handmade christmas: gifts

Gifts for my nieces and nephews. Monogrammed coloring cases for the older kids, and a bib for the smallest.
And here's my labor of love for my brother. I got the pattern from The Domestic Scientist.

And here's everything wrapped and ready to take over to my parents' place. I bought the ribbon in Sham Shui Po at the last minute, and am very happy I did.

awesome cross stitch!! how long did it take you?

the cross-stitch took a few days' worth of spare time, so not too bad. it was nice a nice change to have a mobile project that i could take with me (to macau) and work on where ever.
