Gifts. They are a thorn in my side. I always feel like the gifts I give are inadequate. But I'm doing my best and putting a lot of heart into them!
I made two of these Little ZZ runners as gifts. One for my girl, Elisabeth (that I never posted a picture of finished), and one for someone else. The someone else hasn't seen hers yet. It turned out so nicely that I decided to make one for a surprise for a woman at my church. I admire her very much. In fact, when I grow up, I want to be as selfless, kind, and loving as she. I am going to surprise her with this tomorrow. It is finished and measures 17-1/2" x 23-1/2".

Nothing quilt-y going on here, but I do have two new hairdos to show. I did the first one myself. It's called a waterfall braid. I liked it. Would probably look better if I let my hair curl at the ends.

Here's the finished product on my new mantle idea for this year. We have a big, long, mantle. I am no decorator. I combined a couple ideas I saw here and there. Wes cut out and nailed everything all together for me. That's my pine cone tree on the left side (by the J) spray painted gold.
