Thank you so very, VERY much, Madame Samm for letting me share and also for helping out with the photo dilemma that I had! You are a doll!
Great suggestions, ideas, and photo. Love those muffin potholders. We forget that our creativity and at-hand supplies provide us with "perfect" gifts. And if we can't think of it, someone else has on the internet that is willing to share. Blessings and Happy Holidays,Sharon
Good Morning Jan, ( HI Sharon) you are both up before me...lol...Your quilt with the yellow sashing..I LOVE THAT ONE. Love to see a full shot of that when done. I love butter cream and to infuse it like you did, well that speaks volumes. I sew agree with you, I am learning that scrap quilts and stash busting as you share make amazing one of a kind gifts...Who would not love that kind of creativity. It is ladies like yourself who really provide us with the most amazing posts, suggestions and downright smiles...Here is mine all served up this morning...Thanks Jan...you are a delightful guest...and ps..love the muffin potholders too...
great post, love your ideas on ridding some of my stash. your quilts are wonderful. agree love the sashing you used. Tamy
Love the post Jan! You have given me some great ideas on stash busting for Christmas. At this point and time it will be much easier for me to use my stash than find time to shop. Love your quilts... especially the towels and muffin top hot pads.
Jan, that was a great post. Good gifting ideas! I immediately started to think which of my quilty buddies would want some of my stash fabrics. Then I started to cry :( about the thought of giving away my favorites. I guess they are all my favs. But I am busting stash to make gifts this year and it is fulfilling! And your boys are very cute!
Good post Jan - a great reminder that homemade gifts are really the most treasured (even if it's in our own hearts!) I have a huge bin of wool that I've gotten from garments at the thrift shop. I love it when I can pull from there to make a beautiful candle mat or table runner. blessings, marlene
By the way - where did you find the pattern for the cupcake potholder? blessings, marlene
I want to make those muffin pot holders too!! Those are adorable :-)My "make for Christmas" list is a bit lengthy this year (for me). And yet, I continue to add items to the list :-)But it's nice to be able to give a gift made with someone specific in mind.~ Meagan
Great article. Loved it all and hope to try a few of them. Love the towels.cathy
My idea list continues to grow after reading all the great ideas crafty folks like you keep posting!! I could never get bored with all these terrific ideas to make. I retired in 08 and so many warned me I would get bored! Ha!! I can't understand how I ever worked and got anything done with all the wonderful projects I now have time to pursue. Thanks for a great post. BTW, hope Santa brings you a new OR repaired sewing machine!GMAMA Jane
So many wonderful ideas for gifts for the holidays. Thanks so much for sharing them. I love the quilts that you have shared. I hope you can get your sewing machine repaired soon. Hugs Ariane
Jan,I love those muffin pot holders. Please tell me where to find the pattern.
I too would like to know where the muffin pot holder pattern can be found. Those are adorable!
AHEM (cough cough) Mdm. Samm where is the post? Is it just me?? I can see the comments but not the post. guess I'll try later
I wish that I could tell you all where the muffin potholders came from, but that is one of the photos that Madame Samm added to help me have enough for the post. I am so sorry that I cannot help ya'll!Jan
You think they are just words...they are sew much more than that...your wee messages tell me, you are kind, smart and important...
