My Dad pointed out that there were lots of homemade gifts under the tree this year.
I worked fast and furious to finish mine up on time, with some success (and some late ones, too). We added some new elves to the gang, and I did a couple new projects-- a shopping list/coupon wallet for moms, and crayon wallets for kids who like to make art on the go, plus some fun bird ornaments that I swapped in our exchange with the Morris/Woloszyn gang.
I received some wonderful homemade gifts, too. My favorites were this hand knitted and felted dumpling purse made by Amanda and the in-progress shrug, Abby's making from this pattern. You guys are awesome crafters -- thank you for taking time to make me something so pretty!
