it's been a busy holiday!

I'm finally back to blogging.  I have been so busy working on holiday gifts that I haven't taken the time to post.  Diana and I have been busy making candle wraps, notebook covers, planner covers, table runners, basket liners, curtains and the start of tree skirts for next year.  Yes I said NEXT YEAR!  I always start the year with the same new years resolution - not waiting until the last minute to make gifts.  And every year I do the same.  I wait until December and then sew for hours at a time to get things done.  I always think of things I wish I had time to make and vow that I will start early next year.  So here I am promising myself that I will not wait so long next year. Hence, the reason for beginning our tree skirts is to have them done BEFORE Christmas.  Diana and I will be making our own and will also make one to give to Jen for her birthday in October and one to Meagan and Ryan to give them at their wedding shower (they are getting married in October).

And now that the holidays are over, I decided to break away from the sewing machine just a bit and work on a couple hats.  Everyone knows that my favorite thing to knit is hats.  So I first made Addison a Banana Republic knock-off hat and it turned out so cute.  I then decided to knit the adult version of it for Jen.  You can see just how cute they both look in them.

So here's to a great and productive 2009!!!!  Happy New Year!
