A Handmade Christmas

Wow, the holidays are here! It's been a little crazy with school approaching so soon (Jan. 10th), and waiting for all my housing information to get, not to mention Christmas! There are so many wonderful things to come for Quail Stitch, don't give up on me just yet!! Thanks for all the readers & comments, this blog for me is something I really love...a very very early beginning to my dreams. We've had a lot of views in a short amount of time that we've been up, and I really appreciate it!

Once Christmas is over we should be back in full swing :)

i love our house during Christmas!

& of course what are the holidays without wrapping presents for loved ones. I enjoy it so much, here are just a couple of the ones I'm excited to give away! I like to keep it simple & pretty. I wrapped most of my packages in none other than packaging paper from a store where my mom bought some frames. Then just simply tied yarn from my own yarn basket. Love it! It makes me feel like something straight out of another time & someone delivered these to my doorstep :)

& now for some handmade gift  goodness!! 

We're originally as a family from Southern California, we were all born there, and I was raised there until I was seven. The majority of ALL of our family (mom & dad's side) still live there, and near Christmas it can be hard to be away from family that we're so close to. 
My grandmother on my dad's side is incredibly crafty (maybe I get my love of crafts from her!). She works with yarn companies to create lovely little patterns for kid's toys, apparel, etc. Every year she sends the kids of the family handmade gifts. My siblings and I always got sweaters, and now that we've outgrown the gifts, she sends my little nephews and niece all kinds of creations. Here are some below. There's really nothing like gifts like these that will last a lifetime. 
She puts little tags with each name on them, it's a sweet little touch.

I love this knit little stocking for my nephew Oliver. Amazing!

& this knit red robot for Oliver as well. 

This is a sweet little sweater for my niece Ani. 

& a little star blanket for the youngest nephew Dash

Until next time 
Happy Holidays,

Quail Stitch
