One-And-A-Half Days


Dazzled by the spirit of the holiday, and all that I’ve been busy with.

I can’t believe this pile of gifts I made . . .

((  My heart is about to burst with pride that I sure turned around when I thought I could only manage the kitty   which got sent off over two weeks ago, and the felted bag which went to Mexico with Jeff. ))

Since then I really went into making overdrive.


All of my hand-made Christmas gifts are finished,   as of yesterday,  and tucked under the tree,  waiting for family to gather.  I hate to seem all smug & self-satisfied, but now that I am finished, I can’t help but just be elated, and enjoy myself !!!  This folks, is not something that happens every Christmas, as I am usually always making up into Christmas Day itself, and beyond.  But this year…. I just put my nose to the grindstone and did it.

( Interesting lights photo at top of page was accidentally shot while I was moving in front of our Christmas tree. )

Sending out loads of love and encouragement to all those elves busy still making, hoping all gets finished and that you may too relax ! ~~ xx.

  1. Congratulations! It is a good feeling to finish a handmade give and see it wrapped, ready to be given (or shipped). One thing I have tried to learn to do is be realistic with the gift(s) knitted. At least about the pattern and the time involved. This year I kept it simple. Now I already have plans for more ambitious gifts next year. Merry Christmas!

    • Thank you Claudia, and I agree to the rule Keep It Simple. Scarves, fast hats… they can realistically be finished in a reasonable time . One day I hope to get more complicated things made, but somehow birthdays are always somehow easier, because they come one at a time. Merry Christmas to you! xx

  2. Congratulations! That is a feat in itself. I bet it feels good. Wonderful even. I have been MIA for a while, but have to catch up on your posts. I’ll have time today, to catch up and read. I think you are so creative, its amazing. You’re amazing, Jen, and I wish I had your determination to be done by Christmas. I have still a lot to do. But enjoy your relaxation time and a job well done! I think the presents look so pretty.

    • Yes my dear Martha, I’ve been wondering where you’ve been. Awww, so sweet with your praise, as always, but you my dear are amazing ! Merriest of holidays to you and Oreo 🙂 xx

I'd love to hear what you have to say...
