WRAPPING IT UP

Tis the season to be finishing things up.  I have sewn the last of my Bee blocks for this year.  I was late on a couple, but I got them done and in the mail.

These blocks are for the Joy circle of do.good stitches

Houses for Jaclyn


These two are for Lara.  Simple 9 patches to end the year


This little house is for Michelle in our Mid Century Modern group. Michelle is a speech therapist so I added a little texty print for fun


and this one for Elizabeth in the same group.


On the knitty front, I picked up this little onesie and knew I had to knit matching socks.  These were fun to make but I think they may only fit for one day : )



and my daughter has wanted a pair of 'work socks' for forEVER!  I cast on and it's a race to get them finished in time to stuff her stocking


Lastly, I hosted our staff Christmas dinner again this year. Turkey dinner with all the fixings. Here we are looking stuffed : )


These are a great group of ladies to work with and I look forward to another busy year!

What about you.  Are you ready?

Your blocks are so sweet.

Love the cute wee socks with that onesie. I'm pretty sure you can finish up those socks before Christmas. ;-) They look like they will be toasty too.

Love those tiny socks for the onesy!!
How fun for y'all to get together for a holiday party! It's always nice to socialize outside of work...

Nicky said...

Well done for finishing on time! And for feeding so many... thanks for linking up to #scraptastictuesday

Get shots! I think I have some lumberjack socks in my future!

Isn't it nice to be caught up with bee blocks? I like the little "blah" in Michele's block. That Blah fabric is one of my favorites. I bought a couple yards of it the last time I saw it in a shop, and use it line pouches and bags. It always makes the recipient smile. And look at you knit! Good stuff there. And kudos for hosting a meal gathering. I know the prep that goes into that sort of thing... which is why I don't often volunteer my house! :-) Have fun making holiday preparations, and keeping up with everything!

I love what you chose for the center of Michelle's block--I have just a few scraps of that fabric and it always makes me smile.

'Tis great you have caught up on all your bee blocks....each one is lovely. How adorable are those lumberjack socks. You look anything but "stuffed", Carla. You look trim, taut and terrific. Me thinks a little more turkey on your plate, this Christmas time. =)

Janine said...

Lovely blocks and those socks are adorable. Perfect with that cute onesie :)

Karen @ Pieces of Contentment said...

No not ready here but enjoying the process and anticipation.. You have finished up nicely. Enjoy your Christmas.

I love the sock knitting. One of these days I plan to get organised and learn how to do it, myself. Those 'lumberjack' socks look like they would last forEVER. I would love to be able to make them for my husband, instead of buying the store bought ones that he is always complaining about. Are hand knitted socks difficult to wash and dry?

Great work completing all the blocks.
The little onesie is lovely and the socks are such fun.
Nearly ready for Christmas Day here.

Julie Crawford said...

oh my gosh, those tiny socks!!! adorable. and such a great photo of everyone! And those house quilt blocks are amazing.

Karen said...

I think Nicole is trying to sneak out with the turkey in her shirt...lol

Afton Warrick said...

I find it ironic that you are going to stuff a stocking with stockings. The matching socks for the onesie are too cute!

Dawn Hughes said...

WOW, you have been busy, the blocks and all very nice, and the socks, both the little ones and the work socks.... Glad that your Christmas Work Party was another success.... Such a fabulous group of ladies.

I love those socks - the teeny-tiny ones and the grown-up ones.
I am already stuffed and we still have a week until Christmas proper. I still have two more celebratory feasts before the big day! I think I finished the last of the Christmas shopping yesterday. Phew.

Lovely bee blocks, especially the one for Elizabeth. Happy Christmas!

The text print in the MCM house is just perfect. Have a very Merry Christmas Carla.
