Some photo highlights of the festivities at the Suburban Prairie Home:
Goodies goodies and more goodies:
Hubby is 6"1" and hates the fact that there are never afghans that will cover him completely. Princess made this one for him. This photo is from when she laid out the squares the other day to start stitching them together. It is now neatly sewn together and has a pretty orange border.
Speaking of Princess...
She just rearranged her room recently. It now has more open floor space - which is good for someone who does projects like afghans. She also likes doing photography, and frequently shows her photos in our county fair. When she did her re-do this year, she put all her winning photos in black frames, and made a photo wall. Several years ago, we repainted her room a very bright yellow. Like you can see it from space yellow. You can imagine how "graphic" the black frames look on this wall. Just wear your mental sunglasses - like I said, the yellow is very bright.
So this year, after seeing all the wonderful ways that other craft bloggers were using fabric to create fabulous design elements, I decided to make something for Princess' room. I'll post the how-to soon.
Now don't worry, I didn't forget Bubba! He and his friends are really into animated characters these days. In fact, he recently picked out an earflap hat for himself that's Cookie Monster. And his friends all have those earflap hats with other characters as well. So, when I've had some free time lately (as in free from kidlets, particularly Bubba), I've been working on this:
No homemade gift for Hubby this year. Although, I'm sure he'll say he was happy having an amazing Christmas dinner that was safe for all of us to eat, and the fact that our family was together, and everyone had a really good time.
After all, isn't that the best part of Christmas?!
