Christmas, Snowmen and Sewing

We had a nice time the other night with all of the kids and grandkids here for Christmas. It was busy, fun and exhausting! I forgot to take pictures of the things I made, but here is some of the stuff.....12 pillowcases, 12 mice ornaments, 7 building blocks, 6 hotpads, 4 tissue cases, 3 drawstring bags, 3 crocheted dishcloths, 2 crocheted scarves, 2 baby blankets, 2 covered photo albums, 1 lap quilt, 1 baby bib, 1 tote bag, and I'm almost finished with a crocheted hat, scarf and another dishcloth. I think that's all. I still have so much more to get done!!!!

Here is a picture of Jace, Ezie and Mal with their snowman after it snowed last week.
My kids love the snow!


Here is my grandson, Anthony, with his snowman that him and his momma made.





Here is the fabric covered Grandma's Brag Books that I made. It turned out pretty nice, if I may say so myself.
I hope the recipients like them!!
There is a slot to put a piece of cardstock with the child's name and BD.

I just used the little $1.00 photo albums that Wal-Mart sells.

Okay, I have to go get busy. Have a wonderful day!!!
