Tis The Season

I am so excited about Christmas!  I have always enjoyed everything about this holiday.  I am going home today to spend some time with my family until New Year's.  I have been told this will be the best Christmas ever, so we will see. 

I made this First Aid kit similar to some I had seen online for one present.
Filled with some essentials: Wet Wipes, BandAids, Neosporin, Advil

I can't get it to turn the right way!

I also made a cover for my mother-in-law's mixer from this tutorial.  I hope it fits!  Her kitchen is green and I had some extra green Ruby.

I hate bias tape.  I decided to make it for this project and the tutorial suggested covering the seams in it on the sides.  I knew better than to think that would look good when I was finished so I just added a little piece inside the seam that I sewed right sides together.  I did put the bias tape at the bottom which was not too hard.  I hope she likes it! 

I am still working on the Ruby Lattice quilt.  I got it back from the machine quilter's (first time using them) and it looks great!  Now I just need to square it up and put on the binding.  The end is soooo close!  Finishing it up means that baby will be here before we know it.  I can't wait to hold her.  I know she is going to be precious! 

Merry Christmas!
