Getting Ready for Christmas 2011

I have been working on a few Christmas gifts. One is the Potato Bag. Pretty simple really. I now have 3 and still haven't made one for myself! I guess I will have to make one so I can see how it works. I made one in a Cowboy theme for my Dad and a Buckeye theme for my Mom. This one:

was for my neighbor's birthday celebration! I hope you get to make one of these for yourself or someone just for fun. Quick and useful. If you'd like I could put the step-by-step instructions on my blog. They were free on the Potato Bag Batting Bag.

Last night I whipped up a ten minute table runner. Well, the directions say 10 minutes but it took me about 45 to complete. The next one will not take as long. You only need 2 pieces of fabric and it makes a cute runner. I used some Santa fabric I bought last year (from my stash) and I LOVE it! See what you think.

Here is a close up of the fabric, so cute and retro!
Well, I could go on but it's getting late. Gotta get my teenage son to think about his midterms tomorrow.
Til next time......

The Start of Something New!

Here goes nothing. Or maybe it will end up being more than I think? The first of many blogs. Trying to set up everything and learning many new things. I have a new wallhanging to post and some other projects lined up also. But for now, I guess I'll be content to see how this works! Wish me luck.
