Merry Christmas!

A Happy Hollydaze to you all. Did not get much sewing done. Seems holidays are so much work to make them just right. It was wonderful just to spend a quiet day with my hubby & kids. Made way too much food and got absolutely no sewing done.

So today I oiled the disposable sewing machine. Trying to get the little beast to last just awhile longer. I plan to buy a good machine next Thanksgiving when all the sales happen. I don’t need fancy….I need good solid behavior and free motion. That’s all I ask for…..sigh.

I’ve started a new type of fairy. She’s in the beginning stages. I took a picture of a friend’s granddaughter and printed her to fabric…..and am building her into a fairy. Gonna take a little while because I’m making it up as I go along…..but I think it’s going to be a cool gift in the end.


I’m just sewing the wings down and then I will start the flowers. The dress is going to be heavily embellished. Today I will put the veins in the wings while I watch a DVD. make it a nice quiet day before going back to work tomorrow. I only work three days this week and then another 4 day weekend. Since we really don’t celebrate new years around here, I expect a good weekend of sewing. Have a bunch of sewing to get started for the new year.
