CHRISTMAS STITCHING AND TU SAL-----FINALLY!

I stitched both of my granddaughters pillows for their rooms. Here are the girls-and their pillows-as they opened their gifts.

This is Ann. Her room is decorated in LSU colors, so her pillow is LSU-themed. Even though my fingers bled while I put it together and members of my Alabama family fussed a little, here it is.



This is Grace-in case you can't tell! I stitched her pillow a year or so ago and finally got it finished-I thought! I saw the trim a few months back and added it. And nearly lost my mind .....never do that again. Lots of stitches and glue.



And here is the end-of-the-year addition to the TU Sal. And the balls' final stop. It's  LARGE jar that sat on top of my kitchen cabinets. Now it's at home in the den.  Boy, that's a lot of orts. But out comes the bowl again and it begins again.....

Love your pillows. I always root for LSU in football. I still have a soft spot for Les Miles, even though he left OK state!

That is alot of orts!

Lovely girls, I'll be they love their 'grandma pillows'. Better late than never with the Totally Useless Container. Great job too!
