i love the address book idea! We only see my family at Christmas, so about 20 ppl total!
ideas do far...
mum : cross-stitch (have been working on a handful of samplers all year- my in-front-of-tv projects :)and maybe a quilt
dad : scottish background, so anything with family tartan or crest on will do... prob some kind of embroidery
sister : winemaker, single, early thirties... black and red quilt with asian inspired embroidery, kimono cross stitch and maybe more - she's taking us all to thailand in october so i better give her something nice this year!
brother : decorated wine glasses and charms
brothers wife : lump of coal (nah... too hard to find!) umm maybe some decorated tea towels (and prob one of the cross stitch's)
niece (18mths) : cupcake quilt
hubby : still thinking ...
ds 9 : store bought crap, and maybe a couple of cushions for his bedroom
dd 7 : waaay too easy, handmade bags and stuffies..prob make a few extra for her fav gf's too :0)
will prob make some ornaments and small items for the cousins and their families
i need some ideas for the chrissy cards? last year the kids and i did cute fingerprint reindeer and sleighs, but im having a mental blank right now and cant think of anything to put on this years! have about 50 on the list...so not too many.. ideas welcome!
