A Few Things I've Been Working On

This year things are pretty tight for us, so I've been working really hard on making Christmas presents for loved ones.  At night I feel like my sewing room has turned into Santa's workshop. However, I'm sure Santa's workshop isn't has cluttered as mine!  For those of you not familiar with Trey & Lucy's blog, she gives a great tutorial on how to make these rosettes.   She even updated with a video tutorial :)

I made this pretty little purple number for my Mia. I think Hayden and I will share it with her, but I'll at least wrap it up for her to open on Christmas.  This is a new design I came up with incorporating silk flowers with Dupioni Silk rosettes. I just love the combo!

Yesterday Mia had her Christmas party at preschool, so I hand stamped these little goodie bags and filled them with Christmas pencils and candy.  I was planning on making sugar cookies and decorating them with candy cane sprinkles, but realized after the girls went to be the night before that I was out of butter so I had to quickly go to plan B. Luckily I had some fun stuff laying around!  I'll make the cookies later :)

Very cute idea. You are such a great Mom!!! My sewing room looks like a bomb went off in it. I am finished with presents now, so I started cleaning it up last night. Feels a little better in there, but I'm reorganizing some things, so it always gets worse before it gets better.
