Pifs





My other two pay-it-forward gifts have been received so I thought I would share those pictures.

Ginger requested a sheep or a Bible verse, so I combined those in a tiny Prairie Schooler-inspired pinkeep.

Jane is always posting pictures of her beautiful granddaughter, so I thought a little pillow celebrating her might be well-received. The design is a freebie from The Workbasket.

I have to make this a quick post as we are headed out the door to help some friends move today. Have a great weekend everyone!

Julie said...

Thank You! LOL I've been considering some ideas for a stitched gift to give to a friend of my mother's this Christmas. Your PS PIF is the PERFECT piece for her! She'll love it and it should be an easy and quick stitch.
I've been eyeing the WB freebie too. A good friend is pregnant and due in early January. I've been considering that pattern, but I just couldn't imagine it completed, well now I can and its PERFECT too! :-) Thank You! I am so excited, you've made my day!
