Gifts for the Gals That Make My House Look Good!

And I can't forget my cleaning ladies. We have gals that come every Thursday and clean the main living areas of our house. They don't do the bedrooms or my sewing room but they take care of all the other rooms for us. Here's what I made for them. Each is getting a package with 4 handmade coasters. I used this pattern and they were soooo easy. I think I'll be making more of these for gifts next year!! I moodified the pattern slightly in order to use some charm squares that I already had from Moda's "Roman Holiday" line. The pattern calls for 4.5" squares so my coasters are a little bigger but I really don't know that I would want them to be any smaller than they are. The pattern is very forgiving!

Tomorrow I'll be making fleece scarves for my daughter's friends. I just have to make a quick trip to JoAnn's in the morning for some supplies and then I'll be making 7 embroidered scarves.

I love your coasters. They make such nice gifts. I made a few sets for my son's teachers. They really liked them.

Can't wait to see the scarves.

Looks like you've been busy, busy. All the gifts look great :)

That is my favorite pattern and I too use the charm square size - much easier to use a charm pack than to cut the 4.5" squares.
