So go grab yourself a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate and maybe a Christmas cookie or two ... here we go:
I started off the month finishing up this baby quilt for my nephew and his wife who had their baby girl Natalie on November 28.
My Christmas crafting started with making this wreath from a wire coat hanger and dollar store ornaments.
Then I made these trees out of styrofoam cones and sheets of felt.
The crocheting started with this cute Elmo hat for our great-nephew Kael.
The bench outside our front door needed decorating, so I made this Snow Mama, complete with her very own crocheted hat!
I made several of these snowman shirts. This one is for my sister, but I also made smaller versions for my two great-nephews and a onesie for my newest great-nephew (without the bows of course).
That same great-nephew got other Christmas onesies, and his Mama and Daddy got crocheted hats (as well as some homemade cookies!).
A friend came over one day and we made these Christmas trees out of cardstock and wooden finials and candle holders.
I sewed these pillow covers for a friend who has a room in her house that she has decked out in red, white and blue and patriotic items.
My most time-consuming project of all was this T-shirt rag quilt I made for my nephew for Christmas. It includes t-shirts from when he was little all the way up until now (he is 23!). This is also the largest quilt I have tackled... it could easily fit on a twin/full bed.
Another sister wanted a Christmas shirt too, so I made this ornament shirt for her.
Finally, I made a scarf and matching hat for myself!
I'm sure I missed a few other little projects, but you get the gist of what I've been up to!
If you want the particulars of any of these projects, just leave me a comment.
Happy Holidays everyone ... I'm going to go take a well-deserved nap :)
