What I *didn't* do *this* year:

What with having a new baby and baptizing her I haven't had as much time to make as many handmade Christmas presents. :c( I more or less accept this, but it's still kind of sad. I'd like to think next year might be different, but I'm not sure how having a toddler around is going to make it better! I was thinking about the things I made for Christmas last year and I realized that I never posted any of them because I didn't want to spoil the surprise for people! So instead of posting what I did do this year, I'm going to post what I did last year.

Also I'm tired and brain dead and lazily looking at old photos.

Quilt for my niece, Ruth.



Quilt for my niece, Rachel.

...and matching pillow

Set of clothes for my goddaughter Julia's AG doll.

Knitted pants for her sister Sarah's CP doll.

...and nightgown

Crocheted balls for my baby nephew, Crawford.

I also made superhero capes and masks for my nephews, twins Peter and Andrew and little Milo. For some reason I can't find photos of them. (The oldest nephew, Gannon, got a book. (c; ) I made a lot of other things for various family members, not many of which I have photos taken. Hm.

This year, I just couldn't pull it off. I made small things for all the children in the family and had to leave it at that (except for the baking, of course). I'm working on being "ok" with that. After all, I can't do it all and I'm not superwoman!

  1. Ruthie travels with her quilt for her dolls and A and P were wearing their masks this morning. They're treasured gifts!

  3. Aw, I'm glad to hear the kids still like their things, Rebecca! :) I hope they like the ones from this year.

    Em, I can make you some! They're not hard. The yarn is all cotton so they're extremely washable and don't get fibers in the baby's mouth.

  4. We love the doll clothes still. Jane especially loves the pants. Having lost hers - I don't know how many - years ago, she really appreciated them.
