Whew....

Finally, time to take a breath. We traveled for Christmas, which is always stressful with two small babies. Luckily, we had plenty of help in NJ. I gave only two crafty presents for Christmas, but alas, I did not take pictures of either of them! Hopefully I can coax some pictures from the recipients. For my sister, I made a lap quilt using some vintage house fabric I have been saving for a very very special occasion. I would say that moving to NZ is pretty special. I hope she likes it! For my two nieces, I made them each a set of doll bedding. The set included a quilt and a pillowcase, both made from the vintage sheet fat quarters I received from Elizabeth in the swap. We also got them the sweetest little doll beds. Taking a cue from House on Hill Road, I wrapped everything in brown paper and string. They looked so lovely under the tree.

those gorgeous doll beds are stunning. I hope they were thrilled. I am a big fan of simple wrapping myself too. For christmas I use Ikea brown paper and red ribbon.
