    Default Can I borrow your thinking caps?

    I went to my hexi group last night and we realized our next meeting will be our Christmas gathering. Now I have to think of an exchange gift. Either something home made or with a $$ value of 15$. This is my 7th year with the group and we are all pretty much the same members so, coming up with an original idea is getting hard. Any suggestions?
    Thanks for all suggestions/inspirations.

    How about a hexi notion that they may not have tried yet? Here are some cool ones I am longing to try

    Have you seen those flip & sew hexi coasters? Maybe gift a set with a pretty tea or coffee cup or make a set of EPP coasters on wool?

    I bought some socks with scissors printed on them for a couple of quilty friends for Christmas, they were in your price range.
    I always love to get fabric, too. Some coordinating fat quarters perhaps.

    I made mug rugs one year for all the friends and family. This year they are getting those small tea towels with my quilting on the top part that I have seen crochet.

    I hope our suggestions help.

    Stash 'n Store from FQS, mini $6.48, Lg is $10.48. They come in about 5 different colors and SO handy to hold little tools, emb scissors, etc. Something that will really get used without breaking the bank.

    I went to buy something the other day, and saw the cutest socks on a display near the front of the store. This was at Ace Hardware! Couldn't believe they sell socks there.
