Where did December Go??

It was a good Christmas.

Most years I struggle trying to get/find/make the perfect gift for everyone - and most years I don't quite make it. But this year was satisfying.

I did a lot of sewing, but this is the only thing I actually photographed. It's a portable, washable "thuper fatht rathe car track" for Makaio.

I used this road trip fabric and ironed on little images - hotels, cars, compasses, and this little camp site! So cute. And then I finished the whole thing with iron-on vinyl so it's protected against little messes.

Here was the conversation with Makaio before opening every gift:

Makaio, it's a gift for you!
What is it?
I don't know. Let's open it to find out!
Is it a super fast race car? (said with a lisp)

And about half the time, it was a super fast race car.

True Romance...

D says to me, "I went to Costco, and I was going to buy you flowers, but thought you'd probably rather have a roasted chicken instead."

Sadly, he was so right.

I made these stockings from a Goodwill sweater. The sweater had holes in the elbows, so I didn't feel so badly about cutting it up.

I lined them with some fabric I already had in my stash.

I love 'em.
