Some Late Night Christmas Sewing

Did you have a nice Christmas?  We surely did.  We attended a lovely Christmas Eve service at Church...just lovely.  Then we woke up to open presents on Christmas Day, much to Buddy's delight.  That Santa fellow sure treated him well. Then we were off for a bit of a drive, and a nice family dinner.


When we got home, the house was pretty quiet.  I wandered into my clean sewing room and actually felt like doing a bit of sewing.  So, at first...I was just going to read the pattern for the half apron.  Then I was just going to cut my pieces.  But, then I ended up getting quite a bit of sewing done.  I did end up altering the pattern a bit, I just was not up to learning a new applique pattern that late....but I still like it.  I am not sure I have enough material for bias tape.  If that is the case, it will not get done today and I will have to order some material.  But I have enough of it done, that I think you can see what I have been up to.

Glad you had a great Christmas!! Don't you just love when you go into the sewing room, not really intending to do anything, but produce something so beautiful? I love those days.

What a cute apron, I love it. I know, sometimes you get on a roll with the sewing and get much accomplished. Sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas.

A very pretty apron. Such soft colours, and I love the scallops. Sometimes, when it's quiet, late night sewing can accomplish a lot.

It sounds like a wonderful Christmas. I love seeing the big smile!!!

Your quiet time in the sewing studio turned out to be very productive. Bet it was a great feeling too.
