Roosters and Owls, Oh my

My sweet daughter gave me this beautiul rooster for Christmas.  It is huge. Love it.
                                             Ruby wanted a rooster so I made her one.
                 My Mom made me this awesome apron. It was such a surprise and so beautiful.

3 New Purses Made

I made this made from some wool fabric my Mom gave me. It's for my niece Ashley for Christmas. (By the way she loved it.) I use this pattern from Cold Hands Warm Heart blog. It was pretty fast and easy to do. Wish I had a pretty braid belt like she had.

 Then I made 2 bags from Ana Graham at Noodlehead pattern.  I love making this bag and plan on making some to sell very soon. This one is my favorite, but I did make the other one.  The first one is made from corduroy for my Mom and she loved it. (She also made something for me, stay tuned).
 This one is mine. I made from some fabric my dear friend Jenene gave me. Still have some left.

Amaryllis, Christmas tree and a finished quilt

First I wanted to show my beautiful Amaryllis. They are really easy to grow.

 Then to show off my pretty tree. It doesn't change much from year to year.  That's okay I love it just the way it is.
 Been working on this quilt for weeks and finally finished quilting. Another double wedding ring I found. All hand pieced and quilted by me. This one is mine. All mine.

Made more ornaments

I read Skook's blog last week and had to make some of these cute ornaments. She did an excellent job. We both ordered from Noia Land on etsy.  She has lots of others to choose from.  These are for my precious great-nephews Aiden and Princeton.

 Then I had to make these for Ruby and Layla. They are obsessed with Adventure Land. Found these on Pinterest.

Making Ornaments

Hope everyone takes some time to sew some ornaments. They really are fun to make. I've got some others printed out to start on later.
Layla and Ruby really love Angry Birds so I've been searching for patterns.  First I found this one. I loved the idea of beanbags.  Then this post had some awesome patterns. These are Layla's and she wanted them to be beanbags. My husband (Dadoe) is making her a slingshot to use with these.
 I really adored  this beautiful ornament on etsy. I made my own. Not as pretty but I like it.

I printed out this pattern last year and just now making it. Partridge pattern is here.
 Then I made this lovely snowflake ornament found here.
