Even more...stockings that is....

This past Christmas, I made so many stockings and worked on so many other things, that it took me far away from posting any pictures or writing down my many thoughts. Prayerfully I will be better this year and take more time writing and sharing on my blog.

I need to begin this blog by sharing the stocking that I made for my nephew's sweet son, Sean..He is such a sweetie pie and I thought this stocking fit him perfectly!

Recently I made a fun dress for my granddaughter, Natalie using a Little Lizard King pattern.  You'll notice that it looks  very similar to the Kari Mecca pattern that I normally use, but the straps are different and I like them so much better .  Here's Natalie in her dress.  She was born the day before St. Patrick's Day so I embroidered LUCKY on the bodice.  I think she looks pretty cute in it.

Until next time.....

Logan's I Spy Quilt

I finished Logan's interactive I Spy quilt just needs a label on the back.  The label will not be done before Christmas as I have too many other things to finish up, BUT,  at least the quilt can now go under the tree.  Thank you Lord!!

Here are a few shots of the quilt, hope he likes it!:

And of course the back just HAD to have a rich, soft, wonderful, black minkie.

Moving on......

Miss Natalie's and Mr James's Stockings

Two more down!!!

My daughter-in-law asked if I would update my son's stocking that I had made for him years ago.  On the toe of the stocking I decided to embroider the name,  'DUDE'.  I can't tell you how many years I heard my children call their big brother,  'DUUUUDE'.  For awhile I thought his true name was forever lost to that nickname.  Here's the stocking and here's my super hero son.  Love that boy!

And now for my little granddaughter Natalie, the happiest girl on the planet!

I think I'm getting closer....haha

Christmas Stockings

It's that time of year again when I am busy making Christmas stockings for members of my family.  With four new babies, my nephew's new little one and an update required on an old one from my daughter-in-law my sewing machine is humming...or should I say working!!  I thought that I would at least share one completed stocking along with a sneak peek of another one.

Don't forget to click on image for a closer view!

Guess what movie my kids have tickets for already?  How could I not make a Star Wars Christmas stocking??

Purse # 2

Here is the second purse.  The second purse is made by Green Bee.  I have never made anything from either one of these pattern companies before.  Green Bee is not for the beginner where I feel Noddle-head is.  Instructions...which you know are important to me...seemed to be a little clearer on the Noodle-head pattern.  Upon looking at both blogs, I was impressed with both designers and their written word, ideas, and designs.  Make sure that you take a look at both!  Here is the second purse:

You will notice that there is only one pocket on the inside, but outer sides each have a small pocket.

And here is the pattern:

So which one do you like best??
