Handmade gifts

Some of the gifts I made have arrived at their destination, so I can show them now.

I had a swap with my quilt group and we could only use what we had in the house, luckily, I have plenty of crafting supplies.
Unfortunately my partner lives in holland, so I had to limit what I made for her and couldn't spoil her, as I would have liked to do;) I made her a penny mat, using a design from Primitive Blessings as a start, the angels. Then I added the rest to make a fun and unique mat, just for her.

I also used the angel to make a pair of punched ornaments. I am not great at doing the lettering.
I just love using Tiffany's designs, they are so fun to do and wonderful ideas for gift giving.

The third item I made was a pair of mittens, that she can hang on the hook, door, or wherever, she would like. I used one of Tiffany's snowmen and modified it a bit. This was before I cleaned it up. Taking pictures helps me to see what I might have missed with loose strands or areas that need to be teased back in. I also made her a nativity set and some other little goodies. I love making things for fellow crafters and sharing during the holiday season.

Such lovely things! Your swap partner is one lucky lady. I use my camera pictures to show me the little fix-it needs in my designs too! I don't know why it works so well, but pictures always show me things that I can't see with just my eyes. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one ... makes me seem just a little less crazy!
