It’s like the gift giving is happening all over again on Flickr. We love the gift images popping up in the Handmade Holidays pool and the Sew, Mama, Sew! general photo pool. The care and time you’ve spent shows; it’s clearly evident in the great details on today’s hand stitched items in photos from the pools.

Don’t forget to comment anywhere on the blog for your chance to win one of two $25 gift certificates to Sew,Mama,Sew! The drawing is later today!

Christmas Tree Crazy Quilt Detail
By Karen, Clever Karen

Karen recently started her blog, Clever Karen, and also completed her Christmas Tree Crazy Quilt. It took several years to complete and we can see why, with all of the intricate, hand stitched details. For a look at the whole quilt and more visit Karen’s Flickr site.

Hand Quilted Pillows
By Kayleen, Flour Clothing

Kayleen stitched these throw pillows as gifts for loved ones. Visit Kayleen’s blog, Flour Clothing, to see the quilt she made as a Christmas gift with her “blood, sweat and tears” (it’s lovely!) and the clothing she designs for children.

Handcrafters’ Holidays Meme
Julie from Willow Tree Creek Studios made lots of handcrafted gifts for the holidays like this penguin blanket (more pictures to come now that people have received their gifts!). Julie has fond memories of Christmas morning and writes, “As a kid my sister and I would wait on the stair Christmas morning while mom and dad ‘made sure Santa had taken care of everything.’ We would wait in anticipation until we heard dad call ‘Okay, girls!’ and we would RUN down the stairs. We did this every year even into our college years! My sister has a little boy now so maybe the tradition can pass on to him!” You might be able to turn Julie’s mother’s Christmas Punch into a New Year’s tradition, so check out the recipe on her blog and click through to her shop too.

Heather from Mini Memoirs of Mine shares her holiday traditions and gift giving ideas. She writes, “My kids really get into making things for other people this time of year. They take careful consideration about each persons preferences and try to make something that they would enjoy.” The family had Chinese food for Christmas dinner and had the “Best Day Ever” for Christmas, complete with sledding! Visit Heather’s blog to enjoy more.
