Hand Made Presents

Hi guys
How was your Christmas? Since it was our first Christmas in a new province, it was quite different. On Christmas eve we went to a friends house and were there til 3am! I was so tired at that point that it took everything just to keep my eyes open and not fall asleep.
So on Christmas day we didn't get up and open our gifts til 12pm. Although this year was different, we still have the family together, unlike last year where my dad was away.
Like I promised in this post, I will now post what I made for my family this Christmas. Like I said before for my dad I made a small tote for his Bible. He was happy about that.

For my mom, I ended up making a small crossbody bag, with I pattern I designed by myself. It was confusing and hard but it was worth it when I saw my mother's smile. For her, I also knit her a headband for the cold. And the little blue wallet showed next to a bowl of cookies.
For my brother I knitted him a simple scarf, well not that simple for the scarf would not lay flat, it still rolls up. *sigh*
Turns out that I was the big gift giver this year for I gave the most things to other compared to most years. It wasn't a big trouble considering I had the time and material. There were moments of frustration and near tears but it was a well worth it just to see their smiles on their faces.
I will update as I am able to take pics of the projects.

*Brother's blue scarf not shown, nor the mail project, nor mom's headband.
*The flower/gray bag was the one I made for my dear mom.
Was there anything special you got this year? Did you hand make a gift? 
See you all in 2018!!
Feliz Año Nuevo

Thinking of Making a Logo

Allo!
One of the goals that I have is to make a logo for my blog. Hopefully, I will finish it by the end of December to mid-Jan. For those who do not know that title of the blog is a take on two things, I love sugar (sweets and baking) and plaid (tartan and sewing). So I will try my best to incorporate that into the logo. 
I am also thinking of changing the blog colour scheme I feel like it is too bold, no I mean strong and generic. 
What do you guys think? 
Til next time.

*For those that do not know I will be posting my travel bost on my other blog here. I have been (almost) all across Canada and will soon be posting the rest of my experiences.
