Dear Aunt Aida

My aunt Aida has always been one of my biggest crafty supporters. She's commissioned me to make something for her at Christmas-time ever since I was a little kid. We're talking like 10-11 years old til now.

She has saved everything I've made and still uses them! Its really funny to go to her house on Christmas Eve and see all of the plastic canvas ornaments and tissue holders I was so fond of.

This year wasn't any different. Aida sent me an email telling me she wanted me to make headwarmers and coffee cozies for each of her three girls. I can never say no to her!

I made three of the St. Maurus headwarmers in charcoal gray. Pattern is on my sidebar.

Added chunky black buttons from my stash to finish them off.

I also made three coffee cozies in tan and brown. No pattern used....just made them large enough to fit a disposable coffee cup.

My inspiration and desire to do anything crafty has been pretty low the last 2 weeks or so. I haven't even touched that advent calendar since Thanksgiving. These projects were small enough and just fast enough to get me going again, I think. I sure hope so...I want to finish a cardigan for Dirty Grandma for Christmas.
*crossing my fingers*
