I've been working on the embroidery on this for days and days (little moments here and there) and yesterday I took it in to Home Ec so that Codi could help me figure out how to sew in the satin lining (it was so easy! but many thanks for the guidance!). I am SO happy with how it turned out. It definitely looks homemade, but in this case, I think that's a good thing. Looking forward to all the many Christmas mornings ahead of us!
