It it too early to start thinking about Christmas? Before the Halloween candy is handed out? It’s not like I am putting Christmas lights up on the house…but I have started quilting/sewing decorations and gifts for Christmas.
This week I finished making each of us quilted Christmas stockings. Using fabric leftover from my Christmas quilt, I mixed in some new fabrics to make these sweet stockings. I used the instructions/pattern from Amanda Murphy’s book Modern Holiday.
But, since I can’t follow written directions, I had to jazz the stockings up with my own creativeness.
Although the quilt patterns in the book are lovely, I used the same quilting pattern/technique that I used for my Christmas quilt, and I added an embroidered applique (from Hobby Lobby) to the cuff.
Even though I did my own thing with the quilting design, I followed the instruction in Amanda’s book. I love, love this book! There are so many cute things to quilt for the holidays…and gifts! Friends & family…Don’t be surprised if you get something I have sewed this year. I have big plans.
Okay, since Halloween is next week…here’s a sneak peek to the girls’ costumes. Today was the Halloween parties at school. A week early, I know. Weird.
If you know her, you know she isn’t really being Super Girl for Halloween. She is going as Ghost Face (from the movie Scream). But, that is against the school dress code. So today she is SUPER GIRL!
We found that cute shirt, with the pink cape attached, at Walmart. Can you believe it?
She’s not a lady bug…she’s my love bug! Adorable, I know. Love the red and white striped tights she picked out!
Have a wonderful and blessed weekend!
