cape love

snow outside and in

Overall I’d have to say it was one of my favorite christmas’s ever.

This next year, I’m hoping for all kinds of good things. Like sewing and paper cutting and excercising and looking absolutely fabulous in my clothes and sleeping andĀ just being with my family. They’re pretty awesome.

stockingsI’m digging these stockings that I made this year. As much as I like them, I’m already planning different ones for next year…something a little thicker than the flannel…maybe just some interfacing? or maybe some felt? or maybe some stripey canvas?? something not tradtionally christmassy perhaps.

tote 1this is the tote I made my sister…first time I’ve added some little applique patches. I like them. rather a lot. but my favorite bit is the lining. tote lining

table runner
and a table runner for a sister-in-law. for some reason i did not want to make this and procrastinated quite a while, but once i finally started it was fun. i think i thought it would be hard for some reason. why i’m not sure. maybe those loooong straight lines intimidated me.

place matsAnd these are some of the placemats for my mom. There are six altogether, but only two with this fabric. the place mats are double sided, so there are six of one fabric, four of another and two of this one. This wasn’t exactly intentional, but I made a slight mistake on the cutting of the fabric with four place mats and decided to go with a completely different one for the last two. This way she’ll have lots of fall options depending on how many people are eating.

christmas cardJulia and Jeremiah and I have spent a lot of time in the studio making some christmas cards to send to everyone. And I do mean everyone. Julia made sure that all of the pets we know got a card.

sugar cookiesAnd there must, there really must be sugar cookies at christmas.

the bad news is i haven’t gotten to blog as often as I mean to. the good news is I’ve been making stuff.
recycled junk mail bowl
I saw this on A Little Hut and thought hey I can do this. Julia really really likes this bowl. I’m not sure why the paper clips are still there. Just lazy I guess.

pink half apron
And a little half apron. Not so sure about that bottom ruffly trim.

christmas flannel fabric
Joann’s is having quite the nice christmas sale. I got lots of good flannels and I’ve been making us some stockings. I’ll show you when I’m through – still have two more to make.
