December Strut Your Stuff

 christmasthroughtheyearbutton It’s time to post December’s projects.  A fun year of making a present a month has paid off!  In the last week I have wrapped and sent off 8 hand made gifts.  Normally in the past I would to wishing I had made hand made gifts.  Thanks Allie for this wonderful club.  You can check over here at Allie’s to see what others have made for the month.   First off I did finish The Dots countdown to Xmas bags on December 1st001 .  The boys have had great fun opening a bag each day, and my daughter in law has a Elf On The Shelf that has been helping with the goodies….so much fun!!!012   Then there was the sweet little button Xmas tree we made in our holiday workshop class.  So fun, and easy.  A great project for this time of year.  I got both of the bindings on Grinch Xmas quilts for the boys (and pillowcases too), but no picture :-( !!  They are happily using them at their house though.

Last weekend was full of Xmas fun.  Friday night was gingerbread house night with daughters friends from high school….and boyfriends!!!   The020 Dots had a ball….little one here loved eating the candy!!  Sunday was our annual family Christmas party hosted by my sister in law and brother in law.  It was so much fun.   Italian was the theme for the day, with my sister in law making the most yummy Lasagna….ending the day with the swap and steal gift exchange….always a highlight of the day.  This year we were 33 plus, so you can bet there was lots of stealing!! 

Now for me wrapping has to be done.  I haven’t even started, so I better make tracks.  Happy Tuesday to you!!!
