Isabella's Whimsy

handmade with love

Beginning to think about Christmas

With IsabellasWhimsy on Etsy I spend a lot of time looking at Etsy and seeing some pretty fun handmade items.  So this week on the blog I want to show you 3 Christmas items for your home, or for gifts, that I hope you will like.

First a hand made quilted tree skirt from PeggyGaylerDesigns.

After her wonderful, whimsical village is appliqued to the tree skirt foundation,  Peggy takes a lot of time with machine quilting a sky full of snowballs. The end result is a high quality family tradition for you. I encourage you to visit PeggyGaylerDesigns on Etsy to see all of her Christmas creations and many other lovely quilts for all year.

Next is a 12.5″ tall Scandinavian Reindeer from HappyDollsbyLesya.

Lesya has touched my heart with her sweet Christmas decorations, dolls, and creatures. I can see that she is well admired and has a successful shop. How does she manage to stuff those little arms and legs? She must be a very careful creator. All of her dolls and toys are made of cloth. You will be happily surprised at their appealing little faces when you visit HappyDollsbyLesya on Etsy.

The last Christmas item this week is from my own IsabellasWhimsy.

This is a set of 4 quilted coasters made with Scandinavian design fabric. They are 4.5″ square and come packaged in a celo bag tied with red and white baker’s twine. Just add a gift card or open and use yourself. I plan to add more Christmas items, so visit IsabellasWhimsy on Etsy to see if I have just what you are looking for.

Thank you for stopping by.

~Blessings,

He is Here! Grandson #2

oct-17-birthday-1-hr-old-_3

I’m so happy to say that grandson #2 has arrived safe and sound. Nolan was born on Monday, Oct. 17 at 10:03 pm weighing in at a lovely 7 lbs, 2 oz. Mommy, Daddy, and Baby spent their first night at home last night…wonder how that went…  Both parents are well-prepared to deal with whatever comes; Mommy is a labor and delivery nurse, Daddy is a paramedic in the ER of a major children’s hospital. My son expressed a little concern over handling the normal, non-crisis stuff. :0)

Now, it’s back to the sewing machine. I’m working on Paper Doll Quilts for a grandma friend of mine to give as Christmas gifts. Then there are more Christmas orders to fill as well as some regular orders.  If you want anything made for Christmas by Isabella’s Whimsy, don’t delay, my calendar is filling up fast – including trips to hold that new baby!

Fun Productivity

It’s my own Show-and-Tell day!

You may remember these mug rugs that I made last year…isabellaswhimsymushrooms2 cute, but nothing to write home about, or to even take home.  So I tried to step it up a notch. With a little snipping and stitching came up with these, now available in my Etsy shop.

And let’s not forget the holidays before Christmas and the whole season of Autumn. Here is my Patchwork Pumpkin

Thanks for looking. I love Show-and-Tell!
