This present probably took the longest because it is completely hand sewn. I also had to come up with ideas for most of the pages because I couldn’t find any on the internet that I liked. So, even though this was on of the first that I started, it was one of the last to be finished. But I’m very pleased with it, so here it is.
Do y’all ever read Winnie the Pooh? If you have, maybe you know what that thing that says ‘trespassers w’ is for, but if not then I will tell you (some of my siblings asked me what it was for even though they have all read the book at some point, oh well)
“THE PIGLET lived in a very grand house in the middle of a beech-tree, and the beech-tree was in the middle of the forest, and the Piglet lived in the middle of the house. Next to his house was a piece of broken board which had: “TRESPASSERS W” on it. When Christopher Robin asked the Piglet what it meant, he said it was his grandfather’s name, and had been in the family for a long time. Christopher Robin said you couldn’t be called Trespassers W, and Piglet said yes, you could, because his grandfather was, and it was short for Trespassers Will, which was short for Trespassers William. And his grandfather had had two names in case he lost one—Trespassers after an uncle, and William after Trespassers.”
“I’ve got two names,” said Christopher Robin carelessly.
“Well, there you are, that proves it,” said Piglet.”

So that was James Christmas present. I’ll be posting again soon hopefully. Happy new year!
