How fun is this Christmas present?
Well, at least for me it was!
Mom was stumped as to what to get me,
She haunts all these quilt shops all the time
and tells me about all the wool that they have.
I told her that I would always take wool.
And this is what she came up with!
Lucky for me,
the shop had a half your age discount that day,
let's just say,
got a pretty good discount!
I have a hard time cutting into "real" wool.
Not so hard when it comes from the thrift shop.
Two days before Christmas,
found me sliding through
running my hands along the skirt racks.
Sure love to find a nice wool skirt.
There is so much wool in them,
and they are easy to cut up.
I saw this jacket.
I don't buy jackets,
but this was too good to pass up.
I made these for each of the girls.
They were in my mind for weeks,
but there was just no time.
They are candle mats,
the candle sits on the bottom.
Well, you get the picture.
Also, the week before Christmas
in a weak moment,
Jenn and I
and these four
headed to Pittsburgh
to see the lights.
Not the ratio of adult to child that I normally like,
it's not as if we were getting them out of the car.
They would be strapped down the whole time.
we had nothing for their mouths.
and those two innocent looking ones in the back.
The six year old
two year old.
the whole way home.
That little one is a lot like her mother.
A quick Christmas present finished at the last minute.
Kendall had been with me at the fabric store and wanted this material.
And a snap purse for Marilyn to fit her checkbook
A hat for Gracelyn
with interchangeable flowers.
Didn't get a pic of those though.
Sunset Christmas evening.
We celebrate our family Christmas on another day
and this year it was Monday.
JWS and I ran to the shop to get the newspaper on Christmas
and this was the sunset.
Certainly doesn't look like December
