Relatedly, I will ask this of folks who are either newly joined to STS or who haven't been in STS for a while - is it ok to be matched with someone who may not have been in STS at the same time as you, or does it not matter? I know one of the fun things about this swap is that you tend to know the person you are crafting for pretty well from the discussion thread, but with this type of smaller size swap, pairings of that nature may be difficult or impossible.

There's so much STS posting that stalking is easy!   So new pairings can be fun--what is that Girl Scouts song?  "Make new friends but keep the old..."  Smiley

*Important Note*

I just wanted to let everyone know that stoliedina is going through some personal issues and is having to take a break from things, including the Holiday Handmade Crusade, for the moment. 

That means that the prize drawings and stoliedina's other Crusade details will be on hold for now, but I hope that we can continue to meet here informally to prep for a great holiday!   

There's such great work being done here this month--lists made and projects started!  Let's keep on crafting and supporting one another so that when stoliedina  returns we can be proud of our fabulous holiday progress!

Hello!  I love to knit and sew, and Im new to embroidery.  I currently live in Wisconsin, so warm things are always appreciated!  I have a retired racing greyhound who loves small, soft blankets and natural toys.  

My aesthetic is very minimal--I try to surround myself with simple, beautiful, natural things.  William Morris said it best:  Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.  

I love natural colors and materials, especially organic and sustainable, and various shades of grey, blue, green, and brown (and lovely clear red).  I'm also loving orange lately--bright, clear oranges (more red than yellow)--and soft teals.  

I also have a huge list of wists and a pretty extensive etsy favorites.  Thank you!



shibori scarf

shawl or wrap - i love shawls or wraps of any kind, sewn or knit, dyed, embellished, whatever.  there are many, many examples on my wistsfeel free to experiment with my wists and likes in mind.

knitted fingerless gloves:  perhaps stripey mitts (in oranges and teals with a grey background?  or any other colors like the ones listed in my intro!) or leafy mitts, or any others that you think I might like!

mittens made of felted sweaters

two-color worsted weight handspun yarn

 hand-dyed sock yarn


altered art belt buckle in a western, botanical, or steampunk theme

crocheted o-ring necklace in spring green


 handmade soap - cinnamon, lavendar, eucalyptus, oatmeal and honey, etc.

ironing board cover in a fun print or plain solid fabric

quilted potholders in natural colors

stenciled placemats in natural colors like browns, blues, greens, orange/rust/red

modern laminated-fabric placemats

tea towels -- embroidered, embellished, stenciled, or vintage-style.  seriously, i love tea towels of any kind!

embroidered hankies for hubby:  themes could be agriculture (he would be soo happy with an old-fashioned hand plow, a mule or goat, or any kind of old-timey farming image), star wars, battlestar galactica, firefly, alien, etc.  

bags and organizers

zip pouches of any kind, large and small!  perhaps embroidered linen, or fun modern fabrics?

pouch for a natural first aid kit

your version of the in touch clutch

coin purse

your version of a knitting organizer

for the dog

natural, dog-friendly soaps

soft, small blankets sewn, knitted, patchwork, whatever, as long as its washable!  

other fun stuff

hand-carved rubber stamps like these or with lotta jansdotter-type designs or like the ones at mayamade

handspun or hand-dyed yarn

your version of a homemade pinhole camera

pre-loved is more than fine for these!  and a supplies-only package is great.

sock yarn of any kindespecially superwash wool or hand-dyed

books about sock knitting

darning egg

acrylic circle tool for quilting  

100% wool, worsted weight yarns in natural colorsmy stash has been sadly depleted lately!  id love any nice colors, but especially greens  

100% wool, DK weight yarns see above!

IKEA fabrics in modern or botanical designs--I live several hours from an Ikea but LOVE their fabrics!

any issues of stitch magazine

blocking board for knitting

embroidery patterns --  any from badbirds etsy shop, Japanese embroidery patterns or books, sublime stitching (especially artists series #3, vital organs), clover (kitchen, animals, garden), wee wonderfuls, anything vintage / modern  (but no cutesy animals, country, or kitsch, please)

vintage dress-making books, especially with pattern-making advice; in particular Im looking for Vogue's New Book for Better Sewing (1952)

vintage calendar kitchen towels

OR anything you like to craft that you think fits my taste based on my wishes, my wists, or my etsy favorites  

Thank you!

oneredbooot--it is a tradition with my friends that they drop by and get to pick out a handmade ornament out of a basket in my foyer...I also attach them to bottles of wine or plates of cookies, so I need lots and lots!! Cheesy
