First Project of the New Year.... DONE!

I've been working on these gloves for Dean for a year now.  They turned out pretty well.  I think they will be part of next year's Christmas gifts.  I want to use them for a prototype in order to make gloves for Nathan and the rest.  Maybe next year... everyone might get handmade mittens or gloves.  ; )  Maybe

Meet Julie.... a fun loving girl of the 70s

Mary decorated a box to hold Julie's clothes!

Inside of box ~ all neatly organized!

Mary is loving her new American Girl doll from Santa.  Momma is loving it too since Julie is 10 and the year is 1974.  I remember the styles, the games and the fun.  This doll has opened up conversations between Mary and me about the bicentennial, school yard games and fashion.  I don't know who is having more fun ~ Mary or Me.

Happy New Year in advance! ; )

Christmas is past and New Years in around the corner.  My favorite week of the year... time to sit, sew, knit and think about future.  I'm eager to blog again and hopefully for the first few months of the year ... I will be prompt.  I'm trying to finish up a pair of gloves for Dean, a sweater for myself and leg warmers for Mary.  If only I could finish them as quickly as I can think of them.

Mary is doing beautifully in Ballet this year.  She loves her teacher and is doing very well.  Twice a year, the East Pointe Ballet Company puts on two ballets.  The Christmas Ballet was called the Christmas Fairy.  Mary was a ballerina doll.  She looked beautiful.

Where has the time gone?

Thanksgiving has come and gone and I still haven't posted.  We had a wonderful holiday. Both Kate and Anna made the trip to West Virginia. 

Enjoy the pictures of my students working.  These pictures were taken in October, also.
