Christmas vacation is nearly over for DH--he returns to school tomorrow. I still have a few Christmas items to take care of and then it will be truly past and time to focus on the new year. I thought this would be a good time to show a few items which were made as Christmas gifts this year.
I made quite a few of these hand towels as gifts. I have a little gizmo that you use to make bias tapes from strips of bias cut fabric and it was lots of fun binding the towels with the bias tape.
Rob worked for months on this little afghan for Maddie's room and was able to finish it in time for Christmas. The pattern is called Rambling Rows.
I made Maddie a little dress with cross hatched pintucks in the bodice front.
I also made Rob's mother a new bag for her walker out of Christmas fabrics:
Grandson Drew got some Popeye DVDs for Christmas and wanted to try some spinach while he was here. Here he is tasting his first bite:
Here's his reaction. I did tell him that it might take at least ten tries before you learn to like a new food.
One of Rob's students was unable to go home for the Christmas break and he spent part of the vacation here with us. Drew absolutely loved having David here to play various video and box games with him. Here David was graciously coloring with Drew:
We did try a few new recipes over Christmas and I will try to share them soon. I'll post one final picture of our youngest grandchild, Maddie taking a bath in the kitchen sink:
We learned at Christmas that there will be another new family member this year when Mark and Katie have a little one in July. We have even more blessings to look forward to.
