What have I been doing?

I have been sewing some Christmas Gifts.
Some are for Family and some are for Friends

Some cute things are for big girls

Some are for little girls

Making gifts takes lots of time,
but it is the way to get into the Christmas Spirit.

Giving of yourself and time and talents
is the true meaning of Christmas.

I could buy all this stuff, but it is the gift of self
 that blesses the giver. 

When I sew for someone, I invest a part of me in that person.
I am invested in their happiness and life.

I have spent my life to enrich theirs.

And, God enriches me.


It really is more blessed to give than to receive.


  1. Donna God has blessed you with this gift, I am sure he is pleaed with how you share it with those you love. Well done my friend....Hugs

  2. I too, love to make things for people. It is so much more fun than going out and buying a gift. Your aprons are great! You have been a busy gal. Love & blessings from NC!

  3. I agree that making a gift is much more personal than buying something off the shelf. I love the aprons and that little girl's hat with the big flower is precious. Hope you have a wonderful holidday season.

  4. You are a very talented seamstress, Donna. Your gifts will be loved!

  5. What a blessing to receive a hand-made gift. To know that someone has taken the time to choose a special fabric, to find the right pattern, to add all of the little extras and to sew it all together with love - wow. THAT is what Christmas and gift-giving is all about.
    I know your recipients will feel so blessed.

  6. I agree with you about home-made gifts. I've made prayer shawls for all my kids and grands this year.

  7. I love gifts made just for me. And I love giving gifts I made to others. It sounds like you keep busy even in your retirement years. Our God must be so pleased with your sweet spirit and willingness to give of yourself to others.
