|2009 Our First Christmas Together|
I didn't hit that mark, not by a long shot, but what I've discovered is that despite the best laid plans for the holiday, I sew until I run out of time on Christmas Eve. I finished one pair of the frilly pj pants for each girl, a dress for each of the two younger girls, and a skirt for the oldest. We've decided that the jammies need just a little more frill, so we're adjusting appropriately by adding ruffles on the rear later this week and I'm adding a lovely matching frilly top that I just didn't have time to make before the holiday.
Our youngest said that the best presents are the late ones, because she forgets they were even coming, so they’re twice the surprise (big points to the gracious 14 year old). They're spending the rest of their winter break with their mother, so I won't be able to get photos of them in their new handmade gifts for at least another week and a half, but as soon as I have them, I'll be posting about each.
All of the projects I didn't get finished before the holiday are on my to-do list for the next 10 days, so there should be a huge jump in the number of pajamas and dresses at our house. Then, it's back to selfish sewing for a little while. (Yes!)
