This Christmas I only made one homemade gift: a pillowcase for my youngest son. I used this tutorial and fabrics I already had on hand. I had to brush up on my rusty embroidery skills to do his name. There is a new pillow inside the case, too. (Both the pillow and pillowcase were on his Christmas wish list:)
My daughter, on the other hand, gave EVERYONE in our family something.
Lovely wrist warmers for me (directions are here). I can attest that you can wear these and still crochet or write, and for some reason it is often my wrists that are cold, so these really work.

I look forward to sharing what we make this year, and I look forward to being inspired by all of you fellow crafters out there -- we love to see what you are doing, too!
