This week has turned into crafting central!! My Stars!! Is this an art bead blog or a craft one? I hope you'll bear with me while I let other things take over my creativity until the 25th.
I have projects all other the place. I feel like I am in a creation tidal wave. I have my secret knitting project for a mystery recipient going. And as I knitted the other day, I decided that I don't just want to make things for the usual people that I make for (Mom, Dad & Sister), I want to make things for Ron & the kids too. Things that aren't from Santa... things that MOM made special because she loves them.
So, I started to crochet Lauren a poncho. I am modifying a pattern I found online to make it little girl size. It is a wonderful purple color (I'll share pics when it is done) and I think I'll be adding a yummy glass button to it. And I have decided to make the boys pajama pants. I usually get them each a couple pairs from Old Navy, but there is no reason I can't do it myself. For Ron, he is tougher. I haven't really narrowed that one down yet. I am thinking maybe matching PJ pants to go with the boys'.
I know what you are thinking... "Kerry, what does matching pjs and a poncho have to do with these quilt pictures?" These are what I spent my morning doing with my Mom. She come by earlier and we spent a few hours piecing together the face of a quilt she is working on. She had all the blocks ready and we sewed them together, adding all the edging. I love my multicolored pins don't you?
All this making of things has me wondering what kind of homemade projects you all are working on? Drop me a comment and let us know! Are you making your own Christmas cards this year? Are all your sisters getting pretty jewelry you made? Did you knit or crochet some goodies? Are you painting your own Christmas village houses? Don't worry, I don't blame you if you are having a store bought Christmas! Goodness knows I have made more trips to Target in the past 2 weeks then I would like to count and I don't even want to know what the credit card bill is going to look like!!
