This is the first Christmas in SIX (count 'em..SIX) years that I have only made ONE crafty gift. I made my bil a pan of cinnamon rolls and several family members homemade peppermint schnapps~ and lots of sweets, mind you, but only ONE single solitary gift from a place other than the kitchen.
oh yeah-and my sewing machine bonked out on me after the move. My only Christmas gift request was to get it looked at...and it still hasn't happened YET-but VERY soon, me hopes. (and prays. and pleads. and begs. and pines after.)
So-even though I wanted SO badly to get some crafting done, I guess God thought it for my own good that I was given a hiatus. So be it.
The one gift I DID make, was fittingly for my beloved. He had mentioned wanting a beanie hat, coveting especially hard upon the slew of gorgeous winter hats the children recently received.
So, I crocheted him one. And it felt really good!
Now, he can't ever say I never made him anything! ;-)
