WIP Wednesday

It is WIP Wednesday , it has been a while since I linked up with Monika at The Needle and Threadnetwork,  before I show you what I have been working on just look what I woke up to this morning  .
Yep a field of white , a skiff of snow covering everything and a winter sky and it is cold .... I guess I better get out there and refill those bird feeders.
 I haven't been posting much lately but I have been busy sewing so here is what I have been up to , are you ready , this could get a little picture heavy .

I made four aprons . this pattern was a new one for me to use and is by Mary Mulari , a little strange how it is constructed but I love the style. The color is a bit off here but the best I could do with the light available.

 Apron #2 , my go to pattern for aprons , the four corners apron by Vanilla House Designs.
 Apron #3 a different color than the above pattern and apron #4 was also similar to this one just a different red for the contrast so I won't bother to show that one .
I made a couple of Christmas stockings using wool as the cuff , this pattern was in a Holiday Crafts magazine by Better Homes and Gardens published in 2010 .

Stocking #2 
A couple of mug rugs 

                                                             Decorated teatowels #1&2
                                                                     #3 & 4
                                                              #5 & 6 and incase you are wondering , the angel spells out Hark !
A Raggedy Anne Doll I made who has now found a new temporary home until she is given to a little girl by Karen .

 A postcard I made and have since sold .
Another postcard I recently made , I have several others I would show you but they are in the air to their new owners and once they arrive I can share . Which reminds me , those who are participating in my little postcard swap I hope you have your cards either in the mail or very close to being posted , just a reminder our mail out date is November 15 which is fast approaching . I can't believe how fast this month is going by. Thanks to everyone who signed up , it was a tremendous response and I hope you all had fun :-)
So that is it from me today , I hope you day is extra special doing something you love . Thanks for stopping by and be sure to hop on over and visit the Needle and Thread Network to see what others have been up to this week . 
hugs Sheila

  17. Sheila you are truly amazing! I love all the projects but I have a soft spot for the kitchen towels. I have made 2 for every month. I gifted my daughter a set for her wedding three years ago and I still add to it. Thank you for sharing your lovely work with us.

  24. Wow! Am I behind, or what!?! But I've been busy, too, sticking to my 'list' and making progress, at least. Can't wait to get Miss Raggedy Ann. Didn't make it to the post office today, maybe tomorrow!! I'll let you know. I love all of your pretties. That first apron is quite nice, and those mug rugs are sweet.
