Finally some sewing!

For the first time since Keith has been gone I actually sat down to sew. I got up this morning thinking about what I wanted to work on and the first thing that came to mind was some UFO's that have been sitting on my shelf for almost 2 years now.

I started some christmas pillow cases to be uses as make shift stockings because I had gotten gifts that were too big to fit in the stockings that my family already had. If I recall correctly I had all but the trimming and sewing the last 2 seams done when I went to mom and dads for christmas eve. While running through my parents garage I caught where the driveway had raised up from the garage and ate the concrete hard. Well being as I had already hurt my arm once and had surgery I tried to protect it as I was going down and ended up hurting everything up to my shoulder (on christmas eve.. ick). Needless to say the pillow cases never got finished.

Well I pulled them out and finished them today and will put them away for mine and Keith's first christmas as husband and wife.. I have alot of other projects planned for this year but will be happy with what ever I get finished.

They are so cute and I can't wait to see what you sew next. Doesn't it feel great to get some sewing done. We've missed you.

They look great! I don't really even want to think about Christmas, yet, but it's almost here already!
