I came across this cute little shop
The lady was so friendly and explained to us all about her weaving business.
So interesting as many years ago we did this weaving my sister in law Joyce and I. We had the guys make us frames and we patiently weaved and tied our wool. We made lots of baby blankets. Now this new concept is so much better and Sue teaches how to do it. Here is s link to her business.
Raindeer suckers and ugly sweaters they have a little slit in the back for a gift card or money. They all made on the embroidery machine in the hoop. I used felt.
Only October and I am ready for Christmas. We have two new additions this year with Luke born in January our first Great Grandchild baby to Kayleigh. Ariel born 28 July is our youngest Grandchild. So had to add their placemats and bells.
Every year we hang the bells on the tree before lunch oldest to youngest
I give each grandchild a Christmas decoration. This year we decided on a photo. I have added two photos to each ball.
We also give out suckers to the family member that has made us laugh with their amusing things they have done during the year. A few members get the suckers regularly… just saying … not mentioning any names. 😳
So with the familygrowing 17 this year. I have to be organized as summer is a busy time and I would rather be stand up paddle boarding than sitting inside. Do you have traditions ? They make our Christmas so much fun and full the room with laughter.
I have been making and embroidering some bags for Foster Hope NZ. Hope they bring some joy to the children this Christmas,
