Merry Christmas, and finishing up some gifts!

 Hooray!  I finished another of these cuddle blankets for my youngest daughter-now just need to wrap it and put it under the tree.  Finally, some handmade blankets for my own house-although they don't really belong to me!  I used the Happy Go Lucky line from Bonnie and Camille, and bought the fabric from an online shop in PEI called Ella's Cottage.
 All this Christmas movie watching has given me extra knitting time.  I finished this teal cowl last night.  It's so pretty in person, it has some color variations in the wool, so soft and cozy.

Pin ItWell, this may well be the last post until Christmas.  I have some other project ideas in mind, but let's be realistic-this house needs some cleaning and I need to cook some food.  Merry Christmas all!

Teacher's gift

 I had a few orders for some list takers/passport wallets so I decided to make one for Charlotte's teacher as well (the teal/chartreuse damask).  I love these wallets to give as gifts, and mine served me very well to hold travel documents on our family trip this summer.

Pin ItThe girls have a birthday party to go to on Saturday, so I made this card for the birthday girl.  Turned out super cute, I love that coastal cabana color that Stampin Up! has out this year-new favorite!

Handmade gift..

Pin ItHooray for snow days!  I just finished this chenille blanket for my oldest daughter.  I used a lot of the Nordika line by Jeni Baker.  Next up, a blanket for my youngest daughter, and I need to make a few passport wallets/list takers this week as well.  I love giving handmade for Christmas-but time is running out!!

Cozy knit cowl for -20C!!!

Pin ItIt is so cold here this last week or so.  And tomorrow we are expecting our first real storm of the season; 20-30 cm of snow!!  Better than having a green Christmas like we have the last few years though. 
         I finished up this tweed cowl last night-it will be warming up a friend in PEI soon.  Happy Saturday all!!

Checking in....

 This poor, neglected blog!  Since I started my Facebook page, I find that I update that page and forget to post on here.  Anyhow, a few more cozy, flannel scarves that I sewed last week.

 And this is a large chenille blanket which is a gift for my sister-in-law.  It finishes at 56x56 and has white dot chenille on the back.  Perfect for a little snuggle on the couch.
Pin ItI just love the flower fabric on the bottom right, and so chose the coordinating colors from there. 
I'm linking up to The Needle and Thread Network today-feels like forever since I've done that!

Cozy knit cowls

Pin ItI made some knit cowls over the summer-finally decided to post them.  They are so cozy for this time of year.  I have another tweed one on the needles right now, and will share once it's done.
