More handmade presents....

I refused to buy presents this year. I feel that we all have stuff we need and if we don't we buy it for ourselves anyway because it's needed or because we really want it. And who knows better what we need than we do.
With little ones it's different, I understand, but also only from certain age. Babies don't care if it's made or bought.
So I made almost all my presents this year. I said almost because there are certain people (two in my case )around us that just would benefit more out of something else.
My presents for family in Slovakia are all packed and will be revealed later (from Slovakia).
There were few more that I was missing for people here in U.S..
These are throw pillows that will go to a home where handmade is loved. There is going to be quilt coming later, but that would really have to wait until after my trip.





The last one still in works. Let's hope I'll make it. Not today though, spending all day in school - finals.



Also, dont't forget to Freda's Hive today! Don't know what I am talking about? Check this out!!!

Edit:
Another great 100th post giveaway is going on here!

I totally agree about gifts, and I am doing very little this year.
