December 19th. Christmas week, with at least three projects to finish before the big day.
Doing one bag for a friend, which I don't think is a Christmas gift. I just promised it for today. Then something for a relative, and my own Christmas present, which I'm making.
Making things for others, especially at Christmas time, seems so right. We aren't just tossing a few extra dollars at someone, we're giving it our full effort. Putting our time into something says a lot more.
