Time flies

Where did it go?  What happened to the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas?  While waiting for my Mother-in-laws birthday gift to be quilted, I worked on a few smaller projects.  My 2 youngest grands talked me into making them new pillow cases – I let them pick out the fabric. 

Little Man wanted a 2-sided pillowcase, while Beezer’s only requirement be that it was soft on both sides.  Mission accomplished.
My husband’s daughter-in-law wanted a new stocking for 1 year old Hank – I didn’t realize how difficult it would be to find boy-ish type Holiday fabric.  They’re outdoorsy types so I thought this print was appropriate.    

Back - can be flipped around as he gets older
Wanting something for all the Grands this Christmas, I whipped up some mittens instead of stockings for the mantel.  We have all of our kids’ stockings hanging from the railing between the kitchen and living room, but I wanted something different for the little kiddies.  So stinkin' cute!
