Fuzzy Plaid Slippers

Finally! I have completed my FI's Christmas present. I was having issues getting them done because I just couldn't get them right and I was following a bogus pattern. Finally, I acquired just enough patience to sit down and do the math and figure them out. I told him about his gift at Christmas so that I could measure his feet and get them just right. So here they are. My Fuzzy Plaid Slippers!

Ok so this isn't something that I made, but I also like to acknowledge other peoples amazing handiwork. When I was growing up I would attend quilt conventions with my parents (My mom owned her own amazing business... check it out here ----> and I would meet all these amazing people. Well I didn't realize just how much I missed going to quilt shows until one of my Mom's old customers made me and Jesse this afghan when my mom told her that I was engaged. I was so suprised! This afghan is beautiful and warm and just amazing. I was so touched.

Ok well since I guess that this is my blog I can also point out that I made that Tumbling Block quilt underneath the afghan.

Have a nice week and stay warm!

Christmas Gifts

So I made a few Christmas gifts this year. If only I had remembered to take a picture of each of them... I made all of my sisters tie blankets. I am sure you can just imagine those, I don't need a picture for a blanket that pretty much anyone in todays culture knows how to make, or can figure out.

I made my mom a pair of pajama pants, that look similar to the ones in the post above. Except hers are brown, tan, and green paisley.

I am late on 2 gifts though, I am making my dad a dress shirt and my FI a pair of slippers. The slippers are causing the most trouble because I don't have a pattern and I am just eyeballing them, But I will be sure to take a picture of them and post it when I am finished.

Oh and also! My FI got me a serger for christmas (and that will be my gift for about the next 5 years) so here is to the start of many serger projects *clink of glasses*. My sister got me this awesome ironing board with drawers in it, So I don't have to iron my stuff on a towel on the floor (and miss the towel and melt the carpet) this new board will make it much more convenient.

I don't have any project pictures but I also adopted a new cat from the Humane Society. World- Meet Lunar! We named her Lunar because looking at her sideways she looks like a Lunar Eclipse. Otherwise known to me and my FI as Luna!
