Progress Photos 12/10 Christmas Cards and Stockings...

Hello everyone out there and Happy Monday!  This post is a bit late but I hope you can see the progress I have made since last week...

First of all I started a reupholstering project that I think turned out very well last Tuesday.  I am hoping to have the rest of the chairs finished by this week fingers crossed!

Also I have been busy making some Christmas stockings for the Marines in my community.

That was a fun project and I enjoyed pulling out my sewing machine and making them.  They definitely aren't perfect but I hope the men and women enjoy the goodies inside while they are away from their families and friends this Christmas.

I also have been busily crafting away on my Christmas cards I am sending out this year.  I have been busy stamping, using my Cricut machine to do paper piecing, and also painting...

 The original pattern from the a Formal Affair cartridge had teeny tiny white pieces to make the trees snow capped but I didn't have the patience to glue those together so I decided to use white acrylic paint instead and that way I could add some snow on the ground to make the scene look more realistic.

 God Jul means Merry Christmas in Norwegian!

I used the Heritage Cricut cartridge to get the piece for the back of the card.

A big welcome to my new followers and thank you to all of my followers.  I really didn't think anyone outside of my family would be interested in the things I make but I appreciate your support and encouraging comments :).  Also thanks for bearing with me as I learn more about the technical side of blogging.
