It's been a few years since I made potholders. Maybe pack with an interesting spice (za'tar?? ) and a recipe.
The gang got holiday napkins last year, which were appreciated.

I have been asked to make two Spiderman quilts for a friends 3 and 5 yr. old grandsons. In the creative process...
Not really on my list of to do. But I will keep them simple a Warm Wishes pattern and My Favorite Donation quilt pattern which is a strippy. I have a Christmas quilt that still needs its binding(from last year) and the pile of fabrics just waiting on the cutting(dining) table. I am getting ready for the big Highway #141 Garage sale. Hope I make lots of fabric money!!

love the idea of adding a spice to the pot holder Dotty.
I always like giving something extra with the gift. Great idea, might steal your idea for myself.

Someone gave me a tin of flavored / herbed tea --- it has tea, lemon verbena leaves, spearmint leaves, lemongrass in it....not my kind of tea for drinking (i'm just a plain English/Irish Breakfast tea type) --- so that was one of my thoughts - to add it in between the layers of quilted hot pads.

Most of us have a lot of Christmas decorations. I'd love a wall hanging with a snowman that says Happy New Year.
Or any wintery thing to put out when the tree is gone.

So far I only have some potholders done. Been too busy making quilts to think much about Christmas yet but it is coming fast. I do this every year though. Think I have lots of time then I really have to push to get it all done. I am thinking about making pillowcases too for different ones on my list. Those are always nice. I love to read everyone's ideas or what they are making. Keep them coming & have fun!

I like your thinking.

Aprons!! for everyone. Put something cute in the pocket, a recipe, a cookie cutter. One with a hanging buttoned on hand towel is great for sloppy cooks like me!
