For the past seven years, I have been sewing and trading bee blocks with wonderful on-line ladies. It has been a lot of fun. and i have sewn some blocks that I never would have otherwise.
The other night, I mailed my last three blocks away. It was such a relief, but I also know that I'm going to miss doing it, and getting them in the mail.
This coming year will be weird as I will be sewing just for me. Imagine : )
I have been busy finishing up some stocking stuffers. As usual it's the last minute...........
For my grand daughters I decided on a first pair of skates for Christmas. Of course they will need some accessories, so I made mittens. Those two are all about the sparkle, so I have done the cuff out of some 'tinsel' yarn
Little miss 'J's are nearly done. Her hands are no bigger than her baby brother's so I had to adjust the pattern some. They are so tiny!
Their mom and dad have built a doll house and are trying to furnish it. My daughter in law asked me for a duvet cover for a twig bed they have built. She wanted 'soft'. I really had to dig for this fabric as most of my stash is now modern.
I tied it with embroidery floss and added some buttons across the top. I hope she likes it
I have wanted to make this little pot holder all year! My son moved out and I had intended to make him a bunch of stuff. I hope he's forgotten...............
This is why I haven't been sewing. Ever since I opened the shop, my sewing room has become a dumping ground. I'll give you just a peek
It is soooooo overwhelming that I can hardly breathe when I go in there. So I don't. This Christmas day and boxing day my hubby works, so I plan on spending two days in there shoveling. That is going to feel so very good.
Merry Christmas to me!!!!
I'll leave you with something that's not a mess. A picture of one side of my little shop.
We moved a couple of displays to make room for more inventory that is coming. I'm pretty full now and things are going great. So very blessed : )
Merry Christmas to all of you dear readers. I will see you in the new year !
