Giveaway Day

Circle Scarves

Today is SewMamaSew Giveaway Day! It's always a lot of fun participating and finding new blogs. If you are a new visitor, I love all kinds of textile crafts and I recently opened up my own shop where I sell quilts, bags, handspun yarn, and other goodies. I also design knit and crochet patterns. Last week, I stitched up a bunch of circle scarves in voile and velveteen. There are 2 different sizes and they make great holiday gifts.

  4. Is it bad to say my favorite handmade gift to receive is food? Because I love all the sweet and salty delicacies of Christmas! (But I only like receiving food gifts if I know you and your kitchen; food gifts from acquaintances kind of freak me out.) :)

    This scarf is gorgeous! It makes me wish it weren't 80+ degrees in Texas right now!!!!!

My second choice is usually books or more supplies to make things.
