Christmas Gift 2010 December 29, 2010

Christmas has come and gone.  What is your reflection of this year?  Mine was very different from the past years.  The husband and I agreed to no gifts especially since we just did the cruise.  Our friends adopted a family from the United Christmas Service here in Indianapolis.  We offered to help them adopt this family and were assigned to the 4 year old boy.  Toys, clothes, and shoes were on his wish list.  I had to keep the hubby out of the toy section.  Feedback from our friend says they were very grateful for the gifts.   Looking forward to doing this again.

My mother-in-law is the best.  She reads my blog regularly and fully supports my creative side.  She even went to a couple of quilt shops with me in October.  The gift is very simple but exactly what I need.    

After reading about my 2011 Project she had an idea for a gift.  I absolutely loved it.  I am in trouble that I opened the box early, but this was worth it.  Good thing, I ran out of black thread last night. 

Thread to match the colors of the 2011 Project.

So I asked my Facebook friends what their gift of the season was.  Here are some of their responses:

Terrie – “A healthy husband!”

Chris – “A shake weight”  Fun considering what his profession is.

Joan – “Kool-Aid dyed yarn from my grandson”

Kim – “DisneyPrincess dress up kit for my daughter.  She has changed costumes at least 50 times and won’t stop.”  She enjoys giving gifts and the joy it brings others.  Her work has an Angel Tree and her department adopts a few children.  The giving is a bond for the co-workers.

Mother-in-Law – “Wedding pictures”

Mom – “Dinner with the family”

Thank you everyone for sharing with me.  Hope you and your family had a great Holiday season as well.

Etsy has just a trove of products that sometimes it’s hard to go through everything.  Today I was bored at work and wanted to create something that my husband would want if he was on the site.  I tried to combine his favorite things.  Can you guess what they are?

I LOVE making baby quilts.  A very good family friend asked me to create a signature square quilt for the arrival of her grand daughter.  She wanted greens and pinks.  With this quilt I have officially gone through my bright pink fabric stash. 

I started with a 1.5″ and 2.5″ strips of a variety of fabrics.  Each square was completely different. 

After cutting.

Needless to say grandma was happy with the end result.

Congrats!!!!
