Rising Under Pressure

The countdown to Christmas is on, and the relative panic of not getting everything made in time has just arrived. So Sunday was Christmas gift day.

For my Grandmother, who once gave me a set of hand-embroidered pillowcases,

Granted, machine embroidery isn't exactly a fair exchange, but in the interests of time and her ever receiving them, they will have to do. Even with the machine, this is the second attempt--the first one had a few "user error" issues and are now buried in our linen closet.

Two sets of Christmas napkins were finished:

Okay, that's one set, but the other looks EXACTLY the same so we'll pretend it shows both.

And a fleece baby blanket for a cousin's new son born just a couple weeks ago.

15 days & 2 gifts to go!!!!!!!!
