Happy Holiday To You All!!!

As the day is ending, I hope you all had a wonderful holiday, and your bellies are full.  I'm finishing us dinner right now as we speak.  Mr. D had to work today, so we're not having Christmas dinner for another hour or so.  As my friends and family have dubbed me Santa's little elf helper, I have been very busy the past couple of months getting all of my gifts ready.  I decided this year had to be a handmade Christmas, and every present was well received.

There were pajama bottoms with matching t-shirts which I purchased from Joanns;

reversible place mats with matching napkins;

about 28 jars of sugar scrubs, hand/body creams, body butters, sorry no pictures of the body butter;

a skirt (this picture is before hemming and adding the waistband

a dress( for some reason I don't have a really good picture of the finished dress)

2 sets of Penn State Pajama bottoms and t-shirts from Joanns( I don't know why this picture is like this.  In my saved pictures it's actually right side up.  Oh well.

doggie collar covers

doggie cookies

a new hoodie for Jack(I copied this hoodie from one that I purchased for Jack a couple of years ago.

new scarf for Mr. D to match a hat I made him last year; and

a hat and scarf set for my mother.

 Her new coat isn't ready yet, but I cut the pattern pieces out and she's totally hands on with it and approved of the colors.  The pattern is McCall 6456.

Enjoy your evening.  I know I'm going to try to.  It back to work for me tomorrow.  So not looking forward to it, but at least it's a short week.  I'm heading back to the kitchen.  I've got to put my pie in the oven and make more body cream.  Next up, a few Christmas goodies I received.
