First I tried my hand at some painting... I was very bored with no other projects to work on. It was a fun diversion, but I will stick to sewing.
My mom and I worked on some secret sewing for my little sister...
I have been dying to share this! We gave it to her at Christmas yesterday so now you can all see it too! It is tied, not quilted and had been folded up for a couple of weeks... so you'll have to forgive the wrinkles.
I also made these little sock guys for my students. They took about 4 hours to make 16 and a pound of rice each. There are tutorials all over pinterest! They turn out so cute.
I also made a couple of pot holders! So fun and only took around 1 1/2 hours!
Here are a couple of table runners. For the Christmas table runner I just used 3 ten inch star blocks and sewed them together, then quilted using swirls on my home machine. The other is another 10 minute table runner I made for my Grandma.
I can't forget about cookies.... my husband helped me make these cute swirl cookies. Of course I made lots of other cookies too but I was having too much fun baking with family and forgot to take pictures. Oops.
