Auntie B. quilted the tree skirt and gave it to me in 1993 as a bridal shower gift!
On to some gifts...
Here are some happy little aprons I embellished for my best gal pal E.'s twins.
So fun! Remember Lucy Grey? Well, she was supposed to be for me, but someone I know really liked her after the felting. You know I had to embellish her with a bit of needle felting. I lined her and soon she'll be wrapped up. Any guesses as to the recipient?

I opened the package and found 4 happy looking presents!
Even one for Little Mr. I'm 5 and Little Miss Finally 4.
The little people tried to talk me into opening them.
I must be honest I'm typically one to open gifts as they come in the door, but I'm trying to stick with Chookyblue on this and wait until Christmas morning!
I guess that will be a post for December 26th!

I made three pairs of earrings but wasn't sure how to package them.
I put the earrings on little cards I made from scrapbook paper. I sewed two pieces together and then sewed little envelopes with the coordinating paper. I added buttons and embroidery floss to make the closures.
Funny...Most often I can't just complete something without major plans or patterns. HobbyHubby even called to see if I was getting all worked up about the jewelry. (He knows me so well!) I tend to fret about jewelry construction; maybe obsess would more properly describe my state of mind. Not today!! I'm just as happy and fret free as can be! Maybe it had something to do with the turkey I ate yesterday! HA!

As usual Crazy Mom Quilts inspires. I joined her quilt-a-long and this is my block for week one. I'm just a week behind and hope to get caught up over the weekend. I'm using a fat quarter set my mom got me for Christmas 2 years ago. I'm making 2 of each block and I plan to hang one quilt in my office at work and possibly gift the other one. We'll see...
Last night I also worked on my secret Santa swap offered by Chookyblue. Not much left to do before popping it into the mail....

HobbyHubby picked out this for another hat!
More Noro! Loving it!

Just the straps left to knit and then the felting fun begins!
I'm really digging the card making. I pretty much HATE having to come up with the ideas (that's Alison's new job! HA!), but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the actual card construction! I'm a pattern girl I guess!
I had to give Little Mr. I'm 5's teddy some TLC repair.
Teddy's little behind needed 2 patches.

I hope... These crazy cats are soooo cute!! Love em...
The pathetic-ness of this particular project is that I've had the fabric for over 2 years... Actually, it was a kit so even easier. More pathetic is that I started this happy cat quilt last January and haven't picker her up since.... Well, she's not actually together enough to be talking about her with such an attached fondness. More pathetic than above is the fact that I have two to make: One for me and one is a graduation gift for a great southern gal I know.... but the little darling graduated in 2005!!!
Oops... I think I might be talking myself right out of that groove... Nope... I'm determined not to!
Anywhoooo.... this is a kit from the Buggy Barn. Check out these CRAZY CATS. Too fun!
I'll keep you posted on what I can get done with these crazies this week!

Let me see... we have monkeys, a sea horse, hamsters (one is actually fuzzy), a crab, turtles, birds, bunnies, a duck, a mouse, dogs, kitties, a play house, little take along cases....
What toys do you and your little people like to play with?
Maybe I'll get to sew tonight!

Or, maybe it just seemed that way because the fabric has been staring at you for months and months...
Or, you made so many pillowcases for relatives last year...
Or, HobbyHubby asked where the pillowcases for the HobbyHouse were...
At this point...IT DOES NOT MATTER! The seasonal/holiday/fun pillowcases are finished.... Hurray. I can move on to some other sewing with no more pillowcase guilt!!!!

Hopefully I'll have a more productive run soon and have something new to share!
