Baby Snuggle Blanket...

So not a Christmas craft, but a quick one! Made for a friend at Keith's work, a 24" square snuggle blanket with ribbon tags. These are a quick project, as long as your sewing machine is cooperating!

They are fun to make and give, but don't try to sell them because they are patented by Taggies. Boo!

A robe for Cody....

Aarrr, a pirate's robe for me!
Yay, another project to mark off the list! I just have to hem the sleeves, on both robes.

Robes and Neck warmers...

Here is Tyler's robe, again. (This is me having to have everything in one place)
Yesterday also produced neck warmers for my Mom (light blue), my brother's fiance' (pink), and here daughter Ashley (dark blue, BIG BSU fans). My favorite part are the buttons on my moms, love the flowers!
How they fit....
The book that both of these projects came from is called Sew What! Fleece by Carol Jessop & Chaila Sekora. These are very easy projects, great for learning with, especially when you are new to pattern work, like me!

Grandparent's Scrapbooks....

Two years ago I started giving Scrapbooks to both sets of Grandparents for Christmas, they start in Nov and run through Oct of the current year. The first one I did was through Snapfish and it turned out great. Last year I tried my hand at actual scrapbooking and I'm hooked!

So here are the first three 2-page layouts for this years books, they are the same for both sides:
Nov was done free form, just putting some things together. Starting with Dec (and using this the rest of the year) I'm using the book Cherish by Jeanette R Lynton. It's fabulous! It maps the pages out for you, then tells you how to cut the different papers to minimize waste and little hints for embellishments. There are more books like it and I can't wait to get them!
