Christmas Coffee Cozy

Dec4 022 
Soooo someone pressed the cheap button at work and the new coffee cups are so thin they burn your hands. Honestly, I am not even sure if they are actual coffee cups but we have 3 cases of them so I will have to make do.

As the hot chocolate from Friday afternoon scalded my palm I remembered Terri's coffee cup cozy post and had the "ah-ha" moment. I could fix this little problem of mine and have gifts for the co-workers I like. It was perfect...well..almost.

I ran out of red thread and since the place I buy my thread is an hour and a half away I ended up having to scrounge around for this sad little spool.

I did some free motion which I have been practicing on (it's a lot harder than it least to me) and realized I didn't have any green thread either. Sigh.

Still, all in all I think the cozy turned out great. I already have a couple more done and then my mom wants one now as well.

I have many other projects and gifts I need to get started on but I keep having all these problems this an ear-ache, sinus infection, a pinched nerve in my neck (which is killing me when I'm cutting fabric), things like that. Unfortunately since we only have a couple more weekends until Christmas I'll just have to keep sewing and hope I don't keel over before the holidays.

How are your handmade Christmas gifts coming along???
