As many of you know from past years our family does a different letter of the alphabet every year for Christmas.
This year was the letter I.
I had drawn mom's name and I simply ran out of time. I debated about just buying a gift but that really isn't much fun.
I had to be very creative with my gift so I wouldn't look totally lame. :)
I spent a few days mulling it all over in my head and decided I wasn't going to stress myself out over a Christmas gift and it was JUST mom after all. ;)
I ended up giving her the capital letter "I" and on the back of it I wrote "owe you". Yep, mom got an I OWE YOU as her Christmas gift.
I had done this one other time when I was in high school. I bought flannel to make her p.j.'s and wrapped up the flannel and put it under the tree BUT never did make the p.j.'s. Ooops.
I was very determined not to let that happen again as mom has never let me forget that.
Here is mom's gift. I gave it to her this morning, wrapped and all.
Iggy is made totally from scraps.
I have made a few rugs lately using my leftovers and I keep waiting for the basket to get smaller but the worms just seem to be multiplying!!
I bought this pattern from Briarwood Folk Art awhile back and was waiting for the opportune time to put it to use.
It is meant just for scraps. I love that about the rug. Using up what you have and making it work……regardless.
Merry Christmas Mom. I no longer owe you. :)
