I’m not making a lot of Christmas gifts this year.  Two years ago I went a little (temporarily) insane and made ALL of our Christmas gifts, yes, ALL.  All I have to say to that is . . . . never again.

This year my handmade list is much more manageable, however I am behind.  I’ve been trying to get Connor and Gwyneth’s gifts done before they’re on break because I can easily work on the gifts for their cousins while they’re around.  Well, Gwyneth is officially done now.  Connor still has two more days of school.  I just finished up Connor’s yesterday.  Here it is.. . .

a fishing set!

The fishing set is made from felt using the Bugga Bugs pattern found here.  I made my fish plain (no eyes or other embellishments, however now that I’m looking a the photos, I’m rethinking it.  . . . We’ll see.)

The fishing pole really works and the fish all have NiB magnets in them and the hook too.

I really liked the look of the woven basket.

There was quite a bit of hand sewing and finishing, but I love how it turned out.

Just look at that catch!!  Must have been a great day at the fishing hole!
