For Christmas, I started making twister wreaths for each family on my list. I quickly realized that I could not make 7 in 10 days so started plans on an alternate project. I chose candlemats and quickly started creating seven different kits so that I could do the sewing all at once. After creating 4 different kits, I chose a DIFFERENT pattern and began all over again.
I finally settled on a Toad in a Puddle and created 7 candlemats, purchased 7 candles, stuffed my giftbags, and lined them up under the tree.
I have made a promise to make one Christmas gift each month in 2011, so as to enjoy my December vacation without having to work on "must does".
