 Except for the five of us, we make all of our gifts.  This year they include: wreaths, ornaments, some wood working, homemade spices, ribbon wands and pillowcases.  My kids are also making gifts.  Travis is making some stop-motion videos for his grandparents. Emily is recording some songs, and Lindsay is painting some pictures.

Yes these are tatting. It is a million times easier to do needle tatting than crochet or knit, because no matter the design it is just a combination of rings and chains - no treble, hdc, etc. Just circle or arch. I actually learned needle tatting through YouTube! Shuttle tatting is beyond my little brain, but needle is super easy and fast. I do the ornaments in under an hour.

Very cool. I'll have to YouTube it. I always thought tatting had to be hard from the looks of it. That seems like a great way to spend the evening when watching tv.
