Well, i dont know about anyone else, but money is tight so i think most of my gifts this year will be lovingly handmade!
So...then it hit me..why not have a christmas gift craftalong? So we can share what our plans are and our accomplishments along the way to Dec 25th?
We can put a list of what we plan/hope to make, and update with pics that are in progress or completed and mark out when done?

Here is my list for this Christmas season (so far):

#dolly clothes for my kiddos' babies

#crochet and sewn combination quilt for my parents in colors of reds

# Embroidered hand towels for Eliz

# rag rug for Holli

# polymer figurine for Marie

# Magnolia painting for Holli

# Apron for Charla

#

so that is my start! what about you?  Wink

hey there, yeah i saw that and read it over too Smiley it does look interesting.

I was thinking this one could be just gifts we plan to give away and there isnt a limit/rule or anything where you have to post a completed gift with photo per month or anything, in progress would be good if possible as i know some will take way longer than others to make (like a quilt i have in mind).
ANyway, i will be watching the other thread too, but if anyone would like to join me on here they are more than welcome to craft along with me Smiley

Imera~ I will be looking forward to seeing what crafty gifts you have in mind! Smiley
