Sweet. . .

Every once in a while I feel the need to sew up something wearable. I love this cute tiered, twirly skirt. When the girls were younger these were so fun to make in coordinating prints. This one is a store sample for HRQ. I absolutely love the yo-yo and button. The one, slightly disappointing factor, this doesn't fit any of my girls. . .but I have nieces! Little cuties to dress up, so this will be for LeAnna after it's visit at Honey Run.
This might also be cute as a hair band.

Checkin' My List

Another finish! I need to thank Jacquie for her motivation. Each day I plug away at the "Need to Finish" pile. Binding takes me forever, it's the OCD in me; I want all the stitches to be uniform~like anyone's going to check. This is the quilt for Lisa. Lisa is Colby's aide in school. She is an unbelievable human being with more kindness, patience and dedication than anyone I've ever known. She loves my son, and for this I'm eternally grateful. Her birthday falls on Christmas, so I wanted her quilt to shout "Happy Birthday!" without a trace of "Merry Christmas!" I hope she enjoys it.
These little Friendship Bags are so addicting! It's a good thing, I'm making quite a few for the kids to give to the secretaries at their schools and their teachers. The kids will make something yummy to fill them with. Christmas is so much more fun when it's homemade. Speaking of homemade here is my version of carrot cake~cream cheese frosting and all. Hayley insists on taking pictures of every baked good that passes through the kitchen~which is a lot. I made this to go along with the traditional pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving. It was a hit!

Have a good weekend and stay warm~that means you Terri, on your outing for the perfect Christmas tree!
