Christmas is now past and I am so happy to say that it went off without any drama to spoil the event. I think that is the best present of all. Things were quiet and peaceful and everyone enjoyed everything that went on around them. I hope all of my readers had a wonderful, peaceful Christmas also.
I finished the girls hats two days before Christmas. They figured out what I was up to and watched intently on how they were both turning out with what colors I was using and the order that they were being added. Sunday night I was sitting with nothing to do, so a couple of scarves were made up quickly to go along with their new favorite hats. The hats were even tried out Christmas night when we made a quick trip to the Botanical Gardens for the Garden A Glow. We certainly picked a great night to go. Not too cold, no wind and no rain. We really love going each year, being surrounded by all the lovely lights. You just can't get tired of it.
Now after a few days of just relaxing, I have made a very definite decision to make my list of handmade gifts and get them made as quick as possible. I've not been one to get finished with gifts super early in the years past but lets just say with the ease of how things went this year, I will be making the event a sure fire thing every year now. Now to make sure I have all the yarn I will need for it all. :)
But before I started with the list I sat and started a quick little table runner project for the table. I loved the wintry blues and greens so much in Em's hat and scarf that I had to come up with something for the table to add a bit of color to the table.
As I sit in the craft room working on the runner I will be sporting my most favorite gift of all. I'm so loving my new slippers that I got for Christmas. They are warm and toasty, comfy, cozy. Love them! And the colors are just awesome. I run around the house all day and night with them on. Acorn slippers are awesome!
Every once in awhile I will have to take a nibble of a most awesome gingersnap cookie that Glenn brought home from the Great Harvest Bread shop in his route. I've not been a big fan in the past of gingersnaps but these sure have changed my mind on that. They are so soft, chewy and huge! YUM!!!
Every once in a while I will take a glimpse at my new book that I got for Christmas to figure out what other projects will need to be made for the wee ones of the family. And while glimpsing a few nibbles will be taken of the chocolate bar that Santa left in my stocking. :) I was pretty darn good this year you know. ;)
It's rather cold and breezy today. We fortunately did not get any of the snow that was forecasted last night. Over a foot is what we were told. Yeah. Just rain. The girls were so waiting for it all. It would have been nice but then poor Glenn would have to be out driving in it all day long. Luckily the mountains got it all. Well over two feet the last two days. The hills are so pretty with it all up there.
Well, I must be getting back to the yarn and goodies. They are not patient little things you know. I know they are giving me the 'eye' right now.
