That said, I am looking forward to pulling out some UFO's to finish next year, finishing Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street that I started in November and making some clothes for Sophia.
Here's what I pinned up on my design wall after I finished it so I could share something with you.
This is Four Corners Children's Apron. I made it reversible. And, I embroidered Sophia's name with a cupcake on the reverse side.
She wore it a lot while she was visiting us. Of course, the side with her name and the cupcake was always showing.
And, here she is modeling her apron on the day we opened our presents. She is so much fun to be around. She will even pose with a smile for me. I'll share new pictures of Natalie and Sophia in the next few weeks.
Yesterday I was able to spend a little time in the studio with Jenny. I showed her how to do paper piecing as she has a project in mind. But that has been it for the week as I'm working on the long arm which is in another room.
