Christmas gifts

Well, I managed to finish three of the four gifts I was planning for Christmas (the fourth is more of a birth sampler, so as long as I get it done by the baby's first birthday in June, I'm calling it good :) ). I framed them as well, though I'm not as happy with the frame jobs as I could be. Either way, they're better than good, they're done. :)

My mom's Christmas gift - really, if it's patriotic, involves cats, or involves Coca-Cola, she'll like it. I really should have added a little Coke bottle next to the kitty on this one, to make it the trifecta. :)

Close up

For my father-in-law, an architect who also cross stitches (and quilts, and carves wood, makes jewelery, makes chess sets, etches father-in-law is impressive). This is a pattern based on a Frank Lloyd Wright stained glass window. I'm also giving him another FLW pattern that I've kitted up, so he can do one, too.

And finally, my mother-in-law's gift, the big quilt pattern that I hated and was having trouble finishing. I finished, yay! There's actually supposed to be another border on this one, but 1) it fit in the frame better without the second border, and 2) I didn't really have the time for another border. :)

My mother's already received hers, and she loved it. My in-laws will be receiving theirs tomorrow when we finally meet up for the gift-giving. :)
