Wow, what a whirlwind!

I hope you all survived! I am thrilled i made it through the holidays! While i love every minute of preparations and gift giving, it's very wearing starting Christmas "early" to get ahead in September, then finally finishing up on Christmas Eve. I do it every year! Someday i'll get ahead of the game! I have a long list of posts, so hopefully this will be a good start to show you what i've been up to, and hey, maybe you can get some ideas for next year ;)

Personal Pillow Cases
My Girlfriends Quilt Shop has the cutest, easiest pillowcase kits. I picked up three for my kids and whipped them up in no time! I did a quick decorative stitch down each cuff to personalize them a bit more. The Girls at MGQS even made it more easy by having these cute little tags made up to go with each pillow case. Then, I "dusted them with Christmas Fancy" Of course everything is more special with a little silver glitter spray on them! Oh, and one of my new favorite things (i'm new at this fabric/sewing stuff ;) is saving my selvage edges that i would normally throw away and use them for tying up packages! Save, save, save!!

  1. Ginger, the decorative stitching you did really made these pop! The fabrics are adorable, too. I want to do this next year.
