File It Away for Next Year
Due to a pre-Christmas cold, I did not get a chance to show you the gifts I made, in time for it to do you any good if you were looking for ideas. But here they are and maybe you can use the ideas next year.
My grandson has a lot of relatives, and a lot of toys, so his parents stress to us not to spoil him with more. So I made a little activity book out of cute quilt fabrics and some sturdy upholstery fabric samples, with some super-sized snaps and hooks and eyes, a zipper, some pockets, etc.
And for my daughters, I took photos of the letters in all kinds of signs, and then arranged the letters to spell out the names of their houses. I printed them on cloth, and sewed them into banners.
I didn’t get any baking or decorating done this year, but I been wanting to make these projects for a long time, so I am glad I got them done!
