  26. My favorite handmade gift: Once my best friend’s mother asked me to finish quilting a quilt she had pieced and started but didn’t finish. It took me a very long time. I delivered it to her (she didn’t live near). We had a wonderful meeting that day. She died one week later. A few months later my friend gave me that quilt, and I treasure it. Okay, I have two, because another very elderly lady crocheted me a blanket when I was unable to have children after 15 years of trying, and told me this was for my future children. She died not long after, and a few years later, I had children.

In the center of the quilt my grandma had embroidered one of the little girls from the curtain fabric, and the paintings were also girls from the curtains! ๐Ÿ™‚

Probably all the things both my grandmothers made, my paternal one made us the most beautiful dresses for hollidays among other things, and my maternal one made us all kinds of things,from doll beds out of oatmeal canisters (complete with mattresses, pillows, and blankets), home made paper dolls, and now as an adult coasters or those crochet topped dishtowels.

Definitely the best handmade present ever!!

  38. My boys would cry to know that I had that kind of dough for JoAnn’s and they are 17 and 15! LOL! Oh, the shopping I could do! And no I won’t be doing any of it on-line generally I have to be in the fabric store so I can touch EVERYTHING, yes, I am a little tactile! ๐Ÿ™‚

  39. I’ve actually never received something hand-made! But I have been learning to sew so I can hand-make items for my daughter!

  40. Recently I’ve been trying to get my craft space together, this would really help my efforts! I really love sewing especially but don’t really have the funds to get the supplies I need or want.

  41. I have just started sewing and would LOVE to make use of some of this cool stuff! My prompt was “What is your favorite handmade gift you ever received?”

    My mom died when I was 11 years old. Before she died she had started knitting a blanket which she was never able to finish. MY aunt found the unfinished blanket in her things and decided that it would not remain unfinished. Now, 17 years later, I am pregnant with my first child. My aunt presented the finished blanket to me and this sweet baby girl. My mom wasn’t the best at knitting, and as it turns out was working the pattern all wrong. So, my aunt finished the pattern as it read so I can tell the pieces that my Mother’s Hands worked and the pieces that my Aunt finished.

    I will always cherish that blanket and hope to learn how to knit, so one day I can teach my daughter and tell her the story of how she came to have that beautiful blanket.

  42. I don’t think I have ever received a homemade Christmas present but my son and I made presents for his grandparents last year and they were so fun and awesome!

  43. My grandmother made me a Raggedy Ann doll when I was 10 years old. She did not read the pattern beforehand.. once she started cutting the fabric she realized it was going to be a LARGE Raggedy Ann. She was 3 feet tall which was not even a full foot shorter than I was!! Grandma also included a wardrobe as well, a total of three dresses, two pinafores, two pairs of bloomers, and two pairs of stockings! At 48, I still have her and all of her outfits!

  44. I received a beautiful quilt from my mother. She spent many hours piecing and quilting it; it is such a treasure!
