Last night's football game was horrible, but at least I got some handwork finished, including four Christmas presents.
A few years ago, my mother passed along to me a copy paper box stuffed full of raw silk remnants in every color imaginable. I used them to whip up a few of these business card holders as Christmas gifts in 2009. It was time to make some more this year.
I made two for my Honey's sisters - their mother passed away last year and that embroidered slate blue silk on the bottom left came from her stash; the other is the open one and also has the embroidered silk on the outside. The other two go to colleagues. The grey one has a bright yellow middle pocket and the other is in Virginia Tech colors - burgundy and orange - and both have a pretty little thing sewn on the outside for visual interest, a finding from the jewelry aisle at Jo-Ann's.
I might slip a gift card into each one of them before presenting. I'm not quite sure yet. But at least these are four gifts to be checked off the list.
