I can’t believe it’s getting toward the end of the year, and Christmas, already! It’s time to make some Halloween and Christmas plans…
Last Christmas my family exchanged names, so it was a little different than usual – but much easier. I really enjoy finding perfect gifts for all my family, but some of my brothers can be a bit difficult to shop for. So besides a few small things for my awesome sister-in-law whose name I drew, my pet Christmas project was for my littlest nephew (on my husband’s side).
His mom decorated his nursery with tractors. I looked, and looked, and looked for some tractor afghan patterns, but to no avail. So, as is my custom, I made up my own. However, one thing led to another, and instead of just tractors I ended up adding farm animals, as well. And they were so cute! My favorite was the horse, and my hubby loved the pigs with the curly tails. I tried to put a lot of texture into it for baby-grabbing fun! I wanted to add fluffy clouds, too, but ran out of time.
It turned out pretty cute – if only I could remember all the details of how I did it!
