Holiday gifts and a blog break

Hi all!  
I bet you're all busy busy now getting ready for the holiday celebration and the gifts preparation...

Today, I'd like to show you some of the handmade gift items that I made so far.   Due to the lack of time, I was able to work on quick projects only this year.  Also, for some of the handmade gifts I made, I forgot to take pictures!  So, these are just a portion of handmade gift items, but I still wanted to show them here...

For this Christmas, I made a couple of these simple reversible coasters for gifts.  
And here are one of my favorites.

I really like these apple prints from Alexander Henry Farmdale Delicious collection.
They are so modern yet warm!

This pencil pouch is made of Echino bird fabric.
This deep purple is my favorite color.

A small wood bead is attached to the zipper pull.

This one is  a simple key fob made of French Soleiado fabric in the center.
I used light blue cotton webbing to match with the floral fabric.

I also made several of these fabric rag wreaths for gifts.  (See my tutorial here).  As far as I can remember, I think I've made a total of seven of these wreaths as gifts this year. 

I really enjoy making these fabric rag wreaths.

 And BTW look what I received in mail from my dear blog friend, cocostitch...

Beautifully patchworked logcabin coaster and gourmet chocolates
were packed inside!

 Isn't this log cabin coaster gorgeous?  I love, love, love the cute bird in the middle!! She sells many other lovelies in her shop, so check it out if you haven't yet.

And last but not least, I want to let you know that I will be taking a short break from blogging.  We will be out of town for a while to visit our relative who lives out of state.  My shop, will be temporarily closed, also...

I look forward to return to blog posting and to reopen my shop sometime early next year.  Meanwhile, I wish you all have a wonderful Christmas and a new year with your loved ones.  

With best wishes throughout this holiday season,
Amy  xoxo

Hope to see you all soon ;)

I just wanted to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I've really enjoyed reading your blog throughout the year. Thanks for all your effort you make to put up fun and informative posts!

My japanese friend lent me her "Cotton Time" magazines, and the crafts reminded me of you!
