My neice turned 16 yesterday and we had a family party for her tonight. We had more snow today so I almost thought we weren't going to be able to make it. We decided to start out and then just turn around if the roads were too bad. We made it! She loves to cook-she made all her birthday party treats- so I made her an apron to go with the rest of her present. I finished it about 15 minutes before we left-talk about close :) She liked it and smiled when she realized what it was. I'm glad I was able to give her a little something special, just for her, and although I spent all day finishing it up, it was worth it.
P.S. Kris-I stuck the check in the pocket just like you suggested and then wrapped it all up :)
