Birthday Gifts

Friday was my daughter's 24th birthday. Much of the crafting I have been completing recently were gifts for her, thus I haven't been able to share them. Hubby and I visited her yesterday so today I can show you what I made.
I cross-stitched another apron. 


 This was supposed to be a Christmas gift, but I ran out of time and I knew her birthday was close by. My daughter likes to have cupcakes instead of cake for her birthday. I think the middle one would appeal to her because she is a vanilla cake with vanilla icing kind of girl. 
This was a printed cross-stitch apron kit, but you had to supply your own floss. 
I really like the way it came out.
I also used that reflective yarn that I mentioned a few posts ago. I made her an ear-warmer with it.
It is black with a silvery reflective yarn. It is considered a bulky yarn. I hope she gets good use of it. I found the pattern here. It was super easy to crochet. I could have finished it in one night had I been really awake. As it is it took just two evenings to totally finish. I made the flower in the same bulky yarn instead of the worsted weight recommended.
I am joining Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching today. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching. I hope to get back to working on my mom's vest  my table runner and Large Cross-stitch #1 asap.
Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Such cute cupcakes. Those ear warmers would come in handy for me today with the drizzly snow I'm looking at out the window.

  12. Great birthday gift ideas! Thanks for sharing these ideas here. I am looking for wedding gift ideas for my cousin. She will have an outdoor ceremony at popular wedding venues Los Angeles. Quite confused on what to gift her.
