christmas shopping & making

Do you have this problem? I'm making and shopping for Christmas, and trying to stick to a tight budget, and then I find super cute things that I want, like this pincushion/spool, from this etsy shop:


Or this hat, for which I have a single skein of yarn that might just be perfect:


I don't have time for this nonsense! 


  1. I know how you feel! I have made 3 sets of Raggedy Anne and Andy and now it is on to aprons. I think I have spent all the big bucks that I am going to this year. Spending money doesn’t take near the time that making a gift does!!

  2. Yes and yes! You do actually need that pincushion, I think.

  3. Ooooh. I really like both of the hats in the picture. See the slouchy brown one in the background?!

  4. I know! They’re both so great, and they’re both included in the pattern. I particularly like the lacy edging.

  5. You cracked me up when you said you didn’t have time for this nonsense! LOL…..I know I know….I need to focus on gifts, and I’m busy doing other things for ‘me’.
    Where did you get that hat pattern? Me want.

say something nice...
