It’s a Handmade Christmas at Millbrae… Part 1.

T-Shirt Yarn1a Wreath1a Wreath2aIt all sounded like a good idea when my sister suggested it; all gifts (excepting kids) must be handmade.
Awesome, do so love a good challenge. Days and weeks pass and I have not done a thing… no surprise there – forward planning is really not my strong suit. Gulp, it’s mid-November and there is nada, nothing made for anyone – bugger.
OK, so it really is waaaay past the time when I should have been busily creating loads of wonderful-ness for the fam. Surely it is never too late? I mean, I have a whole month, right?
So last week I began. Two gifts down, seven to go, easy peasy lemon squeezy. Sorry, can’t share the pics with you as yet – where would the excitement be for the recipients if I was to reveal all now. Except it’s mostly the blokes left – what the hell do you make them, Frilly aprons for the BBQ, Scrubby/Soapy stuff for seriously dirty hands, what the hell?
I am coming up empty handed in the fabulous ideas department.
All suggestions will be gratefully accepted, seriously. I am begging you.
All beginnings of panic aside, I have also made a really cool wreath for the Front Door. 2 hours from start to finish. My kind of project, messy, quick and using only scraps – woohoo.

That giant ball of t-shirt yarn has been crocheted into 3 splendid treasures and is only the beginning of this particular addiction I’m afeared…

More soon, til then, hug someone unexpectedly.  Not someone completely random tho, that could get awkward.


So, what's on your mind?
