Holiday Progress

Another Christmas gift finished this week.  The daisy flower grannies whip up quickly.  It's not a long scarf but enough to have some flashy color on ones neck.

And from my blogoversary swap, I received a little something from the winner Joanne.  Aren't these cute.  A crocheted pouch and mandala pot pad. 
Thanks Joanne, love them.

I'm hoping to get some sewing projects done this weekend.  Only 3 and half weeks away. Boy does Christmas creep up quick. 

Happy weekend all!

Stash busting

This week I finished a few small projects. This cute little holiday owl.

A quick stash busting scarf.

Made a zipper pouch. First one.  However, it didn't turn out how it was supposed to but all that matters is it serves it's purpose, to hold stuff. LOL

And these super cute owlie patch fabrics arrived in the mail. 
Not sure what I am going to do with them.  Maybe just frame them. LOL
They were too cute to resist not getting them.

And a lovely co-worker surprised me with a bunch of Cherished Teddies that I collect.  Now I have a decent collection.

Above is some of the new ones. 
And below is the collection.

Now I think I'll start to get out the holiday decorations.
Happy weekend all!!

Finished WIP

Finally finished my roll ripple pillow.  I had to extend the stuffing pouch inside.  As it turned out a co-worker bought it from me.  I had made her a baby boy blanket earlier in the year and it matched with it.


I've been working on some holiday gift sewing projects.
Below I got a lovely fat quarter pack from Ebay.
I think I'm becoming a fabric junkie as well.

This week at lunch time I went for a stroll in a local park.
Trying to take in the lovely fall colours before the white stuff comes.

Saw a woodpecker, squirrels looking for food and a few chipmunks.

Thoughts and prayers are with those in the Philippines and other countries that 
the massive hurricane is going to hit.

Have a good weekend everyone!

It seems it's 2 days past my second year blogoversary.  I totally missed it for my first year. I'm not a long winded type blogger. More a states the facts and show my pictures type.  But I do appreciate all you stop by and check out what I've made and have been update. 

This year I'd love to do a giveaway/exchange. The winner and I will do a small exchange of something we have handmade. No need to get extravagant. Just something you made and maybe something unique from where you live. Just comment on my post and I'll enter you in the giveaway and randomly pick a winner November 16.

I got the idea as I joined the Winter 2013 Handmade Gift Exchange again this year.  You sign up, join using Elfster and pick the Exchange you want to participate in.  Newbie, USA, Canada, or Worldwide.  It is fun.  I have a link on the left side of the blog if you care to check it out.

This is just a small collage of October. My granny square Christmas Tree.  My character in an online game I have been playing for years and recently have been going back in.  My Halloween Pumpkin that I give out candy in.  The kids love it. They also get distracted and stare at it and forget to say trick or treat.  It seems a new saying this year was treat or die?  And my second Lucy bag I'm trying to finish up for my aunt's birthday this month.

I haven't done a whole lot of stitchery this week.  I had a colonoscopy and that was a joyful experience. NOT. On the bright side you loose a few pounds doing to flush beforehand. HAHA.  Seems all is good though.

I did get some cuddle time in with my kitties. 

Happy Weekend All!!
