We had a nice weekend. It zipped by, as usual. My only complaint was the unseasonably warm weather we are having. It is two weeks til Christmas! We want cold!!! Or as cold as we Southern Californians can get.
Saturday night was our work Christmas party. We went to the Dal Rae again. So delicious!! Today I worked in the yard a bit, and then spent the rest of the day in my sewing room. I caught up on my ironing. Did some mending and hemming for my Mom. Also for Gennifer. She wanted me to fix a dress of Hannah's that had three small tears in the back yoke. It was a woven fabric, so it could not be fixed properly. I decided to instead, hide it. I made an apple applique and put it over the tears. Because of the location of the tears, I couldn't place the applique exactly center. It had to go slightly to the right. I just drew an apple, and leaf. I used a piece of ric rac for the stem.
Top pictures if the front of the dress. Here is the back.
I got a lot done today, and it was nice to spend some time in my sewing room too. I think I can finish my shopping with one more trip. Everything I have purchased so far is wrapped and under the tree. I need to do my cards, and mail one gift. Then I am done. I hope to get to do some baking the week before Christmas. And some more crochet and knitting. Speaking of which....I won a skein of hand dyed yarn from my friend Kate over at The Garden Bell. She is one talented lady! She crochets the most beautiful things, and dyes so many of her own yarns too. When she is not creating beautiful yarny things, she is in her garden, making magic! Check out her blog, it is a fun place to visit!
That's it from our house. Going to go lay heady down now.
