Christmas Gifts, etc.

The last 72 hours have been jam packed with crafting. First came teacher gifts. The other day over on Ladybird Ln., Carlee posted a free printable of a sweet story, so I used that, made some simple mitten ornaments to put a gift card in and added a note from us. There was only a minor glitch in that the bookstore I was getting the gift cards from doesn't do cards, they do certificates which did not fit in the mitten. Oh well. :)
It looked a little clumsy, but they all liked them.
I got to practice my (I think) blanket stitch to embellish the mittens. I didn't do too badly.

Next was the baby blanket for a gal at church. I did my usual over-sized flannel receiving blanket, using the 30x30 receiving blankets from Target. It took 5, so I had to supplement with leftovers from past blankets.

I love those ladybugs!

And last, I made poptop surprise cans for the ladies I visit teach. (I noticed in the tutorial I left out doing the top covers. Sorry! I will go fix it soon.)

They were filled with these goodies.

Also, today I received the jewlery I won from GoodieJar. That was FAST! Here is the one my daughter chose. She loves it!
