It was great to be able to do some sewing for Christmas. There is something about giving a homemade gift that is different from all other gift giving. I fret about size, color, and appropriateness much more than I do over a purchased gift. But I also have the recipient in mind on a different level--kind of a meditative "holding in prayer" type of feeling as I sew for them. Here are a few of the things I finished this year:

This is an apron for Jadyn, to be kept at my sister Arlene's house. They always bake together, so she needs her very own apron at Grandma's.

This vest is for Arlene. I have lost track of how many of these I have made over the years. I also made something else for Arlene's birthday on January 6th, but I can't post a picture of it until she opens it. :-)
One night while the kids were out I made a vest for Piper. This dog loves clothes. I also made the scarf for her while she was waiting for Katie to load the car.
Here are the tree skirts I started for Nate and Katie LAST Christmas, and finally finished in July. (I showed Nate his then put it back in the cupboard until he's a bit more settled. Katie used hers this year.)

I LOVE your tree skirts, Sue. The fringe is super cute- adds a kind of French flavor.

Very cool projects!
