My mom loves Christmas. She has over 2 dozen large rubbermaid totes filled with Christmas decorations and ornaments (not including large lawn decorations).
She also loves doing ‘grandma activities’ with the kids at Christmas time. Some years it’s gingerbread houses, or gingerbread trees. This year it’s candy trains. She starts buying candies at the after Christmas sales the year before (only the hard candies usually), and then buys the chocolate stuff in November. They turned out pretty cute.
For her gift this year, I made a quilt. It is far from perfect but, it’s the first large quilt I have ever actually finished (I’ve done a couple baby quilts). I am lucky to have a friend with a long arm quilting machine who did all the quilt work in time (don’t worry I paid her for her time). I think it turned out pretty good, if you aren’t a perfectionist. Now my mom has a Christmas Quilt to go along with all her other decorations.
And it’s not a craft, but my mother, me and my daughter all performed at a Nativity Festival nearby. It’s so neat to see all the different Nativity sets from around the world.
