some cute new softies

I never get tired of making little creatures with my leftover fabric!  This is the latest crew. 

The guy in the middle is going to my very close friend Rachel's little son, Luke, for his birthday.  Luke is the same age as my Travis.  I wish we lived close enough to hang out.  I miss her!!  She has the best sense of humor of anyone I've ever met.  I know Cuthbert will be happy in her home.
Small Stash Sewing: 24 Projects Using Designer Fat Quarters
The Party Dress Book: How to Sew the Best Dress in the Room [Paperback]    

 Here are some new books I picked up recently.
I'm totally loving the Party Dress.  I can look through this book for hours.  I'm looking forward to sewing some spring/summer dresses this year and using my new dress form.  

Small Stash Sewing is a cute little book too.  I'm always a fan of projects that take smaller quantities of fabric that I hang on to.  I'll probably make a few of these projects for the kids.  The price of this book is right, less than 10 dollars on Amazon

Well Happy New Year!

Hi! I guess I've taken a little vacation for myself these last few weeks. I think it had to do with all the sewing leading up to Christmas that it was natural to have a little break. It also could have something to do with  the Amazon Kindle I just got.  I've been spending so much time reading by the fire and being lazy.

I did get to a few minor projects, a Kindle Cover similar to Maura's for myself, and a few new pillows to spruce up the living room.  I'd like to post photos, but I'm presently having technical issues with my memory card from my camera.  Suddenly it doesn't FIT into my computer's card reader!  So either the card GREW or the T-Bomb (2 year old Travis) has stuffed something in the card reader!  I hope to have something new to show you soon!
