|I made this wall hanging for our family a couple of years ago. Pattern by Under the Garden Moon.|
Christmas is so special... and it will be very relaxing in my home as all our relatives are far away, so it is just us and my two boys [the older son is not coming for Christmas so I won't get to run after my grandson! :-( ] Still, I am not ready...
Christmas gifts to Brazil. Check. Christmas gifts for son and his family. Check. Christmas gifts for my husband and sons? For my friends? Ai ai ai... If you are in the same boat as I am, here are some ideas for you as I do some brainstorming about my own missing gifts! I am thinking of friends today.

Pat Sloan's Teach Me to Sew Triangles book is perfect for any skill level. It is filled with detailed pictures and diagrams to ensure your work is accurate. Pat teaches 13 techniques to sew triangles, gives us lots of tips, then we get a chance to use them as we make her beautiful designs. I am loving the Triangle Tricks Cheat Sheet as it takes the guesswork out of cutting triangles for any project. Plus, Martingale publishes an eBook version of their books - easy is what I like at this time of the year!
Speaking of triangles, how about making these Christmas ornaments? They are by Amy Smart from Diary of a Quilter. So cute with an easy to follow tutorial. I love them!
Next I am thinking about these adorable pincushions. They are so cute and functional. You can find Deonn Stott's tutorial here. You can also turn them into ornaments!

Now it is time for me to work on some of these gifts. Enjoy your week!
