Art & Sewing: End of 2015 and Beginning of 2016

Given my interest in and enthusiasm for sewing, I was wracking my brain trying to come up with some sort of sewing project gifts for my kids for Christmas.  In a major “duh” moment, I realized that I had some other options!

I did this painting of my youngest son and my “granddog,” Yuma, using a picture taken when we were in Colorado in June 2015:


I also painted this one of my oldest son and his wife:


I started both of these paintings on Wednesday, December 16th, got them mailed on Saturday, December 19th, and they made it in time for Christmas on that Thursday!

And yes, I’m still sewing, too!  Minion-themed purse and two zippered pouches for a friend.


Quilted baby blanket for a co-worker and his wife and their new baby girl.

So far I’ve made 2 pairs of flannel pajama pants.  The first ones were made during a “Lazy Pants” class at Jo-Ann Fabrics in November 2015, then I made another pair in January 2016.

Also completed another large purse….


…and flannel pillow cases….




I’ve also made two long, flannel nightgowns.  From patterns!

Busy times, but fun times.  I really enjoy all things creative. 🙂
