CELEBRATE December blog tour

Today is my turn on the Celebrate blog tour hosted by Sewing by Ti blog tours. I am glad I found this group. As I thought about celebrations, I decided to go with  the idea of sharing some of my favorite makes this year.

DISCLAIMER: This post will have both quilting and sewing related items, and there may be some affiliate links. The affiliate links, if you choose to use them, do not affect the cost of what you may buy, but they help me earn a bit of fun money.  Now on to the fun stuff. These are in no particular order.

This is the sweetie dress from Ellie and Mac. I was able to test this pattern and I must say, it fit my granddaughter perfectly  and she loved it. It has the twirl factor that I think all little girls love. You can read my post about this here.   You can buy the pattern by following this link

Next up is the throw pillow and pillow sham that I made when doing a book tour with Christa  My fabric was provided by  and is from the Drizzle collection.   I appreciate them doing this for me.  This was a fun one to do, and I have a quilt underway to match it. If you would like to read more about this quilt, you can do so here.

I love these Lulu Dolman I made for a mommy and me blog hop that was hosted by Lo over at and you can read about these here. The patterns for these was furnished by and the cute snowflake fabric is from Elevated Fashion Fabrics.

I had so much fun making these things as well as more. And best thing is next year, there will be even more fabulous makes. I have so many things I want to do. So, I am going to say goodbye for now, but first I want to ask you which of these are your favorites, or what was the favorite thing you made this year?

Now, to get sewing. I have clothes and quilts to make. Grandbaby 6 is due on January 2nd, and that will give us 3 of each.

  1. I love the squiggles pillow - am doing the QAL in the spring with some fabric I won - so it doesn’t get stuck in the stash!

    1. Thanks Kathleen. The squiggles is fun to do.

  2. The Sweetie dress is one of my favorites! In fact, I plan on making a new one today or tomorrow. Love the throw pillow too!

    1. Thanks Lo. My granddaughter loves it. I need to make more.

  3. All beautiful items, it is good to look back and celebrate what we have accomplished!

    1. Thanks Jennie,

      I love to see the things I have done. I wish I could do more, but working full time makes it hard.
