Firstly, thank you everyone for your lovely comments and congrats on my 1 year blogiversary post yesterday! I've had so much fun reading through your comments & choices. I completely forgot to say when I'd draw the winning number, so I'll wait until Thursday and do it then.
Good luck everyone (you'll need it 'cos Hadley has entered and she wins everything!).
I've made it to the end of my Handmade Christmas Present list. This will truly be a Handmade Christmas (Kirsty eat your heart out!).
Every member of my family will receive at least one handmade gift from me.
Including teachers' pressies, the totals are:
3 mugrug/hostess box sets
7 journal/diary covers
3 sets of change trays
6 Tea bag wallets
3 tissue pouches
6 make up bags
1 gift bag
1 Batbag/toy pouch
1 laptop sleeve
2 doll quilts/pillow sets
3 mini baskets
3 pairs of crochet fingerless gloves
1 crochet headband
1 cot quilt for a Christmas baby (still to arrive!)
and a partridge in a pear tree!
I mentioned above a crocheted headband. I got carried away making these cute flowers from a pattern Sarah gave me.
And I thought they would look lovely on crocheted headbands. My youngest always wears headbands to tame her magnificent thick, blonde locks, so this will be an extra wee stocking filler for her.
Modelled by Daughter no.1
And one last pic (or 2) of the diary cover my hubbie requested.
Of course, just because I've finished my list, doesn't mean I'll be sitting back on my laurels. Oh no!
The kids finish school today and tomorrow, which will mean a demand for Christmassey activities (hopefully not involving shops!) and I might even get a UFO from the summer finished (more on that tomorrow).
Hope you are getting organised and not getting stressed!
