Week Two (Meg)

So there's not been much progress so far in my Christmas makings.  Last week I didn't even do an update as I had done nothing! I have done a little bit since then though but nothing inspiring I'm sure.  I'm enjoying seeing all of your great Christmas things.  It's definitely encouraging me to get a move on.

Today I bought fabric and interfacing for my bike baskets... hopefully I'll have cut them out by next week!

I've made and printed gift labels (some personalised, some generic).

I'm working on a booklet to accompany these play cloths (dyed muslin) for my 3 year old niece.  It will have photos of my boys using theirs so that it might give her some ideas.  If you haven't used play cloths or don't know what I'm talking about check out my blog post (click this link).  They are awesome.

 My cute tile photo coasters have become wooden ones.  No progress so far.

So this week my plans are to:
  • complete and print out play cloth booklet
  • cut out bike basket pieces
  • choose photos for the coasters
  • decide what baby gift to make for the teacher who is leaving on maternity leave
  • take a Christmas photo of the kids for cards/emails


  1. Great to see you have started the Christmas Challenge. Love the idea of the muslin play cloths and especially like the little striped suitcase.

  2. I also love the idea of muslin play cloths - great for the imagination. You have gotten further than I have this week :)

  3. It's difficult finding time for everything isn't it? I have struggled a bit this week, but definitely having to account for myself here has helped. Your labels are a good idea - hope you have a good week!

  4. Definately some progress made. I love those labels, will you cut them all out by hand?
    And I cant wait to see your coasters.

  5. The playcloths are such a good idea for kids' gifts. And I love your stickers!!!
