Leaves of brown they fall to the ground…

Filed under: Holiday musings — Chantelle @ 9:35 am

My credit to Van Morrison 🙂 The title is from his song so aptly named, “Autumn Song.”

I think I’ve already talked some about my sentiments on the fall season … (checks back). Yes, I have.

But that’s okay, my topic today is actually Christmas.

For those of you who know me well… okay, and for those of you who don’t… most of you know that I am a crafter. As in, never not doing something. Actually more like never doing less than five projects.

As a result of all this crafty goodness, I can’t help but want to make homemade Christmas gifts for each and every person in the world. Of course, if I made gifts for each and every person in the world I would have to quit my job and drop out of school and likely have a nervous breakdown from still having too much to get done. 

But this is my list of Christmas gifts for this year – I have blanked out gifts for those who read this blog, and trust that they will not tell others who do not read the blog what their gifts will be.

Gilles – unknown as of yet. Might be homemade, might not.

Elsie – ######### #######

Nolan – Computer-key coasters

Michael – Beer hat

Kelsey – ###############

Memere – ‘Brag’ book

Grandma – Unknown at this point

Grandpa – Unknown at this point

Mom – #############

Lisa – Cross-stitch -if I have enough time

Joanne – Cross-stitch -if I have enough time

Brodeur Chinese gift exchange – immediate family: ###########

Brodeur Chinese gift exchange – Brodeur side: something storebought

Parent family gift exchange – Don’t know the recipient yet, recipient will determine gift

Bergen family gift exchange – Don’t know the recipient yet, recipient will determine gift

… Looks like I have a busy couple of months!

What am I working on now?

Currently I am finishing up the cross-stitch that I am working on for Lise. So far it is five months late. I’ll get it to her at the baptism. 😛 I’ll start on the Christmas gifts as soon as I finish (hopefully by the end of the week!)

I’ll post pictures of what items I can as I finish them. 😀

    • I’ll keep that in mind! I have started to sort the ties based on general colour, but I likely won’t have time to actually start making skirts until the new year now.

    • I know I don’t… but I want to. Neither of your gifts are very large or expensive though… but fun to make in both accounts! And in terms of me and Gilles… I’m not expecting anything in return, I just like giving gifts!
