Baby Shower Blues

So I turned up today at my mother-in-law's for my sister-in-laws baby shower, gifts in hand. One of which was this quilt that I was frantically finishing until 1am this morning.... and I was a day late.

I don't know what was going on with my brain, all week I've been thinking that the shower was on Sunday etc etc. So anyway, I dropped in on Liz and James and had a cup of tea.

The book, by Nikki McClure was the inspiration for the colour palette.

Wholly Handmade Christmas

I've toyed with the idea of a Wholly Handmade Christmas before, and always given up on the idea, citing not enough time as the main reason. Whilst I am as busy as ever, I'm beginning to think more and more about the type of gifts I like to give. I spend a lot of time making handmade gifts for people I've never met, and whilst I enjoy swapping I think it is time to spend some crafting energy on gifts for loved ones.

So embarking on the Wholly Handmade Christmas Adventure, I have approximately 20 or so gifts to think about and make. I'm starting early enough (I think) for this not to be a problem.

If anyone else is up for the challenge, I'd love to hear from you!
