Inventory & Christmas Photos

Well today is inventory day.......let's just say at this point we are all seeing cross-eyed!! I ran away for a moment for a break and decided I'd post pictures and do an update. We re-open on Jan. 2nd and are very excited for the new year. We'll be visiting a lot of guilds in January so are busily getting ready for those. Here are a few pics from today and the Christmas gifts we made.

Can you tell we are getting a lot done from this pic?

There are piles everywhere!!

You never realize how many fat quarters you really have until this moment. They are ready to throw the scanner out the window!!

This is an apron I made for a friend. It says cupcakes.....

A penguin hat for my 2yr old nephew.

The scarf for my 5yr old nephew.

A crochet felted bowl.

This is the bug quilt that was promised 3 years ago!! Grandma finally finished it.

So inventory is done and I just got given the scanner to update the system so I better get to it!! Hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year's!!

Inventory Reduction Sale!!

We hope all of you had a great holiday! We have thoroughly enjoyed our days off. Yesterday was filled with family......20 ppl to be exact. Along with the family came tons of food but definitely not your traditional Christmas dinner. We had a Christmas in July type dinner with grilled chicken, bar-b-que ribs, salads, baked beans, and such. Sounds crazy but man was it good. The night then dissolved into opening gifts and then challenging anyone and everyone to Guitar Hero duels. Let's just say I'm not that good and mom wouldn't even give it a try!! Today was then filled with a bunch of nothing. We enjoyed watching a movie, playing cards, and a board game. We can't remember the last time we had such an "unproductive" day!!

Finishing of Gifts!!

Still working away at all the gifts I need to finish. Here are some photo album covers I just made yesterday. I even put in the scrapbook paper so that they can just keep adding photos!

Here is a sneak peak at another gift. Can't put it all out there as I know that friend reads the blog from time to time. I've been absolutely amazed at myself that some of the things I thought in my head are actually coming out on the fabric! Everyone knows those are the great days...... Have fun back to work!

Yeah!! The journal cover I wanted to make for a gift actually came out like I wanted it to. Had a couple of hiccups as I didn't cut with enough seam allowance for the top and bottom. They ended up getting satin stitched. I'm really into just tearing the fabrics right now as it just seems easier so these are all very much raw edge! I stamped the bird and then took a silver stamp pad to get the portion under the twig. The metal letters are out of the scrapbook section of the local Joann's. All in all this was not a very time consuming project so I could definitely see myself doing another.

Hope all of you are getting close to being done with all of your gifts whether by shopping or by making!

Holiday Gifts Progress and Visitor

Hello all,

The holidays are definitely upon us or just finishing up!! We have been madly stitching away in store trying to finish up those gifts. Mom is working on a quilt that she promised her grandson...mmmmm....let's see about 3 years ago. Looks like he just might be getting it!!!

I've been knitting and sewing away. I've been pushing my limits trying things I've never made before and have been having fun. Not going to give away too much info as I know some of those people will read the blog!! One of the projects though is a sewing one that is way bigger than anything I've ever done. I'm still hoping I can finish it by Christmas but we'll see. It might be given as an unfinished piece that I need back to finish! I'll try not to take the 3 years that mom did if that's the case!!!

Well the other day as we were sewing all of a sudden mom looked up and saw a visitor outside. I ran for the camera in order to catch a picture of it.

He caused quite a stir as it was around closing time so he was catching the eye of the rush hour travelers. They just stopped and stared. Let's just say we were very glad to be inside and not anywhere near his beak or talons as they looked sharp as all get out.

Happy stitching of any kind to all!
