What a busy time of year it is. Why is it that you see all these great ideas for hand made Christmas gifts about 2 weeks before the big day? I read somewhere recently – why doesn’t anyone tell me Christmas is coming – and that’s kind of how I feel right now!
‘Tis the season for parties, dinners, Open Houses, pot lucks and brunches but I’m ready to get back to normal. I’m also ready to stop eating so much!
I did get my second sock finished, but you’ll have to take my word for it, as I don’t have a picture and I’m too lazy to go and take one. I’ve got another pair almost done too. These things are very addictive so if you haven’t tried them yet – don’t!
I just quilted it with some silver metallic thread which I’m not sure you can see in the pictures.
I also made these towels for my two little adopted grandsons. I’m not sure what I was thinking when I did these – there were over 40,000 stitches on each one – for a hand towel. At least I know I’m crazy!
Check out the look on Alexander’s face – it was worth every one of those stitches!
While I’ve been running around like a chicken with my head cut off, Ben & Molly have been chilling. They have each claimed a chair – but I think they have it backwards. The chair without the arms is supposed to be the ladies chair – it is my understanding they were made that way to accommodate a lady’s knitting needles.
We were at my girlfriend’s today for brunch and my adopted granddaughters gave Ben his Christmas present – doesn’t he look thrilled!
