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.
