everyone. I hope you all have a safe and happy New Year.

What are your resolutions for 2011?
I'm not much on making resolutions, but I have decided to use what I have in my stash to stitch up this year. I have more patterns and projects that I can do in my lifetime, as I'm sure many of you do.Soooooo, unless I need a piece of fabric for a particular piece I'm going to use what I have.
I'm sure that will make hubby very happy, even though he is really good about that. He actually got me got a bit of things for Christmas, including 2 pairs of scissors. 

See you all in 2011!!!

I don't have anything to show, I've not got much done lately. My mother has been here for several weeks so needless to say not getting much stitching done.I was hoping to finish a couple of things by the end of the year so I could start fresh in the new year. Maybe, we'll have to see.

I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you in 2011

Some Embroidery

I've started doing a little bit of embroidery lately, I found this cute design looking at different blogs and one lead to another and I found it here. I had to do it. Since Sophie is black I did the outline in black , gave her a pink collar and did the background in different pins.  I'm not sure how I will finish it, maybe a little cushion.

Then my granddaughter drew this and wanted me to embroidery it, I'm not sure if this is someone else's design or something she drew.It needs to be pressed yet. She picked out DMC's satin floss for me to stitch it in, I didn't really like it. It doesn't do well if you have dry hands. She hasn't decided yet how she wants to finish it.

Some More Sewing

My daughter-in-law was wanting a apron and I thought I could probably make one. Yeah, me, the one who is intimidated by the sewing machine. My husband and I went to a craft show a few weeks ago and a girl had some aprons that she had made, I looked but didn't see what I thought my DIL would like so skipped them. Hubby said you can make one as good as hers, why not make one for her. Duh, you forget I can't sew. Anyway...
it took longer than the normal person I'm sure but here is the finished apron. I just hope she likes it.
It's being wrapped up and  mailed today.
