Two Days in a Row!

Hello everyone, 

Can you believe I have made a blog post two days in a row? LOL It has been snowing here again, but so far only a couple more inches of the nasty  lovely white stuff on the ground. Not much wind, so no drifting. For that I am very thankful. The forecast is for very bitter temps for at least the next week or so. I guess we won't be having a meltdown any time soon.


I decided today to show you a few of the things I have worked on for Christmas. I started out with stockings for all the grandkids. These were fun to make. I even embroidered their names on them. These are wonky stars, so they are supposed to be all off kilter. LOL I found them on this blog about a month ago. She did a fabulous tutorial on making them.  Here they are all lined up and ready to be filled.


Here are Noah and Izabella's. 

I made Ashton's more grown up looking. After all, he is 6 now. LOL His and Ava's.

This is little Madison's stocking. I filled hers with baby food and a few small toys.

Then after getting the stockings made, I found a pattern for really nice pillow cases here. I love the French seams. This link has lots of pictures which help to explain this process and make it easy.  I bought Tinkerbell and Cars fabric for Ava and Noah, but already had fabric in my stash for Izzie and Ashton. Madison isn't old enough for a pillow in her crib yet, so she will get the Peter Rabbit quilt I made last spring. Here are Ashton's and Ava's pillow cases.

Here are Noah and Izzie's pillow cases.

Here is the Peter Rabbit quilt that I made from a panel given to me by Milah last spring. I think Madison will like it.


Well, I think that is it for me today. My dh just left for work. He has been home since last Thursday, so I have lots of cleaning to get done. For some reason, I just can't get the housework done up when the hubby is home. LOL I hope you all have a great day. Thanks for visiting.

Hi Winona! It's good to see you back here. The stockings are way cute and I'm like you with the pillow cases, I love the french seams, it makes it look so professional! The kids love those pillow cases too, my grandson will not let anyone sleep on his John Deere pillow. LOL! And boy, that Peter Rabbit quilt brought back memories! ;D Madison will love it!

Winona I agree, I'm glad you're back posting too lol. Your work is all beautiful as usual and I really like the pillow cases. Never thought about making those and Alana is always looking for kiddish ones and she's 25 lol.
Happy New Year my friend and stay warm in that lovely snow ;-)

Such cute gifts, I'll have to check out the blog for the stockings. Need to make one for my granddaughter next year. I put my hubby to work when he's underfoot LOL.

I know what you mean about the Hubby being home, Winona- I just forget about cleaning house because it's useless. (especially the floors... I never knew one pair of boots could leave so many tracks....)
The Christmas stockings are wonderful!! I love the colors in them. And the Peter Rabbit quilt is gorgeous- I LOVE the fabric!!
