Show & Tell

This week for Show and Tell I want to share a post I read on another blog. I read Sue at Plays with Needles every day, mostly for the wonderful pictures she posts. Sometimes they are of her needlework projects, sometimes they show the swims she's done, sometimes they have her son or her nieces as the focus.

On Friday Sue posted about her niece who is leaving for a semester abroad. Being a wonderfully crafty person, Sue (with the help of her son) made a special gift for her niece to take with her. Click here to go check it out.

I've given homemade gifts before (usually scrapbook albums, but sometimes other things), but Sue's gift really takes the cake, in my opinion. Have you ever given an gift like this? Are you inspired to now?!

It will only take a minute, so I hope you do click on over!

You are right that umbrella is very awesome.

Thanks for the comment. It is totally ok to laugh. I would if I wasn't so entirely mortified!

BTW, Did you get the book. I think it should have technically been there by today.

Wow...that is an amazing gift. I've given some good gifts but that just might top most of them.

What a great gift. Thanks for the link, I never would have seen it otherwise.

I've made some creative gifts before, but never one so colorful!
