Happy New Year

Well I wasn't going to do a post because I figured everyone is out returning gifts and buying, on sale, Christmas paper but I decided to go ahead anyway. It's not that I have anything to say, maybe a few questions and I wanted to put up the photos of the finished gifts I made this year. Here they are


I made this little pillow for my gd. I loved the little green buttons that were in a bottle of buttons I bought once. She is 15 so I was trying to make it not too babyish and she likes lime green and bright pink.



This is how I finished the other one for my dd. I put it in a memory box I had so that I could add things to it. I thought the flowers on the bottom made it look like she was walking through a field of flowers.




This is the scarf I made for my other dd. It could use a little blocking but it turned out beautifully.



My other gd wanted my to make this for her. I learned a lot from making this. It was difficult but I got it done and she is happy. I hurt my finger in the middle of making this so I just wanted to get it done. It is the earth bender symbol from a series that she loves. We watch it together when she comes over to visit me.

So for my questions- Have you thought about 2012 yet? Any goals or plans for the new year? I think I'm going to not make goals this year, but I hope to be more of myself this year and stop listening to all those inner should do's and those that we think other people want to put on us. Do you know what I mean?

Is anyone thinking about next Christmas yet? lol. I know it's too soon, but I hope that I will get some ideas to make Christmas gifts again. I tried to use as much as I could materials that I already had but the yarn I had to buy and it can be expensive. I want to start doing something with my stash of fabrics and plan to try and make some bags, totes and purses. I also want to try my hand at some place mats I saw that were patchwork. I also like these little tea mats that I've been seeing. They are small than a place mat and larger than a coaster. I think they could be fun to make. They are suppose to be large enough for a mug of tea and a snack. I look forward to getting new ideas from Pinterest this year.

Happy New Year
