It's the kind of year where I take pictures of the ornaments I made when I'm taking them off the tree. This year's ornaments were embroidered using a Sampler Pattern from Purl Soho. I really enjoyed making them primarily in the company of Ted Lasso.

I made salt dough ornaments this year too. I made handprint Santas of the youngest three's hands. They turned out really cute and only took two tries!

Finally! Maeve wore her birthday dress! I think it's adorable and I think she likes it too.

This is the year the whole family has matching stockings! We haven't had cohesive, matching stockings since 2015. I've been waiting until I found a stocking pattern (I'm choosey about the shape of the stocking) and fabric I love and finally that happened! On the inside of each stocking I embroidered names. I can't wait for Santa to fill these!

Here is Holly in her 12th birthday dress! Holly is very interested in all things space (thanks Lunar Chronicles!) and so this fabric is a home run! I used the Olive Dress pattern and it all came together nicely. I still need to trim threads and pull out the gathering stitches, but alas, I'm one busy momma! No matter, Holly's thrilled! The 12th birthday was my arbitrary end date to this tradition... but I think it's likely it may not end. And I guess if Holly wants me to make her dresses, I will make her dresses!

I loved working on this quilt for my baby. I doubted that I would have it completed before the birth, but fortunately I managed to pull it off! My body was so sore at the end of my pregnancy. Sitting at my sewing machine was a very short lived activity because of the pain. Here are some photos of my Ira on the quilt I made for him with love.
