This year everyone is getting something that was made by me! I didn't have the energy to go out and shop, only for the ladies of the family did I end up buying something the rest all got home-made gifts. This cold has taken so much out of me it's not even funny!
The gentlemen are all getting a silk scarf that was already planned from the fall because wool scarves seem to pill very easily with the beard rubbing against them so silk seemed to be a viable option and guess what; IT WORKS!!! I made a couple for my husband and he has been wearing one of them every day with great success no pilling whatsoever!
The children are getting some new clothes, no toys from nonna and nonno this year! I made a couple of jumpers for the oldest and the youngest girl and a cute girly skirt for the middle girl. The little grandson is getting a coat that I happen to come across through my daughter, so now all that's left to do is to add some tights and wrap the gifts!
