Hand Made Christmas
Several months ago dear hubby and two grandsons, ages 7 and 5, decided to make the little girls in our family cradles for Christmas. Hubby has been teaching them wood working and our oldest daughter saw this cradle design in Pottery Barn so suggested it would be a good project. They thoroughly enjoyed the time together and the cradles are beautiful. I decided to make dolls beds and quilts for their dolls; somehow time got away from me and so this morning I sat down and got them done. The quilt fabric comes like that because I don't have the time right now to make doll quilts. In fact, due to my lack of time the sewing leaves something to be desired but I don't think two 3 yrs olds, two 1 yr olds and two infants will notice. It might have been a good idea to make each of the girls their own cradle but this way they are learning to share and take turns. I'm so thankful they are done and now all I have to think about it dear hubby's quilt. Since he's seen the fabric and choose an additional two fabrics it won't be a big surprise; that's o.k. cause I do have something up my sleeve. Enjoy our last hours of preparation-I plan to. Christmas Blessings from my home to yours.
