OH MY GOSH Christmas is coming...

I'm sooo not ready! Why oh why do I always procrastinate everything till the last minute??? I have been doing a little sewing, (mostly for Halle) but absolutely NO shopping! I think I really hate shopping, and that's why I don't do it till the end. Is that weird?

Here's a little peek of the outfits I'm making for Halle, don't look Brittney!


This little dress and pants below were made from my "Woodland Bloom" collection, which is available in stores now, and the patterns are from my niece Chelsea of Pink Fig Patterns. It's the "Olivia Dress", and the "Bella Pants". You should try them if you have a little girl in your life!This one below is the little "Stripwork Skirt" from the same fabric collection, and is another of Chelsea's great patterns! It was so much fun to make that I had to make another one...



This time I made it out of my new "Soire'e" fabric collection, which will be available in stores this coming February! I still have to sew up the "Olivia Top" that goes with it. I'll post that when I'm done with it. Great...BUT, I still haven't done my shopping.... I'm relying on Santa a lot this year! Do you think He'll get it all done for me? FAT CHANCE.
Oh, and by the way, did you check out my "Twilight Before Christmas " video below yet? FUNNY!
Here's a picture of some treats my daughter Paige whipped up, and a shot of Abigail and Troy getting in the Chrismas Spirit!

Hope you are having a wonderful Christmas season! Oh, and if you wouldn't mind, I have a list of things you could maybe pick up for me while you're out doing your shopping. I'll pay you later!
Thanks a ton,
Lila

the Soire' skirt is adorable! I made one of Pink Figs skirts too but used Cotton Blossoms (mother colorway) to make a christmas skirt for my daughter, Paige. Very cute skirt!

I wish blogs had been around when my girls (20 & 22) were little; such great ideas and fabrics to choose from! And BTW I won't start my Christmas shopping until next week. I kid you not. Every year I promise to start early and I never do. I AM the Queen of the Procrastinators and I refuse to give up my crown.

You have to post pictures of Halle in them.

Have a nice, relaxing, and Merry Christmas.

We have 14 people coming to visit!
