Good morning and happy Monday! I am scrambling to get finished with handmade gifts, finishing touches, holiday baking and scheduling my last couple of get togethers to exchange gifts. Also, I have to send a gift to California this year now that a dear friend has moved so I have to get that in the mail(note to self!). This is such a wonderful time of year but it is easy to feel a little hectic.
I have pictured above the two neck pillows I made for my co-workers. I love mine so much, I thought they would make awesome and practical gifts. I was able to make these with 2 fat quarters a piece and some matching ribbon and fiberfill. So far I have made four of them, all with quilter's cotton. I wonder if they would be better with home decorator weight fabric. I will have to make one and see. At any rate, they make reading in bed or watching tv on the couch so much more comfortable. The girls loved them.
I hope everyone has a great week. Today my grade level is throwing a "frost and decorate your own Christmas cookie" party. I hope my co-workers enjoy themselves and remember the days when that was an important part of Christmas. It signalled the beginning of the holiday for me when I was a kid. Take care. Nancy
