I've often made xmas presents for my nieces, putting together braclets and necklaces are easy to do, but I have also made them skirts, headbands and of course shrugs..... my nephews in the past have been a little bit more awkward, but I have a few ideas this year, just got too see if it works first!
What do you make for xmas?

My 7 yr old will be Yr 3 next year and will be make or break time for her acedemically as the jump from junior school to middle school is hard enough most kids but when you've got an intellectual disability it makes things so much harder, not that you will hear her complain she has lots of freinds so she doesn't worry about anything else! She is also very easy to buy for...... funky t-shirts and anything to do with horses and she is happy!
My 5 yr old well she is proving harder to buy for this year....... so I'll need to really get my thinking cap on, what do you get a fashion diva, brainiac and all round drama queen (ok she's no worse than many 5yr olds but still!!) oh and has to be cheap cheap! So far I've got cheap bracelets and hair ties......and she has plenty of dressup stuff....... must keep thinking!!

On the Business front I have been busy making birthday presents, some new knitted items including bolero type shrugs and vests - which just need to be sewn up and photographed, and also I have been making another gift as Fairy Godmother -this time for my sons Teacher Aide. In addition to this I have also been listing Xmas Dress' for sale, so far in size 4 and size 1 with many more waiting to get to the sewing machine. I have also been doing a custom order for a friend for a NB and a size 3 xmas dress which are almost completed!
I am not doing any competitions this month, but are offering Custom Ordered Xmas Dress'/Waistcoats etc for Facebook Fans Only and I'm happy to post overseas.......so get in quick as I only have a limited supply of fabric at the moment (though I don't mind an excuse to visit spotlight to find more!!)
If anyone local to Mt Maunganui would be interested in having a stall or contributing to our Gala Day in another way please feel free to contact me. At this stage I'm just after interest so that I can put it forward as an Idea at the meeting next Wed. Our school has a very big junior school and many of these kids are the eldest in the family rather than the youngest, plus we seem to be having a bit of a baby boom too!
