Me and the boys Christmas 2006

Me and the boys Christmas 2006

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
I thought it would be fun to set the timer on the camera and take a picture of me and my guys I'm kind of surprised it turned out OK, now I should have dressed us up in cute clothes :)

Gnome hand embroidered t-shirt

Here's a little gnome I stitched a few months ago because I just love gnomes!
I took 2 pictures I found on the net and put them together, drew them on the shirt and stitched it on.
I think I could have done a much better job on the hat and maybe filled in the red on the mushrooms but after doing such a sucky job on the gnomes hat, I decided to just leave the shrooms outlined.
And the shirt is really white, I guess that's what you get when you're too lazy to set up a table top light box for photographing items when the suns down. :)

Happy 70th birthday Mom

My Moms Christmas drawing, originally uploaded by mama_blueberry.

Today would have been Moms 70th birthday, she was only 2 months away.
While my sisters and I went through her fabric stash I came across some of these Christmas drawings that she had done from a pattern, what's so funny was that it was intended to look like a little kid had drawn the pictures but with the way Mom wrote she was able to pull it off.
I think she did this at a time when she was wanting to craft and we were all too busy to want to do any crafting with her and so she did these.
Drawn on muslin (the correct color is in the bottom picture) with permanent fabric markers and colored with crayons.
I think these are just adorable. I'm going to add some Christmas fabric around the edges and make it into a pillow.
I think the pattern was something like Brown Paper Bag or something like that, I searched and couldn't find them any more.
Here's a close up of the Santa. :)

It's all about the legs

Baby legs are the current rage so I thought I would try my hand at making a pair for Gus, come to find out, Jaden really likes them too! These started out being a pair of toe socks I picked up at Target then I cut some knit from an old t-shirt and made a cuff and sewed it on the end!
All together it took about 5 minutes! The reindeer are grippy so they are great for traction.

here's Gus sitting in front of the Christmas tree modeling his new leggings!
Homemade Christmas Baby Legs
Now here's a pic of Jaden, I had to find something else to put on him because he wanted to wear the leggings because Gus was wearing them.
Tattoo'd legs
These are tattoo sleeves that I got for my hubby for Halloween. Aren't these funny?
Jaden thinks he's cool beans!
