I’m longing for a nap right about now. It almost goes without saying, but hosting Christmas in NYC when you have a six month old baby = exhausting. However, traveling with said child would have been murder, so, I think we came out ahead.
Due to a lost baggage nightmare, the stockings my mother had made for our Christmas went to Washington-Buffalo-Philadelphia-Tampa before finally landing in Laguadia, at midnight on Christmas. This necessitated some quick sewing on my part; using some Josef Frank fabric ($5 at a Brunschwig and Fils sample sale) I had squirreled away in my fabric stash. I used this great (free! printable!) pattern from The Purl Bee. I really like how festive and modern they look. Hope everyone is staying warm and dry.
