted to make a little something extra for our granddaughters' gifts. I
actually got this idea from the "Wee Folks" book I recently shared with you.

I chose floss colors, and then started drawing my designs. Of course,
there's a Corgi for Granddaughter #2. She's crazy about our little boy.
I cut out the components, sewed them to the ground fabric, and then 
embroidered the floral designs. I just free-handed them as I went along.
 I thought a pretty bluebird design would be perfect for Granddaughter #1.
(Although the ground fabric looks brown in this photo, it's actually green.)
 After two days of stitching, I have two sweet coin purses for our girls.
 We'll tuck a little pocket money into them before they're wrapped up.
I hope they like them and are able to use them for some time to come.

Good Morning Donna, Your grand-daughters will love them. I loved the armchair caddy that you made for your mom. Rooms at the nursing home are small and if she has a room-mate it can even be more so. The fingers are staying busy. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.
