This year, we decided to jump on the gingerbread house bandwagon. I grew up with a pretty minimal Christmas celebration given that my parents grew up in India and didn't celebrate Christmas themselves. But, how could I resist this gingerbread house kit from Trader Joe's. For $7.99, it's pretty great. Next year I might have to make my own and start a new tradition.
Another tradition in our family is attending the local ballet company's performance of the Nutcracker. I make a new dress for my daughter each year. She really liked the style of last year's dress, so this year's is the same in different colors.
I don't often do a rolled hem on my serger since it requires changing a plate and removing a needle. But, since I teach about rolled hems and lettuce edging in my serger class, I thought it's about time I do it on my own machine. It came out really pretty and is easier than doing a regular hem.
Another holiday tradition complete.
