A few Christmas Projects

 Man, I can't believe it's been since November since I've posted anything!  I guess the excitement and busyness of the holidays superseded any desire (or time) to blog! I was also super busy making a few gifts and odds and ends for people!  Which brings me to my most favorite project I've done so far!

A good family friend of ours was interested in ordering a few homemade Christmas stockings and asked if I would be interested in making some for her!  Of course, I'm always opened to new challenges and projects!  After researching a few sewing patterns, I ended up blending a few of them together to make my own and I was quite pleasantly surprised with how they turned out too! 

After sewing the stocking together, I added a little chipboard letter, painted it with a little glitter and hung it with twine
And my friend sent me a picture of them on her mantle!  Don't they look sooo good with her decor?!  I love the way they turned out and might have to make some for myself soon too!

I also made a few other things for people over the holidays, but here's another pillow I've made!  This one was a Christmas present for a friend who lives in Alabama (hence the AL state shape and the hounds tooth fabric :) )  

That's all for now folks!  Wickett wanted to say "Merry Christmas" to you all before February came around!!  :)
