2012 In Review

Wow, as the year ends and I put together all the projects I made over the year, I realize what a successful year it was.  Before today, it didn't feel as successful because I still have so many works in progress.  Oh well, I will start that post sometime in the new year.

For now, here is a collage of all my 2012 Completions!

Happy New Year!

Custom Cover

I made a custom stand mixer cover for a customer this past month.   I love the fabric, Tradewinds by Kate Spain for Moda, piped in a lime green.

On the inside, I used the tea cup fabric to line the cover.  It is fully reversible now and I hope my customer likes the cute little surprise.

 So I started out a few months ago making placemats for my little kitchen table.  I love them and they are in my curent favorite fabric line, Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.

They take up almost the entire table, but still I love them and they have been on my table for a month now.

Over the last few weeks, we got a few new pieces of furniture, including a larger table that sits six.  So now I am off to make two more placemats to fill in the empty spots.  I still need to finish the table runner, stand mixer cover, and hot pads.  I will get there eventually.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!  I hope everyone had a wonderful day, we were all spoiled rotten around here.

Earlier this month we went to the Zilker Christmas tree, a tradition in Austin.  We had a great time, we would have loved to go back for the trail of lights, but due to everyone in the house coming down with the crud, we never made it back.

The tree was so beautiful.

 And of course, you have to take a spin under the tree.

I was able to make a wreath, not as beautiful as the ones on Pinterest, but it worked.

Then Claire had a Christmas program (she is the one with short blonde hair and not looking at the camera).

We made Christmas cookies on Christmas Eve, for Santa, of course.

Claire also got a playscape on Christmas Eve, restored by her Grandpa.  Notice the short sleeves at the end of December.  In Texas they say, wait a day and the weather changes. Tonight it will be below freezing.  Crazy weather.

Today we saw lots of family and played with lots of toys.  I even got a gift of fabric from my mom.  She bought me some fat quarters of Cuzco to play with.
