We are a homemade-with-love kind of family. I am always challenged to make something that they will enjoy and that is useful. We love making toys that provide open ended play for lots of merry-making.
So here it goes, a pictorial guide of all the makings of this month.
This is Sara. My sweet daughter is simply in love with her newest friend. She is a cloth doll, made mostly with materials I had hanging around.
My dear husband made this beautiful doll bed and I made the bedding. You can't tell but I used a vintage linen fingertip towel for the front of the dolls quilt. The linen has the most beautiful and delicate embroidery on it.
This is the quilt I made for my oldest son. I saved old cotton shirts, denim, flannel sheets and shirts, and cotton pillow cases for quite awhile. I used a washable wool blanket for the batting and a *so* soft flannel sheet for the backing. It is quite lofty and snuggly and is keeping my sweet son so warm at night.
Here is the finished mini art quilt I did a few weeks ago. I have it hanging in one of my favorite areas of our home. The kid's art corner. They have each contributed a creation or two. And love to see their art hanging proudly.
I was so happy to see their excited faces as they each opened their gifts. I really do enjoy making gifts for my family.
As our birthday season closes, the holiday season begins. I'll take a little break and then dive back into gift making.
I pray that you all had a wonderful and joyous Monday. I am relaxing today and enjoying having my children home.
In God's Love, Tami
