It's the day after Christmas and all through the house, the kids are still sleeping ...and the Mom is up early doing dishes, cooking food and cleaning up the house. Magical Christmas memories are created by Moms who love their family and work hard to make it all happen!
We had quite a snow storm just before Christmas, but the kids were able to get here for Christmas Eve and we had a wonderful celebration together 💖
I didn't get many hand made Christmas gifts finished this year. I did make a few more quilted bowl cozies. Click here to see the pattern I use. Can you believe that Len's Mill (the big junk/fabric store in Ontario) did not have any hockey themed fabric the week before Christmas?
Oh well, I got a Canadiana fabric and it worked fine for the men's gifts.
I had hoped to give a cross stitched gift to my son but it was too hard, and I just couldn't get it finished. There was a bleeding incident that caused me to throw in the towel on this one! I didn't realize I had poked my finger until the floss started coming up red! There is more blood on the back so I'm not sure if this will be abandoned or not?!? The weird thing about this is I didn't feel a thing and had no idea my finger was really bleeding. I guess that is a job hazard of hand stitchers?
On the design wall today is my first block for part #5 of the Quiltville mystery that was posted on Friday. I will have lots of time to sew this week once the Christmas chaos is sorted out, and many more of these scrappy blocks will be made!
