I had the plaid Christmas tablecloth that my mother-in-law used for years. I made 2 Christmas tree skirts for my children and have a nice piece left to make a table runner for my husband. Our children were so thrilled to have this remembrance of their grandma! These are wonderful ideas–they mean so much to the recipient and are so satisfying for the crafter.


Been making pillows for years for remembrance projects. My freinds seem to appreciate this the most,
