    These are not very good pictures but all I got was of her when she opened it. I just finished it Christmas Eve and got it wrapped before she got to my house. My DH ask why I put everything off to the last minute----Duhhh--and miss the chance to run around like a wild person, stay up until 2 in the morning, and do the last stitches before someone walks in the house for Christmas--why not wait until the week before Christmas when you have nothing much to do anyway to start a gift for someone. Hey--you miss all the fun that way!

    Denise asked

    How long did it take you to make it?

    Denise I started it Dec. 15th. It was a learn as you go project. Had never made a sweatshirt jacket before so had a lot of "reverse sewing". Can't say how many hours I worked on it as I had 4 "hunters" at my house that week that wanted 3 meals a day. I think their "clubhouse " needs to be moved. So I just ran and did a little when I had a few minutes--thus the staying up until 2 in the morning. Maybe the next one will not be so bad, as I learned a lot on this one---if there is a next one.

    Nice job. I like that you used a "slippery" fabric for the lining. It makes for such a nice, easy garment to wear.
