Handmade Gift Exchange, Summer 2011

I recently participated in a Handmade Gift Exchange in the month of June. I read about it from the blog:  http://www.craftaholicsanonymous.net/

Linda has been hosting this event for a number of years now. This was the first that I have heard of it and thought it would be fun.  When you sign up and participate, she pairs you up with a gift partner. You then make a gift and have it sent by the deadline. Your partner does the same. You can email your partner and maybe become friends if your lucky. Also, Linda hosts this event twice a year. The next one is in November so I'm sure that one will have plenty of Christmas items exchanged.

I am very happy to have received my gift in the mail today. Here is what my partner sent to me:



Below is the gift that I sent to my partner:



I hope that she liked it.

I also made a set of pillows for a friend's birthday but I forgot to take a picture of them. They are the same pattern just different material. The pattern came from another blog:

I just love the patterns from this blog. Such an inspiration. I will be participating again just not in November because of Christmas. It was fun and I did something I never did before. Which is a good thing.

Love love love the pillows you made - I'm a follower of Cluck Cluck Sew, too - she's so talented, and I see now that you are too! Thanks for sharing the beauty.
