But that means that through out the year I take pictures and file them away so that I can show them to you after the gifting is over
So here is the haul for 2016:
for several years I have done knit toys for the Christmas socks -- this year Mr Cute got BB8 and the son in law got Yoda
not that there was any lack of sewing machine work going on for all that knitting!
the Christmas Eve pjs for instance
the custom aprons for my mother and my sister
and a little something warm for the two "grand dogs"
now that Christmas is over I can reveal this piece too
this commission piece was done from agreement to delivery in less than 2 months
it is not a real big piece (measures about 11" by 15"), but along the way I had problems with my sewing machine and at one point I was not sure I would get it done in time
even with all that work and the two Christmas gatherings hosted at my house two weeks in a row, I have continued to work on this piece too --- the silos are just pinned down so I can be sure to fill in all of the grasses that are the base of this --- which means this piece will soon be heading to the sewing machine for quilting
which means I'm thinking about what the next pieces on the design wall will be
we'll see who gets to go first
