We gave H this Hape Puppy Pouch kit for Christmas, and we sewed it up this month. I haven’t seen it available anymore, I’m not sure if it’s just sold out or discontinued. But if you can’t find the puppy, here’s the fox kit.

I did it! I sewed something, and it’s only 13 days in to the new year. I didn’t make much last year, it seemed, but I went back to work full time in July. I was a lot busier. This year, though, is my year of doing and making and reading and having some head space.

I’ve been on a blogging break all month–work deadlines, holiday prep, everyone’s been sick (I have the flu as I type this, I never get the flu). But this was our December:

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at our house this year. My family came over, there was turkey, I threw butternut squash in the stuffing, and I made an all-day bone broth with the turkey once the leftovers were eaten.

I love this time between Halloween and the full sprint of the Christmas season. It’s not quite time yet to scramble for presents and decorate everything in site. It’s cozy, November is pure fall weather, and the leaves are still bright and everywhere on the ground. But I feel crafty, and I’m in the mood to be out trekking around the neighborhood, and the woods nearby. I had a batch of leaves ready to go, so when my nephew came over last week for a playdate after school I decided to make some turkeys.

These pictures aren’t great, but it’s too drizzly a day to lay this quilt top out on the lawn for some photos, and I just realized my camera’s battery is dead. iPhone all the way.

I got a new car at the beginning of the month, and I traded in my old car’s Thinkgeek Star Wars decals for some Doctor Who decals I made at home.

I feel terrible that I don’t have any pictures of this quilt block finished. I definitely took photos of it, and now I can’t find them anywhere. I have a sinking suspicion I accidentally deleted the photos shortly after I took them. But this block was for Sophie’s stars quilt, and we had a lot of fun with this one!

This one is an oldie but a goodie, a tutorial I did for GeekMom back in 2013. The photos don’t seem to work over there anymore, and since H outgrew that original crown a while ago, I figured I’d put up the tutorial here, too. With a few tweaks and new photos. I’m just now making her a brand-new one because we are obsessed with all things princess lately.

We’re a little late here, the last month has been jam-packed. But H and I signed up for the Kids Quilt Round Robin that Sarah Nunes from Berry Barn Designs and Sarah Goer are organizing this summer. Sarah Nunes reached out to me after I posted some Instagram photos of H and her new sewing machine, and it seemed like such a great chance to get a little sewing in this summer and learn some new techniques with my new sewer.
