Christmasy Placemats & Napkins

Awhile back Sew, Mama, Sew had a placemat and napkin sew-along. I decided to make these for my mom for her birthday. She decorates the house in blues and silver for Christmas, but I threw in the green to tie together the one print with with green in it. She really likes these placemats. Although I don't think she'll ever use the napkins. I really like how these turned out and now have placemats on my ever growing list of things to make for our house.

When I was a kid we opened one gift on Christmas Eve after church and we are carrying on that tradition with our kids. Every Christmas Eve after church we go to one of my husband's sister's houses and have a bite to eat. After eating each child gets to open one gift. For the past 4 years or so I've made something for my kids Christmas Eve gift. Right now I'm working on those Christmas Eve gifts. I'm not sure how much longer this will last as it's getting harder every year to come up with something for the boys.
