Has anyone mentioned to you that there is a financial crisis on right now? Well, apparantly there is. People are tightening their belts this year and I thought it would be a great excuse to do something a little different to cut costs. So I'm having a handmade Christmas. I love receiving handmade items for gifts. My daughter Sheena used to make all her own cards - well, before she had three babies! She still will make one for me each birthday because she knows how much I value them. I actually value the home-made card more than I do a store bought gift.
I've knit so many items for the kids and grandkids - but usually sweaters and blankets. However, this year they're all getting knitted toys. Now, I've got one done so far, Miss Ballerina Bunny - for either Sydney or Alethea. So, seeing as we're really getting on in the season, I'm going to be knitting my little fingers to the bone. I've been procrastinating. Thank goodness for the last minute! Or else I'd never get anything done.
I'll keep you posted on the toy parade and post some pics!
