Aprons and wallhangings for the holidays!

The apron above has the most adorable fabric!! It is from the Christmas special "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and has the entire story on it with all of the characters. I found it at Walmart and made bathroom curtains with it and two aprons. I kept one and gave the other to a friend who has become known as "Grandma Cupcake" to her grandson because of all the baking she does. She loves it.

These two are from a pattern my friend Kathie sent me. So easy and fun. I used fat quarters in vintage Christmas prints. They were a big hit with my friends and are going off to new homes tomorrow!! I plan to make more of them with all kinds of fabrics.

I love this wallhanging!! The snowman scenes are all done on the embroidery machine!!! It was a toile pattern I saw online and was able to purchase and download immediately. As soon as I downloaded them, I was at the machine working on this project. Very fun and I can keep it up all winter.

The weather here is so brutally cold and windy today. We never got above 24 degrees and the wind howled all day. Time for a hot bath and then sitting by the fire. See you tomorrow!
