A belated Happy Christmas

Life has been extremely hectic over the last few weeks, preparing for Christmas, so I never got here to wish you all a Happy Christmas. I do hope you all had a wonderful, healthy and peaceful time.

We had a very extended Christmas this year, spending Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with my SIL, then rushing home to prepare to welcome our sons and their partners for the next few days. They finally left yesterday after a wonderful family time together. It's all too rare that we all manage to get together like that.

Here are a few pictures.

 This is an iPad cover I made for my younger son's partner

This is a cafetiere cosy that I made for my older son and his partner

This is an iPad mini case that I made for my younger son. Sadly I didn't have an iPad mini to work with and it didn't turn out too brilliantly.

These are some earbud cases that I made, one for each of us.

Ruby entered into the spirit of Christmas.

But it was all too much for her - and for a few other people!

Adorable pictures of Ruby.
You were busy, making so many terrific things. What a clever idea the ear buds cases.

I love all your photos, Amanda but the one of Ruby and Christopher is my favorite. You do give the BEST presents.

It looks like you had a wonderful Christmas with the family. And look at Ruby. She knows how to steel everyone's heart and make people take a time out.
Gelukkig nieuwjaar!

Ruby looks very content! Good for you for making so many handmade Christmas presents.

I missed this one too, I don't know how, I always watch for your posts. I must have been in a daze. I also didn't open mail for awhile with all Ernie's woes, and didn't realize until late that we had received a Christmas card. Thank you so much, it is so fun to get mail from overseas and especially from you and your husband. I didn't get to Christmas cards this year. I think that I quilted my brains out literally. I love your projects and I'm sure that your family did too.
