Today starts the first full week of December and I will call an official close to this list. With the exception of my younger daughter's wrapper, that will be finished and given as a Christmas present. We have attended our final event for the year and will now concentrate on Christmas gifts, leaving no time in the year 2012 to finish any other items above. All items marked with ** will begin the list for 2013..... and start the sewing frenzy all over again.
I sincerely hope that you got majority of your 2012 sewing list completed and can sit back and admire your accomplishments. Please do share your lists with me. I would love to see your work.
With all sincerity,
