- it's now time to get back to some sewing! I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas - ours was a pretty quiet one, which was nice!
I haven't been doing a lot of sewing - although I was working on this on Christmas Eve - always have to have one last minute rush project - right?
This fabulous stocking was designed by my friend from the VMQG, Berene, of Happy Sew Lucky fame. Berene has all kinds of super cute patterns and designs that she does on Spoonflower - go take a peek!
I ordered it through Spoonflower in the periwinkle colour way. It finally made its way to my house on December 23 - (I love my postal system, I love my postal system) - and then I had to paint it, quilt it and turn it into a stocking. This was to be a stocking for my SIL, and it had to be in his team colours. I loved the idea of the converse sneaker, and it just seemed to fit him perfectly.
It all worked out beautifully, and I got it made, stuffed with stocking goodies and delivered on Christmas Day. Yay!
I did get back into my sewing room today - boy do I need to do a major cleanup in there! I've finished off a virtual bee block, and have finished a top for a donation preemie quilt, and am 2/3rds of the way done a second one. My goal for the coming year is to use my stash and to finish off a few of my WIPs. Doesn't that sound like a familiar goal? Hmmm - check out this post last December! I had a really busy 2011, but I didn't make a dent in my WIP list! That has got to change! I am really going to try and finish off a WIP between every couple of new starts. Wish me luck!
2011 was a good year - I'll put together a photo collage in a couple of days of what I did get done - I still have some time to finish off a few things, and I do have a drop in day coming up on Saturday! Lets see if I can get A WIP or two off my list!
I just realized I haven't taken any pictures yet of my new and improved living room - its too dark right now, but I'll try and get some in the daylight tomorrow - if we have any - it has been so grey and dreary lately, really depressing. Maybe I better go play with some bright fabrics...
