Last Minute Christmas Projects

I wanted to share some last minute projects that I have been working on trying to get done before Christmas.

 First I wanted to share a picture of our family Kitty helping me with all of the Giveaway entering on SewMamaSew! She was quite interested in what I was doing.

 I started making Christmas stockings like I said before using Amy's Creative Side Tutorial.  It took me awhile just because of everything but finally on Christmas Eve they are finished and HUNG!

 I ended up hand embroidering all our names on them. I LOVE how they turned out!

Than back when we were moving in September/October I had a friend come help me clean our old place. I can't just take service (I have issues) so I said I would do things for her in return. So we went to Joannes and bought fabric for me to make her boys some warm quilts for Christmas.
They are now finally done!! NEVER AGAIN will I quilt fleece, 2 LAYERS of batting and flannel! It was a nightmare and to top it off it did something to my sewing machine so now I can't use my darning foot. :( The tension is WAY WAY off and I end up with tons of extra thread on bottom. Top looks great but turn it over and yuck. I have played with the tensions and cleaned my machine. Not 100% sure what else to do now so I will have to research it. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know! I have a Juki TL98Q.
Our Kitty was sad to see the blankets leave since she thought they were the best little napping place!

Than before the kids were let out on Winter break I needed to hurry and make Birthday invitations for Brandon. We are going to have a Minecraft themed party. We are inviting 5 boys, and one boy he handed the invite to tore it up! Oh I was so sad and mad! I wanted to march over to that boys house and give him a good telling off. Than the boys friend who was invited as well told Brandon he can't come. I am worried that no little boy will show up! Thankfully we are having cousins come but I thought we were making big progress in the social area and it turns out that no...we aren't. I will have to let everyone know how the party turns out after News Years.

Than I received my first giveaway prize! I won three in total :D This is from Cristali Designs! I LOVE the little doll and the earrings. This was one of my favorite giveaways. I've already worn the red earrings and I love them.

Currently my sewing area is right here in the dining room. Our computer room/sewing room is still full of boxes. Hopefully I can get that changed here right after Christmas so that I can start quilting! I am starting to get my mind rolling on different quilts and stuff that I want to make.

I hope everyone has a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR! It has been a difficult/stressful/joyful/wonderful year! And I can't wait to see what the next year will bring us!

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway

Yeah Finally I have made it! I have been trying to stay in touch to do the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway for a year now and I finally did it!

I must say that just having a baby (and being pregnant for the last 9 months) has been hard on me! But I am so happy to finally be feeling like quilting again! I am laying awake at night again thinking of the different projects I want to make! This is what I think I am going to try to squeeze in before Christmas this year. I found it on Pinterest and just love them! They have just enough quilting goodness to it I think!
It's from an awesome lady that lives close to me here in Utah, Amy from Amy's Creative Side.  She is so awesome!

Well shall we see what I am giving away??? I wish it was something a little bit more awesome....but as I said I just had a baby! But if people like scraps I have bags and bags of them!!

100 charm pieces that come in a variety of teals and yellows! (Sorry I wish I was better with the camera so I could show you the real colors of it!)

2 - 1/2 yards of Windham Fabric Strawberry Picnic

Several hundred little 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" squares! I have started cutting up my scraps into 2 1/2" squares to use in various projects and what not and I found a little bag while moving with these little guys. There is about 20 different fabric prints but I am not 100% sure. 

Now how to enter...1 entry for each thing.

1. Leave a comment telling me what your making this Christmas season.
2. Follow my blog.
3. Tell me your favorite quilt pattern. 

There ya go! Simple and easy! Leave a comment for each item so you can get a total of 3 different entries! I will draw three different winners on Friday at 9pm MST using Random.org and email the winners asap. I will then ship it all out by the 20th (a lot sooner probably). 

Feel free to take a look at my CRAZY life with 3 4 boys and what I try to accomplish! 

If you have any questions let me know!! 

P.S. Make sure that your email is connected to your profile or you leave me a way to email you...I'm not a detective and lets be honest I don't want to spend hours trying to find my winners! So if there is a "no reply" and there is not an email linked to their profile I will select a new winner! 

Thanks for stopping by!!
