November 26

Mikey and a couple elves decorating the yard
I have all my helpers trimming the tree
I think they did a great job
I decided over the summer, this year I was going to make everyone a new Christmas stocking.
No more ugly fuzzy red ones that are falling apart. I went out to the sewing room every night for two weeks and they are finally done.( I was dragging at the end, they all started looking the same. )Just kidding. It was so fun. It was a lot different then making a quilt thats for sure. I sat all the holiday fabric out on the cutting table and one by one they got to pick "their own colors". I embroidered names on them and the kids were so excited watching them get completed. Today we hung them up.

Mike asked me to make a quick baby quilt for someone who had recently had a
baby boy. So I went through my fabric and a couple of hours later.....came up with this. I think it's cute.
Not fancy, but she was thrilled.

November 1

Today Kassadie went to her routine cardiology appointment.
Next door to her doctor's office is the quilt store.
When they got home,
Mike surprised me again with a new machine.
( I have yet to buy a machine myself, haha)
This one has a learning curve?????
So just like I tell the kids when they are learning
something new. Practice, practice, practice.
I just wish there were more hours in a day.
Wish me luck!
