first of the Christmas presents done

Older Grandson loves books.

Older Grandson thinks it's fun to count.

Older Grandson's grandmother likes to sew.

Combine the three and you get a hand-made, cloth, pirate-themed counting book!

Are you making gifts for Christmas?


  1. What a fabulous idea. It looks great.

  2. What fun! Great Christmas gift. I'm hoping to make 5 quilts for Christmas gifts. One done and 4 more to do!

  3. I'm trying - but not for everyone. Just a few...

  4. Hi Lynne, good choice. You cant go wrong with pirates. I am just about to start knitting my first pair of socks for my husband for Christmas, so hopefully they will turn out alright. Have you knit any socks? Any advice would be appreciated, Thanks.

  5. Just perfect! Yes, I make Christmas gifts and start now! (And not too many so I don't get pressured!)

  6. I'm working onholiday quilts for my brothers.

  7. So cute! I love the idea of using panels! I realllly need to start more gifts, I'm going to fall behind!

  8. I intend to make some for little miss's teachers, just not sure what yet.
