What you have all been waiting for...

All the stuff I made for Christmas! Now that all the gifts have been received I can post them. Here is the quilt I made for my mother, I was SO worried about getting this done and really is wasn't as bad as I had thought it would be.
I embroidered this poem

Then on each of the plain squares I traced all the grand kids hands and had them write their names. I traced their names and embroidered those on there too. My mother got all teary eyed when she opened it and has shown it off to all her friends.

I made my dad this huge Boise State Broncos blanket. He LOVES that it covers him from head to toe and keeps him toasty warm!

Christmas PJ's

Here are Maddie's, I made coordinating shirts to go with them.

Bailey's has a skull on her shirt to compliment the skull pattern on the pants.

Kodie's has skulls on them but the hearts stood out so much more so she has a heart on her shirt.

and last but not least the little poser, I think hers are my fav!

Here are a couple of headbands that I made for some girls that do some great stuff with Bailey and Kodie

Here are the purses that I made for my nieces. The blue one is for my oldest niece and the pink one if for my youngest niece.

Here I made some pillowcases for my nephews

I didn't get pictures of my brothers etched glasses or his fiance's apron but they too were enjoyed!

Birthday Pajamas and Teacher Christmas gifts

So for every ones birthday I got flannel really cheap last Thanksgiving and planned it out for the year. Well somehow my brother was overlooked and I had to get flannel the other day but here are his pants.My dads pjs have golf balls all over them
So for Christmas I usually try and make stuff but this year I found these cute lotion packs pretty inexpensive at Bath and Body Works so here they are

This I made for Bailey's Student teacher Mr. Martin full of hugs and kisses. His last day was today so we wanted to send him off with hugs and kisses!

Then here are the little paper mugs I made for the bus driver, the secretary and all the special teachers the girls have like art, music, pe, library and such. They are filled with cocoa packets, marshmallows and hugs and kisses.

Hope everyone enjoys their stuff!

Advent activities

This is what we made today. We always have to have popcorn garland on our tree to give it that homemade feeling, it just wouldn't be Christmas without it!
