Super Late Holiday Crafts: Part 2

These holiday crafts were so late that they were completed in February.  But, they are done now and I'm lucky to have forgiving friends and a tolerant husband.

This is the popcorn and cranberry garland that took FOREVER, but it makes me so happy to see it strung on my mantle.  I might leave it up until March.

This is the hat for the family gift exchange for my cousin's girlfriend. Henry had my cousin for exchange, and that hat was completed (but never photographed) in time for Christmas, but Kim had to be patient. The pattern is the Cousteau hat with changes listed on my rav page.  (see how it matches my dining room?)

And, lastly, Tina was patient enough to wait for her linen and batik napkins. I knew I wanted to make her something from batiks, but I couldn't figure out what. Then she mentioned that she only has 2 or 3 cloth napkins. Problem solved. (By the way, I love the linen from and the shipping was super fast.)

I have some post-holiday crafting to show, too, but that will have to wait for another day.
Until then, does anyone else want to fess up to late homemade holiday gifts?

You rock!

I love the fact that you are leaving your garland up. If it makes you happy, than it should stay up as long as it can.

The hat is gorgeous, as are the napkins. Beautiful job
