A Handmade Christmas

Since I didn't have the chance to share some of my hand made Christmas gifts with you before Christmas, I thought I'd share a couple now.  A while back, Beth over at Love, Laugh, Quilt gave a great tutorial for making her version of a rag doll.  I really liked them, and so I made one for my niece.  I added a few of my own touches, and I loved her.  I have to admit, she was hard to send off in the mail!  I had her perched on my sewing table for a few days, and I missed her once she was gone!  I got over it quickly, especially when my sister-in-law and brother sent me a great pic of her being loved on by my niece.  She named her Arthur!

Another brother was the recipient of a fuzzy pair of crocheted slippers.  These were actually a year late.  I had made them last year, but was off on the size, so I re-did them. (Somehow, I thought his feet were nearly three sizes bigger than they actually are!) I just didn't mean for them to take so long!  This year's sizing was a success, though, so hopefully they were worth the wait!

We had a wonderful Christmas this year.  Different in many ways, but with lots of good memories nonetheless.  I hope yours was memorable, too.

More soon,
