Well.....Christmas has come and gone again. I think the older I get, the faster it runs over me from behind! I mean....it IS the 25th of December EVERY year....it's not like the date changes! Try as I might, I seem to be less and less ready every year. This year, after dealing with catastrophe after catastrophe due to weather and vehicle problems, Susie and I found ourselves burning the midnight oil in the final days prior to Christmas eve to get presents ready in time. This baby jacket was for our newest Granddaughter , Liberty, who was born in November. The pattern was from Elizabeth Zimmerman and is called a "Baby Surprise Jacket". Susie used a baby yarn that I picked up locally (which is another story revolving around security being called because of how long I stood in the yarn isle!) Susie managed to get HER project done with time to spare...but I was still putting finish on MY project almost as the grand kids were walking in the back door! As soon as I can, I will post a picture of Lily's new butternut doll bed!
