99.........and thank you to the happy zombie

I have been playing in my sewing room today.........! PamKittyMorning shared a link on her blog to Monica's free download of her "too cute" pattern for Pennie Pockets........seriously guys hop on over and try this pattern.....very quick and easy and very cute!! Thank's Monica........!!

I have been playing with Christmas colours and these are as yet "bare" and need some embellishments which I will get to in time.....but wanted to share........oh and yesterday I put the Christmas tree up and put a few decorations around.........

I had some "help" with the tree yesterday...........Mark "modelled" the Santa hat....and juggled the baubles as I was trying to sort them to put on the tree......and Chelsea was sulking because the Prince was away from home for the day..............................Terri was helpful though....she took Mark out!!

Back to the sewing room for me.......!

'Til next time..............Lorraine

Looks like you had fun making those sweet pockets, yours are wonderful in Christmas fabrics.

I put up my tree today and I'm so glad I did it. I love all the Christmas decorations.

oh your pockets are so cute, and Monica was so lovely to share the pattern.. have saved them for 'another' day to make.. maybe christmas 2010??
I put my tree up, but the naughty furry critter has pulled it down once already.. *sigh* looks like a disaster, but hey, its up!

Love your chrismassy pockets. Gorgeous! Our tree has been up for about 3 weeks, but we do have an 8 year old who tends to dictate these sorts of things!

The little pockets look easy to do and are very cute! I also like the embroidered stocking in your previous blog entry. You certainly have been busy.

those chrissie pockets are very cute, the tree looks beautiful, poor Chelsea she looks so sad, our Nixon gets like that too...the big sook.. hard to photograph though him being black.

Kim said...

VERY cute penny pockets! I saw those on Monica's blog the other day too. Let me know if you come across any instructions on anyone's blog about how to get more TIME between now and Christmas! LOL!
