Retirement Gifts and Gardening

It's Another Beautiful Saturday!  Hope you are enjoying your weekend. 



A colleague of mine that I've worked with for the last 10 years decided to retire.   He's going to enjoy this next chapter of his life in his garden.  I thought that it would be appropriate to create a little basket.

What fun it was creating so many little gifts.

Here's the table where everything was setup:

The box on the right is a money box I created to put all the "seed money" we collected for him.

Here's a close up:

Anyway, it was good to take a little time and whip up something wonderful.

Enjoy the rest of your wonderful day!

This is fantastic, Bek! I particularly like the "seed money" idea for a gardener. Very clever!

What a sweet, thoughtful way to say so long to your coworker! I'm sure he will look on your gifts with great joy and his "seed money" will be put to good use! So very kind of you…

Warm Little Sweetness

I must admit that I have become quite fond of making little bitty sweaters.   It all started on a recent trek to India traveling for business. I needed to carry just enough yarn to keep my busy bee hands occupied during the evenings in my hotel room. There are just so many hats a person can make, right?  Anyway, having limited quantities of yarn, I decided to give a small sweater a go.  This is the first one I created. I had just the perfect little buttons to add! (It really is amazing what one might find in their cosmetic bag) I love it.  This sweater is also featured on the Pinque Peacock blog   since I used her buttons.  (Go visit and see the buttons up close) This makes the sweater a really one of a kind project! This next one is perfect for a little preemie.  It's so tiny, but features a great big snowflake! Close up of the snowflake…. I also sewed on one of the StampinUp! Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  I think it finished it off nice
