Late Present

Due to having some situations to deal with in December, I didn't get my sister's Christmas present done. Well, it will have to be a New Year's present. I do love sewing and baking in the winter, well, hand-sewing anyway - working with the sewing machine usually ends up involving a lot of ripping out of stitches and/or putting in of gussets (not to mention what my nephew Michael used to call "squaring" when he was little). I'll show the end result when it's finished.

If they waited for me to 'make' their gifts no one would ever get one. ;)

I had a conversation with the Nice Young Man in the video store (since watching videos is a part of a long project like this). He said he stayed up all night before Christmas writng and illustrating a book for his nephew, and I informed him that nephews (probably neices too) were the only people who would always, always think you're cool. I know from experience.

I like the Renaissance´s air of it.

Renaissance and New Year are words that go very well together, aren't they?

Deb G said...

That is very intriguing! I've been known to wrap up things in progress and then take them back to finish. :)

ArtSparker said...

Cláudia- Nice to see you - Heh- I hadn't heard that, good point.

Deb - That's funny, like a preview of coming attractions.

I can hardly believe I used to sew my own clothes in high school. Of course, I didn't sew all of them, mostly empire scoop necks or shifts or an occasional long sleek gown with just a couple of darts. I am the worst at sewing. I only hand sew buttons now although a friend of mine just gifted me with a beginning quilt pkg and I'm thinking about tackling that.
