Yay! It's Christmas Time ...

I'm so relieved that Thanksgiving is over. It's my least favorite holiday.

I swear one day I will get some pictures of my recent projects up. I have been quite busy. I'm crafting for a swap and I have decided to make most of my Christmas gifts this year.

I discovered some wonderful tutorials on http://www.sewmamasew.com/blog2/ and I have already made some things.

The coasters are wonderful and I think that those will make great teacher gifts. I'm also trying to knock out some pajama pants as well.

I made the cutest magnets last night. I was a bit bored and uninspired so I grabbed some buttons to cover, scraps, magnets and my trusty glue gun and came out with these little cuties...

I suppose I will try to get a few more things accomplished tonight.

Long day ...

So I spent the better part of today on a particular item that has been giving me fits for a swap I'm doing. It turned out okay. It's not my usual standards as some of the seam allowances are a little wonky but I think it's alright. It was first attempt at bias tape and will probably be my last. Still it looks great.

Here are the other items I sent as well

Why I'm Here ...

I have never been a huge fan of blogs. They always seemed so egocentric. Lately, I have stumbles upon a lot of blogs that the wonderful members of www.Craftster.org have and I truly enjoy reading those. It's so interesting to see what people are creating so I decided that I would get one as well.

My main goal of this blog is to share completed and current projects. I also will try to post patterns or transfers I have to share with others. Please drop a line to say hi or leave some feedback!
