I sewed !!!

I dont believe how slow the first week of the holidays have been, and with the constant rain it has been all inside..BUT, I sewed...
I finally enlarged the armholes on this top, that has been hanging around waiting...
Now it has new facing and has already been worn with pride..

I finished hand stitching the owls tummy in place..
I located full sets of 5 and sorted all my bright sewing threads
I cut out a peasant top for Miss Paige.
I went to spotlight and accidentally bought these fat flats home to gather some dust with the rest of the stash..(They are way too yummy)
Then I sewed this little number together and had a very happy customer..
And just because boys love a photo opportunity also.
How are the holidays treating you???

Why I have been missing in action!!!

I have done very little crafting of late as I am renovating my life, I joined a gym back in Jan/Feb and thought I was going to have a heart attack after 10 mins, but now I am loving it, the increased energy and the feeling of being in control of my life and being a better wife, mother and friend.. So sorry for the incommunicado but my butt has been busy stepping, kicking and squatting into a new way of life.. PS - I had to do the new jeans thing too and for the first time in 17 years I am trimmer than I was in High school....Yippee...Anyone looking for the ultimate awesome gym class, this is what I do...and its great...
