This year, I made Mark a “First Christmas” bird, just like I’ve made for many of his girl cousins and his little boy cousin too.

Nik is always cold (while I’m always hot) so I made him some mini-heating pads (filled with feed corn) for heating in the microwave. They’re about 3″ square.
cool story about the tartans – I traveled in England/Scotland/Ireland/Wales for two months in the fall of 1999 (after I graduated from college). While on that trip, I found remnant pieces of gorgeous wool tartan fabric. I’ve never done anything with it because most of it is only 3-4 inches wide. Finally, I found the perfect project for it! It’s wonderfully fine, soft wool, perfect for helping keep hands warm.
