At Christmas, I can count on exchanging gifts. eating a major feast, and having fun with friends and family.
My Threadville friends and I have realized that, although we love giving and receiving gifts, some of us are running out of space to keep things.
Just for fun, we instituted a new rule this year--we have to make the gifts, and no one gift can be bigger than a Christmas stocking.
Here are some of my ideas:
1. Home-made jam
2. Embroidered (monogrammed?) bookmarks
4. Embroidered coasters
5. Hand-knit socks
6. Hand-knit mittens
7. Jar of homemade pickles
8. Rum balls
9. Gingerbread men
Do you have other suggestions of things I might be able to make?
Do you have ideas for cutting down on the proliferation of gifts at Christmas and/or other times of year?
