Christmas trucks/2016

a final look at Christmas

A last look at Christmas today.

These are two of the four pairs of pajamas I sewed for my daughter and her family this Christmas. They are taking a ski trip during spring break and I thought my little grandsons would get a kick out of everyone wearing matching pajamas.  Ask me if I would do it again.

“Rebecca, would you do it again?”

“No”, I reply.

They weren’t hard to sew or anything but the pattern I used for the adults was HUGE. I mean tent-size huge. I had to take in the side seams about eight inches. (Who creates these patterns?)  Even after they tried them on, I had to take in the side seams. If I ever do it again, I would find pj’s at Goodwill or garage sales for a dollar or so and use that as a pattern.

However, they were a big hit and I’m glad I made them.

Christmas PJ's/ 2016

This is my three-tiered tray I painted silver this fall and used as a hot chocolate beverage cart. As you can tell, I was into plaid. My husband bought me the thermos with an adorable plaid picnic carrier last year for Christmas. I found the plaid cups at Walmart for $.88.



All of my Christmas linens are vintage, like the one below. I really should have posted a picture of all of them. Maybe next year.

And now the last two Christmas “vignettes”.

So I’m quitting now. You might be getting tired of all the pics.

Anyway, God bless and as we end this year I pray that each of you would experience as many blessings as possible in this next year.
