Well I haven't got much to show you this week. With it being so close to Christmas I've been trying to finish as many as possible and get them wrapped.
I do still have my elephant hat that isn't finished. I'm going to try and get it made up before the year is finished.
I have posted pictures below of everything I've been making for Christmas. My family don't read my blog so it's safe to post pictures :-)
I don't have a picture but I made Ryan's teacher and the lollipop lady a mug cosy and bought a mug for each of them to go on. I do have a picture of the ones I made for the men in my family. I made one for my dad, my husbands dad and my husbands step-dad. I hope they like them. I'm sure they won't, my husbands family don't seem to appreciate hand-made gifts the way mine does.
This is a fantastic pattern from:
I love this pattern, very easy to follow and perfect size!
My mums tea pot cosy:
Last but not least the scarfs that I have made for the women in the family.
One for Ryan's Auntie Sara, My husbands Mum and his dads partner.
For my first year of making presents I don't think I'm doing too bad. We are hoping to start earlier next year and maybe make things for hampers from scratch as well. I think it means so much more when you have taken the time and effort to make a gift. We do have one gift to finish. we bought one relative a big biscuit jar but before we wrap it we are going to make a load of cookies to fill the jar.
I hope your christmas gifts are coming along well. If I don't get time to post before Christmas I hope you all have a good one. Thank you to all the people who have left comments you have made me feel part of something that is wonderful. At last I have found a place where it's ok to make things!
