Not everything makes it into the Christmas cupboard. Some things do though!
Currently I am working on a crochet rug that is going to be cot size. I think cot size can also be a knee rug depending on who you give it to. This is in gelato/pastel stripes. I am loving working on it. All the time I think "I'll just get up to the next colour" and this keeps me going!
So far this month I added grub roses to some little tops for Harper. I added little roses at the neckline and wrist.
I am enjoying that pretty much all the time she is wearing something I have made or embroidered or Mum has!
I added a frilly edge to another pair of little socks.
These basic little tops are really inexpensive. Just a touch of embroidery makes them nice.
I finished (and put in the gift cupboard) a knitted soft pink rug. This is super soft.
I hemmed some of the flannelette to make super soft and extra large hankies. The rest are just torn up and folded ready as disposable hankies... since my supply was very diminished.
Mum made Harper two more knitted skirts. She wears them a lot. The first one is in denim blues...
The next one is in pinks. As modelled very well don't you think?
It has lots of textures and is really warm.
Also Mum made a heap of hats and headbands for a charity she likes to give to.
Plus a baby rug for a family with a newborn... but I don't have a picture of that one.
That is about where I am up to this month. I wish I had another set of arms as that would be helpful sometimes.
What are you working on and how is your gift cupboard progressing? If you are growing produce and canning just now then this counts as produce can be gifts. I count my jam making in summer as jars of jam go into many of my food gifts and hampers. But here the cold and rain weather has us mostly indoors and this is a good time for me to sew and crochet. We need to go along with what the season presents. And sometimes when the weather is terrible or extreme a good plan B is to get on with something indoors and work on your gifts and crafts. It all adds up in the end! xxx
