So since money is tight this year, for everyone i am thinking of making my gifts for people. I want my gifts to be meaning full as they should be. I first thought i would give away some of Amelia's items like her books or a favorite pair of shoes or something along those lines but i couldn't do it. I sat and thought ok well for my mom i can make her a blanket,no a quilt. I am going to make a quilt out of Amelia's clothing, the ones that had a bit of meaning but nothing too serious that i felt i need to keep. Then after i decided about that i decided to make my niece and Lou's niece a blanket, and then my siblings i would make a pillow or something. I then came across fabric paper, i can print pictures out on fabric paper and sew them onto the blankets. So that is my mission for the next two weeks, blankets, pillows and a whole lot of sewing. I'm excited for these projects. They are going to keep my mind off of things, they are going to make me strong around the holiday. A time when i need to be. Do you think this is a good idea?
