I have not been posting as of late as I have been super busy sewing and getting things ready for Christmas!! The wee ones are getting really really excited for Christmas. They have sent in letters to Santa, and have received one back, and waiting for the other one. They also received an email video letter from Santa...this was amazing and their wee faces were magical. You can look here if you are interested in a video letter.
So, as I was saying I have been busy sewing, this is what I have managed to get done so far....7 candle mats, my youngest daughters first quilt (just need the binding), my husbands wall hanging (the one that I have been working on for over a year....just need some embellishments and binding), a bag, some nighties, PJ pants, hair clip holders, hair clips, and some sock monkey's....phew I think that is it...going to get these finished up and then enjoy the holidays with the family!
I would like to do some holiday baking and make some keepsake ornaments with the kids that they can give to grandparents and great grandparents. I still have to take pictures of all of these so I can post, but the pictures I would like to do all at once!
