One sewed all her clothing and made clothing for me when I was young. The other knitted like crazy and made me sweaters and things.
Right now the house is filling with things to make homemade gifts. Mostly for the kids, but we are putting together two boxes to mail off this weekend. Both will have homemade soap and other things.
Ashley and I both hope to make one, she for her hope chest and me for our bed. We are going to wait till Janaury for her to work on hers. I took this picture this morning while it was dark so the colors aren't as vibrant, but this is part of it so far. When I am done I will hang it on the line outside and get some pictures in the natural light.
Ashley is getting three skirts, hubby and I picked out the fabric Saturday along with blouces to match. She is also getting drawing supplies so I am thinking over a pencil/supply bag to make as well. It is very fullfilling making these things for family and it is showing our love for them so much more than just a present bought from the store.
I hope your day is a joyful one.
