The best part was being with my children and their loved ones. Precious times.
Gifts for the Loft! The wall hanging is handmade from a scrapping kit (my daughter is incredibly talented, scrapping and paper arts). And the tote is from Thirty-One - I was so touched, tears.
Note to self: I must stop eating candy from my stocking ... well, maybe slow down, not stop :-)
And I have a little gift money (thank you all, dear children), so I've been doing some online shopping. From Girl Charlee, my favorite store for knits, these are all 100% cotton jersey:
|Abstract Collage Burnout|
|Golden Hibiscus Outlines|
|Ethnic Sunburst Circles|
I really do have a tunic on the sewing table, using this mid-weight cotton calico from Holly Lobby. It's so pretty, very soft, and has gold metallic on the fans and medallions.
