It has been such a busy and SUPER fun stretch of days, I am getting so behind on sharing here! We've had an amazing and special holiday already, with so many plans and visitors still in the works! I have some handmade gifts I'm excited to share in detail, but until I find time for that, I want to share some photos quickly and wish everyone a beautiful weekend! I hope your holiday has been as joy-filled as ours has been!!

I feel like I'm just now coming up for air after a whirlwind last few days of Christmas festivities, too! Phew. Haven't sewn for a few days either, I should probably remedy that. Starting to get twitchy. Love your fabric choices on everything above!

Jennifer @ Ellison Lane Quilts said...

The book bags are darling and love the Christmas picture at the end! Glad you had a wonderful Christmas! Happy New Year Maureen!

Katy Cameron said...

Lots of fun looking pressies there, and glad your first Christmas in your new home has been so wonderful :o)

sandyb said...

Love your pillows and book bags. I got very behind in my sewing with painting and staining carvings but am starting to make good on Christmas promises. I did get the memory quilt done for my Dad of my Stepmother's Christmas sweatshirts. He loved it.

I am so happy for you having Christmas in your new house.

Have a happy new year!!!

Rene Sharp said...

You've been a busy lady, my dear:) I have to tell you that my girls got to go see the Nutcracker for the 1st time earlier in the month with my mother in law. They were smitten. And they each came home with a Nutcracker....and a resolve to collect them. I immediately thought "YES! Someday my mantle will look like Maureens!" :)

Love the bird fabric pillow. I would make my birder friend a pillow. I can hear her laughing with joy now.

What a happy accident that I found your site through FB. While I did make many of my Christmas gifts for family and friends, I also made several for charity. There are ideas already swirling around in my head as I'm planning more gifts for Christmas 2013.

I made quilts for the kids!!!!

Anonymous said...

Love your projects, gives me inspiration to start sewing again after my carpal tunnel surgery!

debbie pfaff said...

LOVE, LOVE your projects and awesome color choices. I made all our kids fun quilts this year reflective of their own personalities and snuggle sacks for all the fur grandbabies. Handmade speaks from the heart. Thanks for all you share. (

Brenda said...

Books are one thing I give to all the kids on my list. ALWAYS A BOOK. the book bags you've made are a wonderful addition and I think that may be what I do for their Birthdays. I managed to make a lovely big Dresden plate table-mat for my friend and an embroidered throw quilt with the "princesses" on it for a cute wee 3yr old neighbour.
This Mermaid fabric is adorable. Love it and your blog.
Cheers, from Oshawa Ontario.

love the new fabric giveaway!! I did make my nephew a christmas outfit that matched my daughter and they took cute pictures together.

Sondra Borrie said...

A lovely post with beautiful images, as always. Wishing you and your family a very healthy year in 2013!

Sondra Borrie said...

Hey Maureen,
I just noticed the iron in your post, never heard of this brand. How do you like it? Just wondered.

Edna V. Victoria BC said...

I love all your wonderful projects. I made a reversible apron for my daughter and she was so pleased. Also some Santa bags and pillow cases. Happy holidays!

path7401 said...

Your projects are so beautiful! I love your color combinations. I made recyclable gift bags out of Christmas print fat quarters--everyone saved then and took them home. I don't know what they do with them, but I never seem to get any back. Maybe they use them for other things.

Melissa Loves Color said...

I did gift some handmade items this year, but not as many as I had planned. But, there's always next year, right? :)

Julesras said...

Darling fabrics - also LOVE all the bags - my 12 year old loves to sew bags. I will have to show her.
I also love all the nutcrackers on the mantle. How fun!

I really like your pillow gifts. Birds are my favorite. This year all the gifts had handmade gift tags. It was another year of not finishing the projects I had hoped to for gifts. Maybe I should start today!
