sewing gifts

 a birthday bucket for my friend ellen, 
stitched with a free tutorial by vermonter "film in the fridge" here.
(using robert kaufman's essex linen and a fat quarter of gifted calico). 
 needle cases for lindsey and gretta,
stitched with scraps.
(birch from ink and spindle, leftover from this project). 
 do you see little leftover bits from this project on 
the inside cover of the lower needle case?
 this little "tummy time" quilt went to maggie in brooklyn.
stitched with fabric i found at gather here in cambridge,
i used anna graham's pattern from her book handmade style.
it went together like a dream.
this morning, i mended the two pocket linings on a jacket
that hannah had brought with her to vermont.
she wore it in high school, and now she is 30.
#wearitwell #makeitlast #thrifty #buyquality #persist

our holiday gathering here at "a bit of earth"
was very small and quiet and snowy.
puzzles, baking, wood fired pizza,
love actually (of course) and good food and wine filled our days.

hope your days were merry and bright.
