Every year in the run up to Christmas, I go quiet on the blog, and other places where I would normally share the projects I'm working on. Because the projects I'm spending my time on are gift for Christmas, and I don't want the recepients seeing details before they get the present. This year I worked on two things, one for my wife, and one for a secret Santa that was going to one of my brothers.
This christmas my wife and I agreed that we would make our gifts for each other. Given we made the decision a month or so before christmas it allowed plenty of time to figure out a plan, order supplies, and have some weekends to actually start making..
