    While looking for my kids Christmas stocking today I came across two boxes that I put away last Christmas. I was shocked to find 5 appliqued Christmas towels, 4 pillowcases, 3 aprons, 2 table runners, 1 candlel mat and 15 yo yo snowflake ornaments.

    I remember making them before I put Christmas stuff away lasy year, but then completely forgot about them.

    We don't exchange gfts on my Husbands side of the family, but I usually make a little something.

    I had decided I really did not have time this year. I guess now I do have something to give them. I just need to get motivated enough to wrap them. Maybe after Christmas Mass.

    Happy Holidays to everyone.

    WTG ... that is always an awesome feeling when you find things like that ... I am forever putting things somewhere and forgetting all about it and then they appear when in need the most. Merry Christmas to You!!!

    Speaking of yo-yo ornaments. I'm not a yo-yo fan at all, but years ago I found a wreath about 4" diameter made of small stuffed yo-yos and strung together through the middle of each and tied into a wreath shape with a bow at the top. It was made by a local crafts guild in NE TN mountains. I bought one for a pattern (well, more to remind me to make some later).

    This is another good way to use up those scraps, and the wreaths are really cute. I'll try to remember to get a photo/pattern/directions done and posted after the Christmas to-do settles down.

    And, I think I'll get a basket ready with the makings to put beside my chair again. These are the things I like to do while watching TV or while on trips--a quite portable project.
