Handmade Christmas Gifts 2013

I'm a bit under the weather this week. Clearly it's my turn for the lurgy, so the past few days have been spent with a hot water bottle on the sofa mooching around pinterest, planning which projects I will tackle next, having a look what veggies I want to try planting this year, and doing a bit of the never ending tapestry I have on the go.

I thought I'd get one of my catch up posts done. There were a few things I made as Christmas presents I wanted to make a note of before I forget. I love making things as gifts and always have great plans for doing lots but Christmas always seems to creep up on me so fast. This year I promise myself I will start earlier (which I probably won't).

I did a small framed watercolour for my cousin's little boy who was born just before my noise monster. There were some bead bracelets for the other two girls, and a crochet lap quilt complete with pom pom's for my mum. I would have liked to have got more done. I had planned to make some decorations and some Christmas cards (although in the end we decided to donate the Christmas card money to Shelter instead of sending any), but it wasn't to be. I've still got a blanket to sew up which was going to be for Christmas but is now a Birthday present. This year I really must start in about June!
