One of the ladies over on the HGTV quilting and sewing board posted directions for a little gift basket. Way cute. One of the other ladies then posted a picture showing about 20-something of them she made to give as little gifts. Of course that triggered a "hmmmm" response!
I made my initial basket according to directions, but it was a bit big to suit me. So then I took the other lady's suggestion about making them smaller, and used 6.5" squares instead of 10.5" squares. I'm really pleased with the results. I think my 3 little neighbor girls might be the recipients of these with some Hershey kisses as the treat inside.
Oh! I think I mentioned that I made some items for the Twelve Days of Christmas swap. Several of us each made 12 things and sent them to a coordinator to swap out and return. I got my package the other day, and today I got to open the first one! Actually, Elise helped me open it. :) I can't post pictures of the opened packages until everyone has opened, so that will be about Christmas Eve. In the meantime, here's what I have tempting me.
Also over on the HGTV board, they recently had a PJ party class on journal covers. I really like her method of making them. I made this one and I actually got it a tad small, but I'll continue to use it until I get another one made now that I know what I'm doing. We did a journal cover 2 or 3 years ago, but this was a much simpler method.
