Some Christmas Progress... and crazy creatures

 I thought I'd share a bit of what I've been working on in preparation for Christmas. There is more, but to retain the element of surprise some things will have to wait to be revealed. 
 Small Patchwork Christmas stockings for teacher gifts made from the Sugar Wrap Stocking kit at Connecting Threads found here. It was a really quick project and happened to be on sale when I picked it up. I think I'm going to put small denomination gift cards in them.

A Color Pencil roll for a friend's daughter. I loved picking out all the colors from my stash, it was so quick to put together after that. I got the pattern from Last Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts.

The  beginnings of a Mountain Laurel Dishcloth found here on Ravelry

Finally 3 crazy creatures for my three crazy boys, I was planning on making them for Christmas, but I got caught making them and gave them early, the boys are still carrying them around, dressing them and sleeping with them so it was totally worth it


  1. Beautiful projects! I ADORE those stockings! I love to quilt and sew too. Love your photos!

  2. Those stockings are ADORABLE! And don't you hate it when they see the presents. My youngest had made some money raking leaves and decided he wanted to buy a video game that we had just bought the day before for them for Christmas! Needless to say we gave it up early....little stinkers!
