Of course, the presents I crocheted for people have no pictures because I’m a flake. So, you won’t see the fabulous slippers I made for my and Mike’s moms. They’re fabulous! So, um, if you two moms would like to take pictures of them so I could post them here, that would be pretty awesome, thanks!
Baking yummy smelling scented ornaments (seriously, how cute are these? They were easy to make and incredibly fun to paint! Don’t eat them though, they’re almost entirely salt!):
And playing with my new toys:
I totally sewed that! I my BRAND NEW SEWING MACHINE! Hooray!
I actually made these for my dad for Christmas:
I haven’t finished my step dad’s yet. Oops…I’m also working on some jammies for Ollie, and a hook roll for a friend of mine.
Speaking of hook cases, sewing machines and people I love, have I mentioned recently how awesome the people I know are? That Christmas list I made, the totally hypothetical list was actually read by those people and I am happy to say that I can cross some really badass stuff off my list. Mom got me a really cool hook case in my favorite color, my sister “gave” me an organizer for my threads, Sara got me the yarn snips of my dreams (the bus patrons are far less terrified of me these days) and Mike’s mommy got me a sewing machine! All of these things have provided me with hours of childlike joy and entertainment.
I can’t wait to figure out clothes! I’m working on it, but I have to get a lot better at stitching things, and I definitely need to figure out how to keep thread monstrosities from happening in the bobbin case. :-s Woo!
I hope your Christmas was good too!
