Christmas through the Year!!!

Christmas Club

It's the end of the month and you know what that means!!!!  Time to post what we've made this month for Allie's fantastic idea-- "Christmas Through the Year". 

Thank goodness for Allie's post because I haven't been getting much time on the computer.  My mother was in the hospital for another 21 days and we got her home last week.  It's been BUSY BUSY for us.  Anyway, Mom is doing better and we will find out next week the date of her next surgery. 

But back to fun!  I only completed one project on my list for my contribution to Christmas, GIFT BAGS!!!  I love them and they were a big hit with the family this year so I am still using up my stash to make them.  Only got three done but three is better than none!
Thanks Allie for this great idea and keeping us motivated!  I'm loving it!!!!  Make sure to check out her site to see what everyone is doing for the holidays!!  We love the inspiration!

Mickie I love your bags - I love the fabrics you chose to go with the panels - just perfect! I'll post my gifts on the 31st - I still have a few on my January To Do list that I want to get done, LOL!

Home made gift bags are really special - I am sure these will go down a treat next Christmas.

These are cute. I bet it will be hard to put them away in the cupboard until the end of the year.

Those gift bags are really cute. Sorry about your mom, but glad she's out of the hospital. I know taking care of our moms can keep us busy, busy. Hugs, C.

Mickie they are gorgeous! Good for you! I'm sorry to hear that your mum will need more surgery, but glad that you got her home. I know it's been a stressful time for you. Big hugs to you, dear one!
