Stocking Stuffers

Hopefully everyone had a great holiday with friends and family and traveled safely, got everything they wanted, ate too many cookies and are looking forward to the new year. We had a very nice Christmas and Santa does read my blog! ;-)

Aside from that fabulous gift, all our gifts were either home grown, hand made or purchased locally. It turned out not a bit hard and I encourage everyone to give that a try for the upcoming year. You've already seen the jars of honey and peach preserves. Here are some other handmade stocking stuffers.



Some handspun and hand knit mittens for my mother.



A Jacob wool hat for my dad. I did another one for my BIL, but forgot to take a picture.



A miniature horse blanket (table runner) woven for a friend.



This was spun from her guardian llama Andy. I had thought he was truly brown and white, but found out there was quite a bit of gray undertone - I always learn something, no matter what I do - yet another gift for me :-).

And the winner of the jar of Frog Pond honey is Tammy! Please send me an email with your mailing address.

Merry Christmas! (And remember, there's no reason why every day can't be Christmas.)

That little loom peeking into the picture... Is that actually a bead loom?

I'm so glad for you that you got a new video camera! How about a video of you spinning?

Merry Christmas, Sara. Congratulations on giving so many handmade items for gifts this year. I fell way short of my goal---oh well, there's always next year and maybe if I start right now......

You are so VERY talented! Thank you for sharing your gifts with us.

Also you are right, every day we can learn something new if we keep opening our lives up.

By the way, the post on the kitties was cute.

Congratulations to Tammy; you couldn't have picked a nicer person to win your special honey!

Oh my Gosh! You just made my day! I rarely 'win' things and that honey looked so good. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! :-) I'll email you my mailing address.
