The big reveal

I had a wonderful Christmas at my Mom's. It was so nice spending the holiday with my Mom, Ben and friends. I also got to see my niece, her boyfriend and their assorted girls. It was a very busy, very fun week. Now it's back to real life (isn't Christmas always a little surreal) and normal day to day chores and activities that I haven't had time for the last few weeks.

But before that begins I need to have the big reveal...what have I been making the past few months? To plagiarize myself:

So after making my prototype I went into production and made 5 more, still have one to go but it is not a gift. Bow Tuck Totes - by the 5th one these were a breeze.

I also made four of something else - these were really fast and easy, plus I got to practice more free motion quilting. Sewing mats - although one of them will be used as a laptop mat. I got the pattern from Jenny at Elefantz.
Along with all that I made a big one of this, A quilt for Ben. The pattern is Illusions in Neutrals, American Patchwork & Quilting December 2009 and the fabric is Northcott's Stonehenge.

and this cute thing. An apron for my Mom, made from a pre-printed panel.

Plus the three little girls skirts Pink, blue and red, got them fitted and shortened while the girls were there.
and three puppies. Pink, blue and red - the girls liked their puppies.

As wonderful as the holiday was it's nice to be home again, to sleep in my own bed and cuddle with my kitties.
