Getting in the Christmas spirit

So today I officially started my sewing for Christmas pressies LOL Imade Andy a pair of PJ shorts ala Peter Alexander in a shark fabric ~ they just elastic and a drawstring. I've got quite a bit to do so best write myself a list of what needs to be done;

Mum ~best not sew for her, she is the bees knees when it comes to anything crafty ~ Last year I wrapped all her pressies in quilting material that was cool, she liked that. Still have noo idea what to get her this year.

FIL ~ Apron with Lily's footprints on it and written on it MY GRANDAUGHTER WALKS ALL OVER ME!

MIL ~ Dunno, maybe some PJ pants and I could applique a matching tee??? some cross stitched christmas decorations , i saw something groovy done with teabags, she likes tea, now where was that??????

Tim ~ BIL I got in the KK hmm, might have to ask Michelle. I'd like to make him something too; maybe some PJs (everyone is getting PJs I think lol) ; if I had enough time I'd knit him a beanie too as he lives in Ballarat BRRRR!!! Maybe I could do some nice bits on some towels ????

David ~ Got him in our KK he wants a tool ~ I won't be making that lol

Kidlet list

Josh and Brady ~ camping chairs with Megsie

Lauren ~ PJs lol

Zoe ~ baby doll dress or a denim skirt to match the tee Megsie is doing her

Tahlia ~ best get the same

Nikayla ~ singlets and tees/ pinnie??

Sean and Nathan ~ thought about macraming some leather wristbands/necklaces, maybe PJs too lol ~ what can you make 8 and 10 yearold boys that have EVERYTHING ????

Demi ~ peasant skirt

Tully and Asher ~ hmm, Megsie lurks here so best not say she might tell them LOL

Abby and William ~ appliqued Santa bags like the one I did Lily last year but machine appliqued

This is the bag I did Lily last year; we use it all year round to hold her pjs as it's not too Christmassy :D
