Sew&Tell Friday - Finally Christmas Sewing!!

Hi, all!

Friday again - and I finally have some Christmas gift projects to show off!  I've moved out of denial into sheer terror that I won't get everything done........

The back....

And the front!

First of all, here's a pinafore I've made for my granddaughter for Christmas.  It's from the One Yard Wonders book, and it's just too cute - the only change I made was to make the armholes a little deeper, and I made a fabric sash instead of using ribbon, which didn't hold up well in the wash the last time I made one of these.  It's open down the back, so I still need to find solid leggings and a t-shirt to go with it.  Good thing I'm going to the mall this weekend (yes, I've lost my mind!!)  I'm hoping to find a solid brown to go with this, but will take anything that matches!!

And now I want to show this flimsy I made this week.  I showed a picture of it earlier in the week, but since it was raining, I had to take the picture indoors and it wasn't very pretty or true to the colors.  Today, though, the sun was out, so I took a picture with the sun shining through it, and now it has a name - "Stained Glass"......


So those are some of my finishes for the week!  I'm going to link up with Amy's Sew & Tell Friday - be sure to hop over there and see what everyone's working on!!

Later!

OOooOOO your granddaughter's dress is beautiful - I have that book - I'll have to pull it out and have a look at the pattern!

I love your quilt - string quilts are my all-time favorites - I love the look, the anything-goes color combinations, the randomness and the stress-free aspect of making the blocks - I have string block curtains in my bedroom (to match the 100" x 100" quilt I made, of course!) - the light shining through makes the seam allowances look like leading, so they look like stained glass as well!

relax...if it doesn't get done...it doesn't get done. What's the worst thing that could happen???
Christmas will come and you'll enjoy it whether you're ready or not. ;) Cute dress.

Stained glasses, it is the words that came to my mind when I saw the outdor picture.
You must be desesparate to go shopping today. I'm so glad Internet exists now to avoid such annoyances :-)
