Christmas through the year--2012!!!

It's that wonderful time of the month!  Christmas through the year...2012 style has commenced!  Special thanks to Cheryl and Darlene for coordinating the program this year!  I know we all appreciate your inspiration and encouragement! 

I'm still on track with using up what I have and making do.  So here are some of my January projects:


I've been making seasonal placemats for my daughter-in-law; its' so nice when my girls actually tell me what they like.  These are what I have done so far.

Also made some Christmas penny pockets.  I have tons of accessories and embellishments and these seem like a good way to use them up:


So I also made some that could be used for Valentines too.  A couple of years ago, Sandra visited and brought a bag of craft things.  She said, "look through it and what you don't want, donate."


So I kept some buttons which I knew would come in handy some day!  Look at these little cupids, aren't they the sweetest?  Thanks Sandra :)


Have a great day ya'all and keep sewing!

You have a great collection of place mats and I love the little penny pockets. The transfers look interesting. I will collect some of those. I thought it was lovely how you made the unfinished nanna's quilt into those little bears for sick kids :)
