So the weekend wasn't a total bust. Here's a re-cap of what I checked off the list.
buy fabric for the twisted quilt
buy a Christmas tree (for work)
buy the Christmas favor boxes **see below**
These are the things that I didn't get to:
start the boys' crayon holders
finish the ornaments I started in 1985
make a nice dinner (from the pinterest challenge)
**I didn't buy party favors, but I saw these on pinterest, here
, and thought I'd try making them for the office. They look pretty good. I just need to decide if that's what I want to do.
They still need ribbon and to be finished, but I think they're pretty cute. Every year I try to have some sort of favor at the table for our holiday dinner. Last year I bought little sleigh cupcake holders and filled them with candy. I really need to get to Michael's and see what other things I might be able to get. I guess I can do that next weekend.
I also worked on the sporty quilt. Just have one more area to quilt and then I need to add the binding. Not sure what to use for that.
Here are the cross stitch pieces that I made for my three
oldest (when they were the only three I had). I have to see what I can find at
a craft store to mount them and make them into ornaments. I had them
in little frames, but I wasn't happy with those. I want to give them to
them for Christmas this year (only 27 years later ...).
I still need to finish the Christmas stockings from last year. I was thinking of embroidering names on the stockings. Don't think that will l happen this year, but maybe someday.
