The Stockings were hung with care...

No but the comfy pants are all done!
      Aren't they so cute! They are so easy to make too. If you have a comfy pant pattern just adapt the bottom hem edge. If you would like the cuff to be about 4" I cut the piece 9" so the cuff folds right up inside, use 1/4" seam to sew, then just stitch in the ditch of the hem to hold the cuff in place. The more fun the fabric the better. Just like pillowcases are fun and a great gift so are custom comfy pants. I have to thank Rosemary (one of my students) for the show and tell and inspiration, she is the one who gave me this idea and I went to town! Oh no, I think I have to buy a new serger now too!

Hi Everyone

  Well how is the Christmas rush for you? All done?  I can say that as of today that I'm all done. Other than last year when we were in Mexico, I usually have to sew well into the midnight hours on Christmas Eve. This year is actually; dare I say it, relaxing!
   My sister and I had dinner with a few friends the other night, at the last minute we had the idea to make little ornaments for everyone. You know the drill... it won't take long to make them! Oh ya sure.... a day later we finally had enough for the gang, good thing my sister was off the next day to keep stitching these little babies out on the embroidery machine.
My sister also made these cute little stitch markers for knitting. So cute.

    Look at this special gift I was given. I just can't believe it. A white feather tree. My good friend Cindy knew how much I wanted one and gifted me with one for Christmas. I still can't believe I will treasure it always.

Well everyone I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and many blessings in the New Year.
