I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend holiday with your family and friends! After the festivities I spent my days trying to attempt my first vinyl letter tile. I am quite fond of it and I really have seen so many wonderful ideas with tile and vinyl I am excited to keep on using up my vinyl until it is all gone!

As the last project of the year for the dishcloth swap. I decided to make this cotton Christmas Wreath dishcloth to include as a set with a holiday themed hotpad. This yearly swap has really been a lot of fun to do. I have many ideas for the holidays and themes of each months swap and it has been very rewarding.

Had some yarn left from yesterdays project, it wasn't enough to do anything with or so I thought. I made a little pouch thinking it would make a cute little purse for something adding a loop to close with a button. Once finished I started looking for something to put it on. It fit perfectly on my paper clip container. Lol!

I wasn't thrilled with how my Autumn Leaf dish cloth turned out for my November Dish cloth swap partner, so I made another to add with it. I chose this free pattern for an Acorn dishcloth and it turned out so cute! I really need to start making some of these for myself! ;)

Oh my goodness the year has flown by so fast! Where did it all go! From Autumn dish cloths to making holiday cards I am having so much fun!

This is a free pattern I found on Ravelry, you can make one too! Find the pattern here http://www.mooglyblog.com/happy-autumn-leaves/

All that fun card making over the last month, using up my scraps of patterned papers and what nots sure paid off! I had a set of assorted holiday cards to send to the other participants in the Anysoldier Card Swap group on Facebook! I am looking forward to seeing all the cards I get back in return to include in my holiday care package to the soldiers currently serving. It sure makes you feel good to think maybe you just might brighten up a soldiers day after all they go through for this country!
