A Little Christmas

 This year is different in so many ways! And yet we will still be giving gifts. Whether by mail or for those that we can thankfully celebrate Christmas with, in person.

We as quilters are creative people, making gifts for our loved ones is something we can and do enjoy from the planning right through to the finish. I haven't done a lot of sewing this year or made many gifts, my sewjo has been sadly lacking.

When we give handmade gifts we give something personal and individual to the person receiving the gift. We are also giving a piece of ourselves every time we make and give a gift. Even if we make two of the same items, each one is unique and made with love. The love we have for each individual person is also unique to that person, and this is what gives each piece special meaning.

A homemade gift for my daughter

I think we give gifts; as a way to celebrate life, love, and friendships. 

I wish each and everyone a happy holiday season this very unusual Christmas season!

Did you make any homemade gifts this year for someone near and dear or perhaps a friend?

Cute towels - they are so handy to have! I've made the little mug cosies for my daughter, and I'm working on a quilt for my son for Christmas. I also made a couple little mini quilts for my mother-in-law.

I love these. I always have one hanging on my fridge door. Merry Christmas.
