Christmas Projects

So I have a few Christmas crochet projects before Friday gets here.  Hopefully I can pull it off and the receivers will be thrilled with them.  I have already done one Christmas hat, and all I need to get is the button for it.  I will post pictures of it later, I am so happy with it and sort of wish I could keep it.  But it doesn't look nearly as amazing on me as the person it was intended for.  She has already tried it on because I was worried it wouldn't fit.   The one project I am nervous about is intended for my little brother.  He is at a difficult stage or at least difficult for me.  Its rather funny that although I have just come out of my teenage years I don't really know how to handle him.  But then again boys have always been difficult for me to get presents for, I just hope that the hat suits his style and looks manly enough.  I know its not going to be girly but its not turning out like I planed.  The yarn is making it look like a camouflage, and I don't know if he digs that or not.

Then I have a head band/cowl I need to design for my mom.  That shouldn't be to hard, (I hope).  I just hope everyone likes their gifts.  And I know its better to give then receive but I am looking forward to opening a few myself.  ; )

The winter solstice eclipse was pretty amazing.  So glad that I took the time to go outside and watch it.  Winter is here but spring isn't very far behind.  I love all seasons so I can't really pick a favorite.  I had an amazing night with my mom and we went and got coffee together.  I don't get to see her too often so its nice when we get to hangout.

Though its not quite time for new years resolutions.  I am going to bring it up anyways.  I want to be a better sister then I have been in the past.  My brother and I are not very close to one another.  A lot of that is my fault because when he wanted to hang out when he was younger I pushed him away because he was young and I was a teen having fun with my friends.   I guess I just want to be a cool older sister and make a good difference in his life, but I worry it might be to late for that.

Anyways I hope everyone has an amazing holiday, and gets all their crafting, and shopping done before the big day.

    PS It is never too late. Call up your brother and go to Starbucks or a movie or something. He will love it.
