I wish I was finishing up V's jacket but I haven't had time to work on it recently :-(
I just haven't been able to find a large enough block of time to tackle the next step of padding and lapels. But, I have been finishing up all the rest of the holiday gifts.
This afternoon, V and I completed our holiday shopping. Except for some candy for stockings, I'm done, done, done with shopping. Why is it that as the children get older, the packages seem to get smaller and more expensive? ... and fewer this year, I think. But, we have managed to get what they asked for as well as a few surprises.
A couple of those surprises were what I was finishing up this afternoon. Since the children have all been getting into role playing games, we decided to get the boys each their own set of dice as a stocking stuffer. And, of course, if you have a set of dice, you need a dice bag. Any self-respecting gamer knows that. So, in seemingly no time at all (maybe half an hour tops) I whipped up a pair of drawstring bags.

Sometimes, the scrap box is a wonderful thing.
Some of the gift wrapping is done and I'll probably finish tomorrow. And I really hope for some quality time with V's jacket. With the shopping done I should have all afternoon to work on sewing since it's my day off.
It's hard to believe that Christmas is only a week away. The weather certainly doesn't help. It was 50 today and the grass is still green. Go figure.
