We buy presents for about 20 people ( multiple ones for kids,partners and grandkids ). We send 50 cards....made a good start today. OH won't shop online and likes to take an active part in present shopping. He does all the wrapping, I do cards and tags

Finally managed to book our boosters at the hospital 15miles away. 16th December. I'm 74 with health issues and hadn't heard a thing  :rolleyes: anyway it's booked now  :thumb:
Had a big storm in the night apparently and there's a thin covering of snow.
Sewing day today  :sew:

When I started on the Darkside I was not very accurate. I don't have a straight eye, had never sewn before and thought that it wouldn't matter if, as a beginner, things weren't matched up perfectly.
I was soon proved wrong and brought up short  :embarrassed: well meaning criticism I'm sure but it set me back and for years I was never happy with what I had made   ><
I'm sure you won't suffer in a similar way but just relax and enjoy the process. A lot of small flaws can be disguised with quilting... ;)
Your work is lovely  :loveit:

Well done @Acorn  however...I retired at 55; 19 years ago. I still miss work and still find time drags and hangs heavy . Not all the time but quite frequently
