Oh my, it’s been a while since I posted anything. What can an I say, I’ve been busy? Well yes I have been but I’m pretty sure we’ve all been very busy. Anyway this Monday morning I’m finally sitting down to write a blog post.
I belong to a group of quilters that exchanges handmade gifts every year. There are 12 of us but each individual only makes 5 gifts. We pick Christmas names when we arrive so that you don’t know who’s gift you are going to received. You bring 5 gifts and you leave with 5 gifts.
This year I made toiletry/make-up/sewing notions bag.
They start out as pre-made bags designed by Joy Mangano. I then take them apart and rebuild them using the “insides” for my new creation. I think they end up waaaaay cuter than how they come from the store.
Here are the 5 gifts I received.
A very cute Halloween table runner by Pat Adair. Love it!!!!
A very patriotic table runner by Carol Logue.
A perfect wall hanging (or in my case a new front door quilt) made by Nancy Post.
And last but not least………………….
A binding kit made by my BFF Marilyn Pond.
Thank you to everyone for all the wonderful gifts. There were many other great projects made that went to others, but I am delighted with what I received.
Now it’s time to start thinking about what to make for next year.
