Last Minute Gifts

I’m pushing through these last few projects that are left on my to-do list for Christmas giving.  Eek!  I’m a little behind.  Probably a bit ambitious, but you know, why not.  I put together a kitchen gift set for my boss, she’s an excellent cook and I know she’ll appreciate it.  Jacquie over at Tallgrass Prairie Studio has an awesome tutorial on how to make these great potholder/dishtowel sets.  (She also has a ton of other great info and tutorials.  If you haven’t visited her blog before – you’d better!) 

My other boss is a simple kind of guy, his famous quote is “if you can’t carry it in a backpack you probably don’t need it”.  How many bosses say that?!  So I made him some Chocolate Espresso Snowcaps and put them in this cute little box.  Yum!  My husband had also made grape jam earlier this fall and we are giving them each a jar. 

Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!  I’ve got a few more gifts to show off, so I might post some before Christmas or the day after.

  1. Love your blog! I couldn’t find the tutorial for the potholders on her website… have tons of extra fabric waiting for me. Would it be possible to post a direct link, please?

    It’s actually a downloadable pdf file. The tute is called “kitchen gift set tutorial”, you’ll have to scroll down a ways, it’ll be on the righthand side.

    I love that potholder!So cool. I’m pretty sure that despite my best efforts, I will get sucked into this quilting thing 😉 Gonna stick with mini quilts though if that ever happens!

    Great ideas! And the jam was wonderful – what a good gift. We made blackberry jam this summer, so it too got shipped with sewn gifts for the fam back home.
    Have a Merry Christmas and Wonderful New Year!!!
