We're coming up on our second California-Christmas and again, I just don't feel it. I've seen lights up around town, been to the busy malls, baked cookies, and I just don't feel that Christmas spirit that I think is only possible when you have the cold and snow and parkas and mittens.
But anyway, speaking of cookies: I made a few batches of the oatmeal chocolate chip Almond Roca cookies that I made with Holly last year!
So with the files for minted finished, I was itching for something else to work on and how perfect it was that K. & C. gave birth to little baby Logan recently =) I had been meaning to wrap the little baby gift I got them for the longest time (I think it's been sitting on my shelf since she reached the 30 week mark... yikes!) and finally I was inspired and whipped up a bit more of my hand-stitching goodness. The colors didn't turn out the way I was envisioning (gradient of blue colors) as I didn't have enough variation in thread color but alas... I think the overall effect is still decent, yeah? Of course my favorite element is the smiling sun, peaking over the cloud =)
