So, we've come to the end of the Occupy Your Sewing Room event. I didn't get to spend nearly as much time sewing and crafting as I had anticipated, but having a house full of little ones is a blessing too. There will be plenty of days to spend there when I am alone... but that's a forever long way off, since the youngest of my five children is 5 months old, we homeschool, and I run a licensed home daycare. So you can imagine how my sewing time is limited. Anyway, here's what I worked on...
This one to be exact. I liked the colors in the original pattern, but thought blues and icy tones would be really pretty. Guess we'll see. I'm not planning on having this done for this year. I want to try my hand at needle turn applique, so I'm getting a jump on next year's tree skirt. HA. We've never had a tree skirt, so it's not like we're missing anything by me not getting it done in a rush.
For anyone who is curious, it's from this book, which is also where I got my pattern for the "Adore" wall hanging I did earlier this month.
So there you have it. That's all I managed to complete. I had higher hopes, but I'm not unhappy with what I got done, especially given the fact that we had three new daycare kids start this week, so things were busier than usual. I still need to get a stocking for the baby done, and I hope to make the boys some new flannel pajama pants (that's kind of a tradition with me for Christmas). Other than that, I'm not going to push it. There are a million unfinished projects I should be working on, but if it's a rush and makes me stress, it defeats the purpose, right? Anyway, hope everyone else got a lot accomplished. :)
