I've been really busy getting ready for Christmas. So much to do! Decorate . . . Trees up but only half done :( . . . Decorations aren't up yet :( but I've been making a little progress on all my projects. :} The 5 aprons turned into 6 aprons. The 2 for swaps are finally going out in tomorrow's mail. :) The 2 for gifts are ready. :) And the other 2 . . . well they're for me! I know! I just had to. I loved the two colorways I made and I just had to have one of each for myself. I knew that if I didn't do them now I wouldn't ever get them done. I love them! I'll show them all to you next week after my swap buddies get theirs. :)
Tonight is the first Friday Night Sew-In of the month!
I definitely will need both of them this month! Will you be joining me at your machine? I'm actually ready to go for a change! I know I can't believe it either! :) I'm making two pairs of jammie pants for each of my 3 kids for Christmas gifts. Here are the flannel fabrics I'll be using . . .
The first two are for my
Here they are all cut and ready to go. :) I occupied my sewing room Thursday and got all these cut out and ready to sew. I'm also hoping to get to this fabric tonight . . .
I'm making something for my 23 year old son with it. Yes the 23 year old! He loves pirates! What will I be making him? You'll have to wait and see! Hee hee! :) It'll be a really quick project. I showed the fabric to my hunky dude and he actually said to make him one too! Little does he know that I'd already planned on it! :) They will make great stocking stuffers! Anyone want to guess what I'm making with it?
I got a surprise in the mail today! :) I already knew what it was but I was shocked it got here so quickly! It was an apron I won earlier this week from the Apronista blog. The apron was donated and made by D-Lux 57. I was very impressed with the presentation. It came in a box . . .
I opened the box and it was wrapped in tissue. . .
I was surprised when I saw what looked like a fabric envelope in plastic . . .
It was a fabric envelope! :)
And it's in the same fabrics as the apron! What an awesome surprise! :)
Inside the envelope was the apron folded neatly and a little note . . .
Here's the apron . . .
I love it! :) This apron is actually a little different than the picture from the website . . . but I love it! (I actually like it better than the one on the website!) :) Lucky me! :) Here's a close up of the fabrics . . .
It's very well made and a great design! I absolutely love it and wore it the rest of the day! :)
Don't forget I'll be having a giveaway starting on Saturday! Be sure to come back to see what I'm giving away! Maybe the mailman will deliver it to your door! :)
Until next time . . .
