Won't my family know what I'm making?
Short answer: No. With the exception of my mother in law, Marion, no one else reads my blog. I could offer to give each of them $100 if they read this today and know without a doubt that my money is safe. It's OK. They're just not big blog readers.
The good news is that I can show you what I've started making for Christmas gifts this year.
I was cleaning out my hope chest (which my mom used to call my hopeless chest when I was single), and I came upon a good bit of fabric that I've bought sometime over the past several years. Most of it I remember from being pregnant with John. I had this grand idea of making blankets while I was on bed rest in the hospital. Turns out, I used the time to watch daytime television, read magazines and drink sweet tea the nurses brought in to me. Way to use my time wisely, right?
Anyway, here's a few of the ideas I have for Christmas this year. And yes, most of them are from Pinterest.
|No sew fleece blanket edging from Nebraska Views|
with matching hand warmers from helping little hands
A couple of money trees from then she made.
A rag quilt for my mom - with the help of my friend Tracy E.
Ten dates for $20 from The Dating Divas
For Ronnie: The game of love, also from The Dating Divas
And several scarves from Red Heart Yarn.
I'm also hoping to have time to make some goodies out of the beeswax I have leftover from our honey extraction earlier this month. Maybe some lip gloss or lotions. I'm not sure.
One last thing:
How stinkin' cute is that?
There's no directions with the pin, but it's pretty straight forward. Little donuts, M&M's and pretzels. I'm going to try to make a few for each of the nieces & nephews for Christmas morning.
Are you making anything this year?
