|A scene from my glamorous business travel|
Since work has been so crazy, I've taken the pressure off myself at home by buying most of my holiday gifts. I'm still finishing up a quilted bag for my sister-in-law, Diane, but I won't see her until early January, so I have a little time dividend. I had great intentions of making a hand-made gift for each of my girlfriends, but there's always next year. Maybe if I get started in January, I'll be ready for the holidays in 2014.
Marion, Joannie, and Sue have been hanging out with me in The Studio as they put the finishing touches on some holiday gifts.
|Sue, at right, knit these adorable Mickey Mouse sweaters for Joannie's |
grand-daughter, Hayden, and new grand-baby on the way. Aren't they adorable?
I asked her if she could make a dog version for Romeo, Elvis and LarryPug.
|I made bacon and BMX bike-racing pillowcases for my nephews. |
Last weekend, I finished seven pillowcases. I have 15 more in progress.

My friend Cindy emailed me the photo below with "Awesome" as her subject line. I'm thrilled that she liked her birthday pillowcases so much.
|Cindy is getting a few more dog pillowcases for Christmas. |
She has six pillows on her bed, and only three of them have
"made by Nancy" pillowcases on them.
Pugs and kisses,
