Just in case I forget, here is a photo of the handmade project, though it is far from complete. I laid it out in dark-light-dark order, using up 5" scraps of holiday fabrics. It is a 22" square table topper. My partner says her favorite color is red, and I have learned that red is best as an accent, even during the winter holidays. This size/shape is a favorite of mine to make this year, though the Lil Twister makes up really great looking rectangular shapes as well.
I did two things to keep myself on track with this swap: First was to make a list of what I was planning to include even though it might change; Second was to put $30 in an envelope and place receipts inside the envelope. I've found a box that might work to ship and have started wrapping. Yes, that means no photos for the few that are already tapped with ribbons over their papers. I will do my best to photograph the remaining days.
