I have joined a December holiday swap in the From Trash to Treasure Ravelry group. I don't know who has me, and the person I have may or may not know that I have her. For the last 4 days I have been working on a present for my swap partner. I finished it last night, and it turned out really wonderful. So much so that I want to make one for myself. Sorry, but due to the secrecy of the project, I can't post a picture of it until December after she opens it. However I did want to acknowledge that I have been hard at work on something. I have a few more ideas for other things that I want to make for her as well.
I have got Christmas and a few birthdays on my mind right now. To get all of my handmade items finished on time, I am starting right now. The problem is that a few of the people who the presents are for check my blog on a regular basis. So there will be a few times when I can't post any pictures or information on what I am working on. I'll be busy blogging about everything after Christmas though.
I'll give you one clue about this latest project - it is made from recycled materials and I did not spend a penny on it. But thats the funny part about it, because the swap is all about making things out of recycled items for one another. Thus I am not giving any real information away to my swap partner.
