In turn I sent Polka Dot Christmas trees. I actually made 2 of them. My sister "needed" one too.
I work with JC who collects post cards of all kinds. I saw this card on Sheila's blog post and she gave me information on where she got the idea. I thought it would be a great card for JC.
This is the top I made for my friend at work who happens to be my boss. Since I will be retiring in late January this will be our last gift exchange and I thought this would be wonderful. She is the person who got me into knitting and this pattern is called Fair Isle. It's by Lee at http://www.freshlypieced.com/2014/10/fair-isle-sew-along Perfect. Probably just a little more than I should have bitten off before reading the instructions.
The deer is a 13 inch block and the deer is made up of 1 inch finished squares. The picture below shows my first attempt. Poor deer had a broken neck.
As you can see she's all better now. I gave the top to PC earlier this week, she loved it. We cried. It will go to the long arm quilter right after Christmas. I invested way to much time and energy in it to try and quilt it myself. It measures in at 72 x 75.
The towels were a last minute gift addition to go with gift cards. I made 2 sets.
And last but nowhere near least are these Hash Tag blocks. Made for the Heros from Sydney Australia. This link takes you to a full explanation
of where they are going and the how you too can participate.
Just in case I don't make it back here in the next week, I am sending out my best wishes to you one and all for a very Merry Christmas.
