“What you create doesn’t have to be perfect. So what if the eggs are greasy or the toast is burned? Don’t let fear of failure discourage you.”

So, on my to do list for the past few years has been Sophie's Christmas stocking.  I am just slow with the handwork these days, because this will be her third Christmas, and unless I really focus, there is no way this kid is going to have a stocking.

Here is current progress, and what the stocking should look like when complete.  

So, now it is out there, maybe I will be motivated.  We shall see.

In other news, I need to send out a big Thank You to Jessica!  I got this in the mail today from her!

She made them, I said I liked them, then one showed up in the mail!  How awesome is that!

Simple Abundance

I find that every time I am near a fabric store, I buy a half yard of Simple Abundance. I love the reds and blues the best. What about you-what fabric are you in love with right now? At some point, I will have enough to make a quilt. Until then, I will be working on Sophie's Christmas stocking. It is one of those felt applique stockings. I am on piece 37 of 112. Wish me luck.
