Merry Christmas, J!

So....I decided this year to give each kid 5 gifts, one from each of 5 categories. One of these was "something homemade." Life happened in December. I got sick. I spoke in church. I had a dear friend in the hospital. The "something homemade"s didn't get all done. I finished A's and K's, but not J's and C's.
Yesterday and today I worked hard to finish J's. It is a reversible cape. I found a tutorial online and knew he would love it. The one problem is that I am NOT a seamstress. I basically have no idea how to sew. There are a lot of flaws, but he loves it and I am happy! :)

Now.....if I could only finish the quilts that were for Christmas 2009...............

We were originally in the St. Louis Temple district, but have been changed to Louisville now. It is such a beautiful temple. You are going to absolutely love it! Congratulations on your engagement.
