Each year with good intentions, I make a list of handmade gifts that
I plan on finishing in time to put under the tree on Christmas morning. Last Christmas found me closer to finishing my gifts than I have been in the past and when Christmas morning arrived all that was left to finish was one sock. On New Year's Day I made a promise to myself that on July 1st I would lay aside whatever quilt or stitching I was working on and begin working on Christmas gifts. Today the calendar reads July 5th....promise kept.
