I was going to put this on a card, but I could never get the pictures to print right after I collage-d them all together. So, here you go: Happy New Year!
I haven't posted in forever, and here's why:
Aubie and Jill had their first sleepover before Christmas, so I made aprons to remember it by.
I made a potholder, apron, and basket liner (painted the basket red) for our church ladies Christmas party.
For Leah's Christmas present, I made a reversible apron (she's been needing an apron for the art room) out of a reversible skirt she had given me. I also made myself 2 "puffed-sleeve" turtlenecks out of the 2XLs Ma gave me--one of them pictured here.
Finally finished Miss Debbie's prize!
New Year's Eve Costumes.
Made the letters for my costume (hemmed the skirt as well). I was Cordelia Drexel Biddle from "The Happiest Millionaire". Leah is Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman. (sorry this pic is so tiny--I stole it from Facebook.) Made Daniel's hat and boot-covers from scratch, painted a thrifted jacket bright blue and added cuffs and a much bigger collar. Daniel was going to go for existential, but I thought it'd be a fun Christmas present for him to have the whole costume. And, guess what! he won the Best Costume prize! Woohoo! "Old Tom Bombadil is a merry fellow;
Bright blue his jacket is, and his boots are yellow."
The ornaments were some that I cut out when Renee did ornaments with the kids and me. Then I painted them at home (much more peaceful painting by myself! : )
This one was for Lyndsay--3 down, 47 to go : )
And then lastly, possibly my favorite quilt yet. Not only is it so green (as in the color), its pretty "green"--as in it was 100% STASH!!!! Woohoo! (For those of you who don't know the term "stash", it means that it is all stuff that you already have. So technically, it didn't cost me a penny.)
The recipient is doing the nursery in John Deer, so green and yellow fields with corn and green beans seemed appropriate. The tractor toy has a squeaker inside!
