I decided after several interested comments on my last post that I really must get around to using and posting about the scrabble tiles for three Christmas gifts. They will be for Hubby’s brother and sisters. (I didn’t want to keep you in suspense any longer Bekki 😉
So what was it all about? Well this gift idea came from something similar one of my cousins made us last year and here they are!
There is the family surname (I’ve blurred that out) and then each family member’s name laid out like a crossword.
I painted the backgrounds to go with their colour schemes.
They are framed in these box frames from the Range. They are just deep enough to take the depth of the scrabble tiles. I purchased those on ebay and was able to specify which letters and quantity of each letter I needed. They were such fun to make and a nice quick gift too!
I have also got a couple of photos of the other Amish puzzle ball.
And ‘feeling dotty’ shawl number two is finished, a silver grey this time, only three more to go before Christmas!!!
I also had two books I ordered for the Secret Santa arrive, one for the stitching entry and the other for the yarny one.
I took advantage of a flash sale to get these and a couple of other gifts drastically reduced 🙂
I feel like a child again every time I get parcels in the post at this time of year!
It’s Josh’s birthday tomorrow and his party later today so I must dash, have a great and creative week!!
