Lewis' Dad and Step-mom are wonderful people who have an honest appreciation of hand
made gifts. So, since money was a little tight...um, ok non-existant as far as gifts were concerned for extended family and they were more more than generous to us I thought it would be nice to put a gift basket together to take to them when we go for dinner later this week.
Since I know they love gingerbread cookies (how serendipitous) I'm putting in my chocolate chip gingerbread cookie recipe in a mix form and these...
They were fun to make and relatively simple. I used the Duck & Ducklings block and Churn Dash block from Leisure Arts Teach Yourself Blocks from the Past.
On the lighter hot pad of the two the foundation block is made from some of the fabric from my Fruitcake charm pack, the border I'm not sure of was from free gift with purchase, the darker of the two is made from my stash.
