More scarves

I didn't have much time to make gifts this year, but I did manage a few.

Pleated wool scarf for my Uncle. (From Simple Gifts To Stitch)

Another Button Scarf, for my Aunt. I found a cute Dragonfly button at Joann's. It's just the right color. (Also from Simple Gifts To Stitch)

Where have I been?

Well, there have been a few things occupying my time lately.

These two, for instance.

And these two. (The aprons, not the bears.)

And spreading Christmas Cheer Chocolate, of course.

I finished a sewing project!!!!

My Mom gave me this lovely book for Christmas last year and I have to admit that I have finally finished my first project from it.

I decided to donate a Christmas gift to a Senior Citizen through a local program called Santa for Seniors. The person I chose wanted a scarf. I included a store-bought Christmas themed scarf and this....

A Button Scarf from Simple Gifts To Stitch.

The inside is Minky, which is super soft and cuddly. The outside is part of a thrifted pillowcase and a thrifted vintage(?) button.

I'm very happy with how it came out. I hope the recipient enjoys it!

Ready for Winter

What do you get when you tell a six year old boy to go put on something warm?

Quite the fashion statement!
