Quilty Gifts!

Over the past few days there has been allot of celebrating.
I am not sure about you, but most years I am in a gift giving funk lacking creativity.

So to share ideas--here is what I have made or was given.

These where for the 3 wonderful board members that sit with me at our meetings!
The cup reads "CAMACO Quilters Inspire!

And even though they are travel mugs,
a mug rug is needed for when they are at the machine.

These are jeweled Stilettos given to a group that I meet with monthly.
These are made with turkey lancers! 

This was a Make & Take project I did at our retreat which worked out well since our project consisted of allot of sewing and these are great guiding tools!

I made a few finger pin cushions.
Love mine!

Eye Masks

One side pretty fabric and other side minky!

I did use batting in mine.

Our guild had a potholder exchange and I love the one I received from Kathy.
I will use it year around.
Love the ruffle!

A insulated hot pad. 
However I will turn it over so I don't dirty the Tomten's (Swedish for Santa).
This comes from my wonderful mom.

I received a great travel case for scissors and a rotary cutter.
Doreen was so creative by cutting out paper scissors--she thought I needed a prop!

Denise made this adorable bobbin tree ornament with a bell!

Elena made the cutest mini scissor holder.
The ribbons work through the handles and you secure it around the button.

Donna made a brown sugar body rub and Pam made a peppermint hand-exfoliate.
So that we can pamper ourselves!

Peg made a striking table mat.
Love the colors!

 We were to guess this one from Debbie.
We knew the pink pen was a seam ripper.
However the fabric covered medicine case has a magnet at the bottom, this is for the needles
 you will throw away and they are secure till you do so.

 Sandee is keeping my table look'n good with a set of coasters.

 Gail made a potholder that is perfect in my kitchens!

Joan made this adorable pincushion that is a flower on a 
golf tee that sits in a spool of thread!

Thank You everyone for the thoughtful gifts!
And I hope this helped for Christmas's to come or you can hurry and make for this year!
