Before it turns 2010 (and we're much looking forward to a year like no other) here are some bits and pieces of our holidays. I sewed and sewed. And sewed. And then never took photos of the gifts I made. NOT very blog-friendly to forget the photos. If this blog is anything it's a photo journal so my heart sank when I realized. Ah well.
I may ask the gift receivers to take photos so I can share them here. In the meantime, here are the other bits.
For my mom, in colors a little more tradish.
My mother-in-law (a very crafty lady) made this ornament, along with a several others, when she and my father-in-law were first married. We hang them every year. They make my heart melt a little, knowing so much work went into them so long ago.
Also, we got to be around kids on Christmas Eve. Wow. It's a whole different holiday with little ones around. They made beautiful and hilarious gingerbread houses. I've never seen a 4 year old and 2 year old concentrate like that.
I spent the last 24 hours starting a stroller quilt for my little man. It features tiny animals and apples - all from some of my favorite Japanese fabric prints. It's delicious - pics soon.
