My Christmas Make-its

So, for Christmas this year, I made (sewed) 9 presents.

The first was a pillow for Mark's Mom. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture.

The second was 7 owls, each one of different fabric, for Chloe, Kara, Ava, Emma, Aayla, Kyson and my sister Alie. Here's a photo of all 7:

And these are the ones for Kara (on the left) and Chloe:

The last thing I made was a semi-joke gift for Mark, because he loves candy corn so much:

Lots of work went into these projects, but I am super pleased with how they turned out. I'm taking a break from sewing for a week or two, then I'm going to try making myself a new purse.

I think Kara heard our friend Aayla saying "uh-oh spaghetti-o's".

She in turn changed it to "Uh-oh, forgety-o's!" So cute coming from a 2 year old.
