Tomorrow's class is the holiday jumper. Remember this . . . ?
One side. I love that giant rick-rack!
I love how this jacket turned out. It's made from the Children's Corner pattern "Robin's Little Jacket". What a great gender-neutral pattern and it's like a blank canvas to come up with some fun, creative ideas for kid designs. At our house, we like firemen. Wonder why? (It's all about my VFD husband.)
Can't tell from the photo, but that dalmation puppy is made of ultra soft plush. Pet the puppy!
(Can you tell the buttonholes aren't finished? Argh. That's the one thing I didn't get finished.)
So . . . it's way past my bedtime, the only reason I'm up so late is we just returned from our second Christmas party of the weekend. Tis the season and all. This party was for the bank where I used to work. One of my favorite co-workers, a branch manager from another facility, is preparing to move back "home" to a neighboring state. Don't tell him, but I'd been secretly praying their house wouldn't sell so that they wouldn't leave but the time has finally come. His wife is already there and working, he is simply wrapping up loose ends to join her soon. I tried but didn't make it through without a few tears. We shared some laughs and memories too though, and promises to keep in touch. I know it's a good thing for them and I wish them well in their new home . . . but I still wish they weren't going.
I better sign off now, try to calm my nerves and get some sleep. I'm going to need it tomorrow!
