December 3rd and Another Sewing Project

December 3rd! Most of the decorating and clean up is finished for Christmas now, so I am taking a break to sew in my cottage today. This is my Mary Engelbrieght stocking I made last week. I love the measuring tape ribbon bow and I finally found a good use for the little ceramic pin cushion button I have had for years. I think it turned out pretty good. I have a little tree that I hope to decorate in ME style in a few days for the cottage.

Here's the finished project. It's lined in the black and white tea cup fabric that you can see on a bag in the background. I hope Santa finds his way to the cottage!

Jimmy bought me a wonderful cutter quilt in red and off white. I was looking for one to make stockings and some other items. I am going to try to finish the tree shirt today and hopefully, I will be able to do a blog post on the finished items tomorrow. The woodstove is going to get a workout.

We have a cold spell coming our way. It will be cold for a week and we may see a bit of snow out of this one before it's all over.

Sweet Christmas projects! Hope you get just enough snow so that it looks like Christmas, but not so much that it's annoying. :-) We're supposed to have very cold temps by the weekend.

Are Ava and Otto getting new stockings from Grandma? I have a present for Otto I am working on. I'm a little behind with my knee surgery, and trying to get caught up. So many people having babies! :)

That's adorable, Linda. I love Mary's designs, don't you? You did a great job.

Thanks so much for the sweet Thanksgiving Day card! Hugs. Susan

How adorable is that? Love Mary Englebright! Make sure to post photos of that tree. I'm so glad you have a special space of your own to play in!

How sweet your stocking is! Love the measuring tape bow with the little pincushion button! So perfect. I kept all my ME magazines and was so depressed when she quit publishing. Can't wait to see your finshed projects. Stay warm and cozy - brrrrrr! Hugs xo Karen

Stay warm, sweet friend! Love and hugs!
