Happy New Year!

Wow, I can't believe that is has been so long since my last post.  After the craft season ended I dove right into Christmas and didn't have time to blog.  I hope to get back on track now.  The photo above was taken from our back deck three days before Christmas.  Isn't it beautiful?  We are now in the deep freeze as is most of the US.  Thank goodness it is supposed to get warmer by the end of the week.

One project that I plunged into was making sweet Sydney a stocking.  I dug out two old hobbies, counted cross stitch and sewing, to create this stocking for her.

I am really rusty with both of those skills, but I think it turned out pretty cute.  Here is a picture of all of our stockings.

I've made most of our stockings, but a while ago when I sewed more often.  I am going to have to practice more so I can make Sydney some cute spring/summer clothes.  I also made her some bibs, but I forgot to take a picture of those.     
That's all for today.  I'll be back soon to share some paper crafting projects.  Stay warm!
Till then,
