Happy Halloween Christmas!

My daughter is going as an Elf for Halloween and some of her friends suggested that she should use a big stocking as her Halloween bag. She thought that was a great idea so we went out on Friday afternoon to a Dollar Store to find a stocking. It did not have any huge ones, so she decided to make one herself. We picked up a tablecloth, a neck warmer, and some ribbon from the store, and she had some Christmas buttons at home. When we got home, she made her own stocking template and sewed it all together that night. It looks fabulous. I am trying to convince her to make me one now. Her Dad has told her that she can't use it as her Christmas stocking because it is so big. I think I will find her a gift that can fit in it.

Stockings - Friday Night Sew In

Friday Night Sew In was my daughter's. She made a mini stocking for her and her friend's miniature Christmas tree and I got to be the sous-sewer. I helped her cut them out and she did the rest. She made the template, picked the fabrics, chose the embellishments and sewed them together. I was so impressed how it was such an easy thing for her to do. I am trying to convince her to make me one. I think we have skipped Halloween and moved right on to Christmas.

Anniversary Stars

I went on a quilting retreat this weekend and was able to get all of my star blocks done. I am going to be starting now on the sashing. When I got to the retreat the organizer had goody bags for everyone and I got to choose which fabric I wanted. One of the bags had beautiful deep red fabrics perfect for this quilt so I chose that one and used the fabrics in some of the squares. It felt like serendipity.
