i am a knitter!
Repeat after me, I am a knitter, I am a knitter.......... but sometimes I just feel the urge to SEW! I know I can do both, but I am just not that great at sewing. I can make the occational window treatment, Halloween costume, or jammies, but have me put in a sleeve? No Way... to scared of that! But every Christmas, I make the kids matching/coordinating Christmas pants. There is something about seeing them under the tree, all matchy, that makes me SEW happy! This year I also decided to make mommy and daddy (me and hubby) matching ones as well. I have always looked at the Hannah Anderson catalog and loved the matching Christmas families, and when I spotted this fabric at the fabric store, I knew I had to match too! I bought matching tops at Old Navy, but they didn't have the same ones in "grown up" sizes.
We will just have to do without, I mean, find something else. I am too excited to wake up on Christmas morning as one big matching goofy family!
