Wow, loads of awesomeness in here! Not just the craftables, but the awesome caring hearts as well. Sending prayers for those who are injured, unwell, or overwhelmed. Congratulations for all the good things that have been happening! (Too many to list individually and I'd hate to inadvertently leave someone out, so I hope that ^ blanket covers everyone.)
My "partner" sent some goodies for the 12 Days of Christmas Swap. Without further ado, here they are!
I tend to make quite the mess when in the kitchen, so aprons get lots of use. These are lined with a different fabric from their fronts, and are therefore reversible. (One day I hope to be brave enough to make a fancy apron, like the gorgeous one I received in a previous swap!) Some will be given as gifts.
For my hair, these wire headbands:
My (partner's) own design - a throw with pockets to hold that pesky remote, glasses, a small book, etc. When folded in half, it makes a toasty wheelchair blanket. This will be given to a nursing home resident. Also, a stocking made in a nontraditional paisley print, with a black cuff made from a window topper curtain.
Stockings depicting the wise men bearing 3 gifts (my personal favorite holiday symbol):
This tree skirt is from prequilted panels and has adorable angel bears. It is lined with a subtle cottage print, making it reversible.
Check out this bagpipe pin cushion! It was discovered at a thrift store and my partner snatched it up for me. I'm not sure what the original intended use was for this. I plan to use it for pins. Somewhere in the cobwebs of my memory, it looks vaguely familiar... as if someone from here may have posted the same item a long time ago. Does anyone remember this?
Thanks for looking. Happy crafting/swapping to everyone!
