Oh this is so much fun!

This year is my year to give things to others ... handmade things. I am having so much fun being able to surprise people who up to now have had no idea that I was doing anything for them.

This is a WIP roll. It is a mini quilt that is used to roll up your stitching either while you are working on things or for finished pieces waiting for their final finishes. I had this laying in half done for Barbara for ages. My RAK year seemed the perfect time to dig it out and get it finished to send to her. She shares my love for autumn so I knew what I wanted to do with it from the start.


I just got an email from Maine saying it arrived so I can now share it with you. I need to get my March RAKs out now. Wonder where those will show up??? *wink*

  2. It IS fun to surprise people! Your stitching keeper (for lack of another name) is such a great gift and I'm sure will be used with warm thoughts of you.

  13. Wonderful gift Heidi! I don't know any stitcher or quilter who doesn't have some WIPs that could be stored in there. :) Happy to see it going to Barb too whose blog I have been reading for many years. Nice job!
