The gifts are as follows:
1) A set of throw pillows:
These I made for my little brother with scraps from the t-shirt quilt I made him several years ago. He recently moved into a new house so I thought he could use some help with the decorating...
2) A covered journal made from the tutorial over on Exuberant Color:
3) A mini-quilt a.k.a a sketch:
Anyway, overall I enjoyed the handmade Christmas and will have to think about doing more handmade gifts in the future.
As the year draws to a close I'm starting to think about what I want to accomplish creatively in the new year. I'm glad to be able to say that I actually made a few quilts in 2012, which is certainly a respectable thing for a quilter to be able to say! Ha ha. Hopefully I can keep this trend going next year. I just want to think critically (as usual) about what specifically I want to work on.
Enjoy the new year everyone!!
