I just wondered what everyone else is making........I would like to trade my work for yours. What do you have?

I have quilled Christmas ornaments, and quilled framed pictures. Check out my website at www.quillingbysandrawhite.com

Hope I can trade for all my gifts this year.

Sandy, your Christmas cross is gorgeous.

I don't know what you're looking for, but I crochet and I've been making a lot of these for the holidays

Hi Chris, I love the crocheted towel. What is its value? Can we trade for the Christmas Cross? This is great. I tried to get a picture of the ornament here, but can't figure it out.

To be perfectly honest, I have no idea what the price value would be on such a thing.  I make them for friends and
family.  I've never sold them.   If you think it's a fair trade for you, I'd be happy to trade a pair of the dish towels for
the ornament.

Thanks for the great picture. How did you do it?

I would love a pair of the towels. I like the blue and green grapes, but as long as it goes in my green kitchen it would be wonderful. I will pm with my address. thanks, Sandy

I just copied and pasted your picture.

The picture I posted isn't one I made.  It's from the site I got the pattern from, but I'll be sure to make you a green set.

thanks.  I wonder if anyone else has craftwork to trade?? I have quite a few snowflakes all ready to mail. check my website at www.quillingbysandrawhite.com and look at the christmas ornament page.

Thanks Chris for the photo of my snowflake below.

thank you Chris. Another gift done. And a very beautiful gift for my mom. She will absolutely love the crocheted top towels. I remember them on our stove as a child.

Anyone else want to trade......getting late to ship but maybe trade for yourself??

Happy Holidays to Everyone.

Sandy

Thank you, Sandy!!!    The ornament looks great on my tree.  I had a brief thought of giving it to Mom as a Christmas
present, but greed won out.  LOL!!!   I've get 3 or 4 ornaments from PBS buddies.  I think it makes a nice holiday
tradition.

I'm willing to trade if anyone else want to as well.   If there's something else you want crocheted, I could probably
figure it out.  Maybe.  Probably.  :)

Sandy, I would love a quilled snowflake.  I will trade you a knitted hat, for a man, woman or child.  Let me know what size/color you would like.

Yes, sounds wonderful. How about a red hat, soft yarn, no wool. For me, woman's size mediumish....does that work? It doesn't need to be here for Christmas, we have much winter to go. I will send you the ornament now. email me your address......................... Sandy

I love your work........I would love to trade a snowflake ornament or maybe a little 3x4 picture of a bird or duck. Do you have any thoughts as to what you might like? I can't decide. Do you have any small picture frames available....

Lori, I'd love to trade with you.  If you don't want the dish towels, is there something else that you would like
crocheted?   I can't do everything, but I can give it a shot.

Sandy - thank you. I think an all-white snowflake would be very pretty. the mosaics take too much time so I don't sell/trade those. the large donut on my site has a hole-size of .75" and an overall diameter of about 1.5". would rather not trade the one shown but can make you one in whatever colors you like. right now I have a gold one with gold flecks and a pink and orange ring available.

Chris - thank you too! let's do it. I love the idea of the towel with the hanger, but that style doesn't match my house. can you do something in a less "country" or homey look? my kitchen is really modern-looking with browns/golds and stainless steel. I don't know the difference between crocheting and knitting... what can you crochet? what shape and color pendant would you be interested in?

Lori -- The gold with gold flecks sounds nice, but if you are willing to make something red.........my favorite color...........I would love that. It can be after Christmas. email me your address and I will mail out the snowflake tomorrow.
