This year's, or rather, last year's handmade Christmas presents


Well... Christmas is over and a new year has begun... I guess I'm safe to put up pictures of some of the things I made for Christmas presents last year (it feels so funny to say last year about this Christmas...)
I made my mum and dad a quilted Christmas tree skirt. Well, that was what it was intended for... but I think my mum wanted to use it as a table cloth as well.... I guess it has many uses, so I'm happy for her to do as she wishes with it.
It was hard to catch the colours correctly, but you get an idea.
For my hubby's family (sister, brother, nieces, nephews, all with family) I made egg warmer hens. Some of them has been pictured before, so I'm not going to show them again.
For his brother and his sister I also added a bread basket with a quilted cloth that matched the egg warmer hens (I didn't make the basket though...or the egg cups...)
The blue and striped pin wheel basket cloth was for Per's sister and her hubby, and the red and blue flying geese cloth, for hubby's brother and his wife.
Here are the hens that went with the flying geese....!;)
I gave some other handmade things as well, but most of it has been picrued on my blog before, so I'll just leave it here...

The colors in your Christmas tree skirt are wonderful and I can understand why your mother would want to use it as a tablecloth - it's beautiful. blessings, marlene

wonderful! I so admire your quilting work. I tried once... once.... and it kind of worked out. Wasn't sure what I was doing.... can you do a mini quilting tutorial on your blog please? THanks

Er ikke jeg heldig som har fått det fine teppe. De andre tingene var også kjempefine.
I dag klipper jeg filler.Har fått bestilling på 3 matter men det er vanskelig å finne de rette fargene blandt fillene mine. Det går jo med 8/10 dynetrekk og det vet jeg ikke om jeg har.Vi får se,det blir vel en løsning på det.
Ha en fin kveld.MOM

What adorable gifts! Love those chickens in the egg cups.

The tree skirt is wonderful (even if it gets used as a tablecloth). AND.....those chickens to cover the eggs are adorable. I never saw anything like them before! Glad I found your blog (after you entered my giveaway).

Barb said...

Flotte hjemmelagede gaver:-D
Likte spesielt de hønene! Nydelige, nesten synd man aldri spiser egg;-P

Ang garn og spinne jevnt så er det vanskelig ja, og jeg må nok innrømme at jeg ikke kan kunsten jeg heller;-)
