A good reason to be missing in action in blogland

Well, I have some serious catching up to do on my matchbox postings. I am a whole week behind! I have so many orders to get completed and out the door by this Friday, I was afraid I was not going to get them all accomplished. Today, there looks like there may be hope. Still have some local orders to get taken care of, hopefully I can do them tomorrow. The sad thing is, my hopes for my Christmas Celebration have been ruined. I still may be able to get the chefs costume done for my grandson, but other than that, not much else. The list is a mile long.

 This is project # 1 and took me the longest time! Way longer than I expected it to of course. Does it look like an over-sized gift box?  I hope so! I had this old silverware box laying around, and this piece of lovely blue velvet. But what a challenge to bring it about! This is for a lady who collects rhinestone glitzie cocktail rings. This is to hold her collection. The idea was so cute, I had to give it a go. Sure hope I do not get into trouble!
 Project #2 is this great-grandma shirt. This was a lot of fun to do! All her Great Grand kids are represented by a pair of hands in their birthstone colors. How cute is that? Just love that font I used for the lettering. This came out really nice.

Project # 3 is this tote for a mom who LOVES to crochet. Pockets were requested. I also included a roll up case for her crochet hooks, and another pocket folder for patterns and row markers and such. Sure hope it is what was expected, and more!

Are you tired yet? I am, exhausted is more the word. Projects 4,5,and 6 are in the next post.
