Photo #364/365: Tea Towels and Potholders
I have finally finished making and wrapping Christmas gifts. This year I made note cards using my 365 photos, crocheted potholders, embellished tea towels, crocheted baby hats, and sewed colorful holiday and owl pillow cases. For most of these projects, I used materials that I already had upstairs in my craft room. I started doing it because I didn't have much money to spend on Christmas gifts, but the true gift was that it reawakened my love of sewing and yarn crafts. Along the way, I learned about on-line resources and a social network site called Ravelry.com, where you can exchange patterns and join groups for all kinds of reasons. I think I got the biggest gift of all.
