Merry Christmas!!!

If you have not finished those last minute gifts...just give up. It's more fun for everyone, especially you, not to have to sit up til the wee hours. You know you'll be cranky all Christmas Day...and your family probably knows it too.

I finished these "wristers" for my mom a couple weeks ago. Nice washable wool.
And a detail. Thank you to my lovely hand model...heehee, it's me! (Sorry, I think I'm a bit giddy!) See the blue batik in the background? That will be showcased in a different post with machine piecing. Lovely backdrop for winter wristers, don't you think?

In two evenings I knit this boa. One skein each of black and red fun fur. The knitting goes fast, but pulling the "eyelashes" back out to fluff the scarf is not nearly as much fun.

Then one evening I made two potholders and four coasters. These are both for the same friend. No worries...she doesn't read my blog!

And two pillowcases. Sorry, I am of the less is more thought for pillowcases. No fancy cuff and trim. I choose fabrics I love and want as much of those as I can get into each case. Plus I can make more in less time, making them the perfect last minute gift!

Merry Christmas to all, and to all, a good night. Spend quality time with your loved ones, remember our troops in your prayers, and tell people how much you love them. Don't assume they know.

Special hugs to each and every one of you,


  1. Merry Christmas, Sharon. Thanks for taking the time to share your life through your blog - I love reading about what you do.


  2. Merry Christmas!!!! I love all the gifts, especially the horse pillow cases. I managed to knit a scarf for DD's teacher (the woman deserves MUCH MUCH more!!!) and felted a pair of slippers for said child. And, I did a Fair Isle stocking, again, for said child. I think that most people have no idea the amount of work that goes into handmade items and most, with a few rare exceptions, would rather have a store bought type gift. It is a chilling thought to gift something someone wouldn't really enjoy..... Especially, when I enjoy most things I make...LOL!

    HUGS and fun stuff...


  3. Sorry I didn't post sooner but been busy with grandkids...but I want to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!


Don't be shy! Leave me a's so lonely without hearing from you!
