Pocket and Paper

i really like the look of the stitched numbers.Jessica and i were exhausted. but the pocket advents were finished just in time for December 1st. one for Jessica's house. and one for my sister's house.1/2 yard cuts from Quilt Taffy. 1/2 yard cuts and a panel from Fabrics By The Sea. white Kona cotton on front. and premium Kona muslin on back. and thanks to QT for mixing the brown polka dot with the Have A Sheri Berry Holiday prints. it inspired the brown stitching for the numbers. and OMG. did i actually machine quilt something. i stuck to my comfort zone which is zig-zag. hated it. but will try to do more of it in the future.

my Mom's paper bag advent was finished on December 2nd.she has already asked if she is getting a strawberry candy in each bag.here's a peek. i have another week to fill bags for day 13 thru day 25.

Just wonderful! They are so nice. Aren't you glad they are done, even though you hated part of it?
