a new year

Wow!  It's been awhile since I stopped by here.
Happy New Year!  I hope your year is off to a great start!

We enjoyed the first week of the new year spending time with family and friends in Saskatchewan.
  Now we are home and back to reality.

 I have not been busy sewing...instead I've been busy trying to get some order to all my loose recipes.  Quite the job!  I also tried my hand at making soap, which I found to be quite fun!  While I haven't been sewing at all this year, I do have a couple things to show...Christmas gifts I made.

Oven mitt tutorial can be found on my Pinterest board.

My youngest daughter got a doll for Christmas.
Of course, I had to make a couple things to go with the doll.
Or I guess I should say that Santa's elves made them!

And while we were visiting in SK, Mom made me some cozy new slippers.
Thanks Mom!  I love them!

  1. Hey, you didn't put a picture of the beautiful lap quilt you made me!!

  2. I don't think I'd be able to use those oven mitts, they are way too pretty! :) I'd have to hang them up in my kitchen for all to enjoy.

  3. Fun finishes! I really should make myself a new pair of oven mitts, thanks for the link!
