I guess with a busy end of term at work, silk slip project for Britex, Christmas rush and all the various school-related pre-Christmas activities, there just wasn’t time for a bunch of sewing for gifts. I even opted to purchase pajamas for my boys (despite having bought fabric to make some) when it got to the eleventh hour and I still had a party and a dinner at my home to prepare for. From the kids’ perspective, I’m sure a sane mom is preferable to mom-made PJs!
Since we didn’t fly home to NY for the holiday, my sis sent along a photo of her with the gifts, along with a note that said she loved them. Since I could only chose one person to get a made-by-me present, I’m glad she was the one!
Did you get as much holiday sewing done as you wanted to? As a sewist, do you feel an obligation to make gifts?
