I belong to a Small Quilts Group online and we had a Secret Santa swap this year. These are pictures of the gifts I received. The basket was hand made. Don't you just love the candy cane fabric!
I made 19 of these little felt gingerbread men as gifts! Aren't they adorable!
I made these two yo yo Christmas trees as gifts to different people.
I did these cross stitch pin keeps for a friend. She also got the bowl and one of the yo yo trees above! These were quick and fun to make!
Two of my Christmas trees. The quilt was a gift to me.
I made this about 2 years ago or so. This year I made four of them - one for each of my kids and their families.
I had thought I would take a nice long break from "crafting" - at least until the middle or end of January but already I'm itching to do some quilting and/or cross stitch and whatever else comes to mind. The Small Quilt Talk group's January small quilt challenge is a bear claw quilt and I just might tackle that. I want to start a Jane Harris sampler which is huge so it will be a while before it's finished. I'm going to put one of my rugs on the frame with the hopes of finishing it soon as I've three that I've started but not finished hooking not to mention binding, etc. I've signed up for two hook-ins - one in April in Amish Country (Ohio) and the other in May in Chagrin Falls (Ohio) sponsored by the Western Reserve Rug Hooking guild. My friend, Sharon, and I are planning to check out a local quilt guild and possibly join it. I'm actually thankful for the upcoming cold weather so I won't be tempted to be zipping around here and there instead of crafting! I already have a couple of ideas for Christmas gifts next year but I just might have to go and buy some more fat quarters more in the colors I'd like to so them in.
I hope you have a very healthy and Happy New Year!
Thanks for stopping by!
How is everyone else doing? Are you tired of crafting and need a break? Are you already ready to pick up something to do?
