About this time of year it really settles in on me that the holidays are just around the corner. My mom and my husband both just celebrated their birthdays and for me that means it is time to start prepping for Christmas as I have never prepped before.
I'm working hard to have a handmade Christmas this year. We have agreed to get a few new things that we need, like underwear, and some things for the house. The kids may get a couple of books or movies. But 99% of what we do this Christmas is going to be from our own two hands.
I've been gradually working my way through the gift list that I made up a few months ago, but there is still a lot left to go. With a little elbow grease, and some Christmas music I know I can get it done in no time flat.
I don't have any photos to show from this past week because I have been down with the flu, but I will update with some that are waiting on my camera just as soon as I get a chance.
In the mean time, here's a photo of a dress I refashioned for my daughter last spring. It is one of my favorite refashions. When I took this photo I hadn't yet trimmed off some of the threads, so my apologies for that. Hopefully you can get the idea from this photo though.
