Christmas

7 12 2010

maybe this year i’ll write on my blog one more time =)   I’ll share a few pictures of things i’ve sewn/grown this year:

chevron curtains a la MADE that hang in our bathroom.  it matched the shower curtain perfectly.  fabric is from the clearance table at hancock fabrics- $2!

in september my sister and i went to a workshop in nashville hosted by Anna Maria Horner.  we made the proper attire skirt and learned many tricks from AMH and her sewing buddy, Alexia Abegg– they are wonderful ladies!  fabric is AMH’s from the good folks line

in September i also finished this dress from a Butterick pattern.  it was a nightmare to make (started it in april, finished it 5 months later)!  the pattern was difficult to read and something went wrong with the lining.  anyway, it looks OK with a cardigan over it!  fabric from joanns

in february i promised my baby cousin a quilt for her new big girl bed, finally in september i finished it (see a pattern here)!  why am i so slow at sewing quilts?  it’s the reason why i’m not currently making one!  fabric from hobby lobby

cowl by Jane Richmond from ravelry.  a friend i grew up with hosted knit night a few mondays this year and i worked on this project.  it’s unfortunate that the cowl doesn’t look like the actual pattern, surely i did something wrong!  i have on idea what yarn or needle i used- it was the very first knitting project i’ve ever finished and i don’t know all the knitting lingo

ZINNIAS!  we grew some flowers this summer in the side yard- they were so gorgeous.  everytime i cut some down and put in a vase, johnny cat would knock them over and spill water everywhere, that little turd.

garden minus the squash and zucchini, those died early.  the corn was a bust.  the tomatoes were overflowing through october, it was crazy.

 

a felt flower hair clip that i made for amanda for christmas…don’t worry, she has already seen it and i’ve already worn it for her

 

little rings given away at the sojourn women’s gift exchange

 

a december turkey, free from work! 🙂

 

this years christmas tree, yes, it is crooked.but perfect.

2010 has been a good year.  we bought a house, we paid off all our student loans, matthew finished more classes at SBTS, johnny got cuter, the sewing room was used a lot, we made new friends, enjoyed old friend, visited family, vacationed, welcomed lots of sweet babies into the world (friends babies, not our babies!), i took a wonderful new job.  we have been so thankful for it all, but most of all for the love and grace the Lord has shown us all year.  yay for getting to celebrate jesus’ birth!

I love all of your creations! Thanks for teaching me the proper way to sew 🙂 This HAS been a great year for the Thomas’…. you forgot to mention that your bff got to live in your basement for a week and did all the dishes for you. That was fun 🙂 Love you and love your (neglected) blog.
