Christmas is coming, faster and faster!!!

In between making the cards and addressing all of them and signing them all personally by hand, I have been taking time to sew for Christmas. There are 4 pillowcases done for 4 little ones, with at least 4 more to make this week.
I also went to the Ladies Quilt group at my sisters the other night and they made these fabric napkins, I was working on those Christmas cards, so I made two today for a gift.

Stamping, Watercoloring, swishin' and glueing!!

I am working on 70 cards. I am using a stamp that I got from I (heart) Papers that is by Stampendous and is called Snowy Postcard. I stamped them and then used my watercolor pencils to give them some color and blended with my waterbrush. I roughed up the edges and am swishin' them with Tim Holtz Distressed Ink, Tea Dye. Once I finish all that, I can mount them on the blue background and then onto the card base!!!

Sewing for a new baby boy

Well, last night we found out that my great-niece and her husband are having a baby boy in April!! I am so excited as this niece was our flower girl in our wedding almost 20 years ago and she has a special place in my heart. My girls say I like her best!!! LOL They had a gender reveal party and out of the box came blue balloons, so Arason will be here in April!!! I made a bib and spit rag out of a fat quarter of International Harvester Farmall fabric so that even if it was a girl, either way, daddy could feel 'manly' while feeding baby!! Now I am off to make more pillowcases!!!!

Haven't posted due to Christmas is coming!!!

Alot of the things I have been working on lately is for Christmas so I have had nothing to post, well, lots to post, but I don't want my family to see them until they get them for Christmas. On thing I do every year for my nephew Jason and his wife Kristy is add something to their boys' stockings. My mom made Landon's stocking back in 2004 to match his mommy and daddy's, so my sister Julie has helped make the stockings and then I have done all the handwork and Snowmen on them. This year was fun to do, the family got their first travel trailer this summer and had a few adventures, so I made a travel trailer our of felt and blanket stitched it on. I even used my Nestabilities to make the circles for the wheels!!
I plan on uploading more as they get given out so I hope you will come back by soon.
