I've made my list and checked it twice. My gift of the year is here!
Spoiler alert: If you are on my gift list, don’t read any more! I’m trying to keep it a surprise.
It’s only a few days before Christmas and I am finished making my gifts. No all nighters. No “IOUs.” I can’t believe it.
I always choose a project for the gift of the year. Last year was mini wallets and key fobs. This year it is oven mitts. I loved selecting the fabric for the receiver. I chose horse fabric for my friend, Edna. Cat fabric for my pet sitter, Jo and my friend, Lonnie (even though she doesn’t cook). A music motif for my nephew, and a guitar fabric for Davey and family. I also made a few generic versions for hostess gifts. The oven mitt is just a little something-something to say “Cheers!”
The pattern I used is actually part of a new pattern I designed. It is going to be on the website the first of the year. I am offering it as a preview for my downloadable patterns that will be available soon thereafter. Many of you have never tried a downloadable pattern, so here’s the chance to see what they are all about. I love the idea since I am an instant gratification kinda girl. I see it. I want it. Now I can have it immediately.
Well, off to wrapping! Ya gotta love it.
