In making my lists for Christmas gifts, I somehow completely forgot to add Kevin's grandma to the list. She refuses to accept anything she sees as costing us too much money, so I usually try to make her something. So here it was the very day we were seeing that side of the family for Christmas dinner, and I suddenly remembered.
Lucky for me, I had a mostly-completed apron in my sewing stash All it needed was the neck ties attached. I had been experimenting with a new design, but had to clean up before I was done, and so never got back to it.
I quickly completed the apron, and put it in a mason jar instead of wrapping it. Then we left for the dinner...forgetting the salad I was supposed to bring. Oh well.
