Miss J and I have been itching to do some crafting, so I've deemed it a handmade Christmas here at our farm. Mr. C and Baby C will also be crafting and Miss A may or may not craft handmade gifts. Her high school load has been pretty hefty and she doesn't have nearly as much time for the fun stuff as she used to have. She is currently up to her eyeballs in silk dupioni finishing a Shakespeare era gown for her final project in her Shakespeare class. I'll post pics when she finishes it. Right now, the pics wouldn't be much as she is sewing miles of boning into the bodice. So back to my original thought... I'll be adding handmade Christmas gifts, pictures, and links to instructions as we make them and maybe you will make a few handmade gifts for your Christmas as well. The first thing we are making is using a tutorial called, Hot Dog! It's a pillowcase. It is a super easy method for making a very neat pillow case. Join us tomorrow as we post pics of Miss J making her pair of pillowcases. And if you are family and happen to open up some pillowcases (or other crafty goodness), pretend you've never seen such craftiness before. ;-)
I am mama to 5 sweet and busy children ages 4-19. I currently am teaching 1, 7th, and 9th grades using Tapestry of Grace with swirls of Charlotte Mason elements throughout. When I'm not teaching, I'm chasing my 4 year old, or climbing Mount Washmore, or spending way too much time on Pinterest and not nearly enough time cleaning house or doing laundry.
