In the meantime, I was very busy getting ready for Christmas and in the rush of the make and take of gifts I forgot to take photos of most of my “makes”.
Here is what I did remember to photograph…
Scrappy pillows for my sister and her hubby
Matching pillows (matches last year’s quilt) for my brother and sister-in-law
A multitude of quilts for my other sister, niece and nephews.
a knitted scarf for a little dude (my sister-in-law’s grandson)
Pillow cases for two boys that live across the street
Many, many placemats, napkins and trivets that made their way to all the other special people in my life.
I also forgot to photograph this year’s teacher gifts…
I made flax-heat packs and lavender infused epsom salts to make up relaxation care packages. They went over very well and I heard from many of the teachers that they used them over the holiday break.
Now… to some of the exciting things for 2015!
I’ve decided to join in on the #sewmystash2015 movement over on Instagram and will report here as I am able. Basically, the idea is to use up the fabric in your stash as best you can over the year (and to purchase as little as possible). I think I can do it, I’ve definitely got enough in my stash to make all the quilts slated for the year.
But… here’s the thing. I’m planning on starting a new chapter in my life. This chapter will include the purchasing of many, many more fabrics! For now, I’ll have to leave it at that. I’d like you to join me in my new adventures. I’ll let you know more in a while…
Till next time….
