Our Christmas this year was loud and eventful. We spent it with my husband's side of the family which meant we had 4 boys under 6 all opening presents at the same time - it was loud. Very, very, very loud.
As a crafter I enjoy giving and receiving handmade gifts. This year, I had grand plans to make pot holder/hot pad sets for a lot of people that fell through. Two little ones being sick at the same time meant very little sewing time in early December. I guess the good news is that I have a jump start of them for next year! I did manage to finish up two crochet hook cases for my Mother-In-Law and Aunt-In-Law. I kept it simple with a single band of patchwork on the outside of each. Both are big crocheters so I know the gifts will be well used.
The trip also meant that I started working on my travel project again! I had put it away early in the summer to finish up a few other projects so it was nice to dive back in and sew up a bunch of stars. Hopefully soon, I can lay it out and add the new pile of stars on and take updated pictures.
