Now that everyone has received their gifts, I can show you what I’ve been up to.
I made this for Sandra and she loved it.
It’s easy to make – it’s all in the yarn!
Then I made these for her:
She loves fingertip towels in her washrooms and since they have 4 bathrooms in their house, she can never have too many. I’m glad she’s the one cleaning them and not me!
I got a lovely surprise just before Christmas when these arrived from my friend Joan in Alberta.
Aren’t they adorable! Almost makes me want to go and cook something so I can use them – almost, but not quite!
The black strip on the left is all divided for credit cards and the thinner black strip on the right is a zippered compartment. I could never make anything this fiddly and have it turn out so well – thank you Joan – you how how much I appreciate it!
Sandra & Darren surprised me yesterday with this wonderful shadowbox gift. The detail is incredible and I am really inspired now to get my sewing room redecorated so I can hang it on the wall.
Ben had a ball yesterday opening all the gifts wrapped in tissue paper. He isn’t really interested in what’s inside, he just loves to rip off tissue paper. I got a few pictures, but they didn’t turn out very well.
The joke of the day was Leo and I gave each other the same present - an iPad. Since I had his engraved, mine is going back. Thank heavens he didn't buy his from Apple and get it engraved too. I think we can live without 2 iPads!
I’ve started to empty out my sewing room today. I want to replace the flooring, paint the walls and have some storage shelves built in the cupboard. I have a feeling that by the time I move everything out of there and into our bedroom, we won’t be able to move. Hopefully this will motivate us to get it done quickly.
Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and I wish good health and happiness for you in 2011.
