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.

Plane bags

Here’s the assortment of goodies for the kids on the airplane ride. airplane bags the playdoh was definitely a big hit. Inside of the little books are various things I drew for them to color and questions to answer about thanksgiving and the plane. I think I may have had way too much fun making them. Since I was sitting with the baby, Michael was sitting with the kids in the opposing aisle…which meant he was in charge of keeping them occupied. He didn’t go through the books with them, so we didn’t really get into them till we got back home after Thanksgiving. But when we did they thought it was pretty cool. Now I need a new reason to make books for them.
