Busy, busy, busy...

I've been super busy these last couple of weeks.
Actually, I feel like I've been busy most of the year!

First, let me start by introducing you to my new friend... My amazing husband got me a new sewing machine for our anniversary! The Husqvarna Viking Sapphire 875 Quilt machine to be exact. Please ignore my messy craft/dining room table. My favorite feature so far...? It's got about 4.5 inches of extra room under the arm compared to my little Kenmore! I have only played with it a little bit, so I'll tell you more later. But it has some pretty fancy features that I'm not used to yet... but I LOVE IT! :) I'm thinking this will be my new main quilting machine, and I'll use my other machine for little projects.

So, I've been busy working on last minute projects/gifts for Christmas. I made some oven mitts out of this darling fabric... Metro Kitchen by Robert Kaufman.

I've been making some pajama pants too. Here are some for my mom and my son.

I've also been making lots of mini stockings... be used for this at our family Christmas dinner.

My mom requested some pillows, so I'm working on those too.

Many other projects planned this week.

Of course, I'm waiting till the very last minute to clean my house. :/ Hope everyone is having as much fun as me getting ready for Christmas! Only 5 days left! Yikes!
