Christmas Stockings

I have HORRIBLE pictures of the Christmas stockings that I just made. It’s too bad because they look awesome in person.

SMTD| Xmas Stockings ()I made three of them, one for each of us. For Mila’s I used fabric from the super cute line Hip Holiday by Jospehine Kimberling. The other two stockings both have pieces from Brr Polar Bear Christmas (I can’t find it for sale online anymore).

SMTD|Xmas Stocking ()I followed the falling flakes stocking tutorial by imagine gnats, and altered the top of the stocking so it had a binding. They turned out a perfect size and I love how they are quilted. Maybe next year I can get a better picture of them.



Christmas Banner

We just had our yearly Christmas photos taken and I knew I wanted to make a Christmas banner for us to hold in our pictures. It was amazingly easy and was finished in 2 nap times!

As a bonus, it looks great on our mantle!

Ornament Swap

I participated in an ornament swap this year. One of my girlfriends from the Boston Modern Quilt Guild organized a swap on her blog, Dresden Lane. She sent me two adorable ornaments, I just love them!

I finally finished my ornaments (a week ago)Monday and I’m pretty happy with how they turned out.

I followed this tutorial I saw on Stumbles & Stitches blog. I have secret dreams of having a tree with a bunch of these scattered all over, but I think that might be another christmas….

Welcome to the Gun Show

We had our holiday photos taken yesterday and we were a little silly.
