Isaiah 9:6

For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

 

Isaías 9:6

Porque un niño nos es nacido, hijo nos es dado, y el principado sobre su hombro; y se llamará su nombre Admirable, Consejero, Dios Fuerte, Padre Eterno, Príncipe de Paz.

I’m getting real crafty….

So I taught myself to needle felt and I love it! I kind of had to….I wanted to get a pin cushion ring to give to someone and since the girl was featured in Martha Stewart Living her store is temporarily closed….so I was forced to make it myself. Isn’t it awesome?! Well I’m not showing the finished product because I forgot to take the picture, but imagine it with a ring finding….and it goes on your finger. Very convenient for sewing! I hope they love it!!

Homemade Christmas Stockings…..

We are on a crafty kick in our household!!! We decided to make our stockings.  I had wanted to make them for the last two years and just barely got around to doing so.  Nick made his from scratch since he’s now a professional sewer and I just embellished mine, but they look fabulous!!!!

Cute right?! We might make this a yearly thing….

First time sewing project

So we took a sewing class at our little community center here and on our 4th class we FINALLY finished our first project: a tote. We only had one more class after that so we didn’t have time to finish the second project in class….boo! But anyway….our totes came out so good!!! …..yes the pockets are kinda crooked, the seams don’t really line up and my straps are way longer then they’re supposed to be but I’m so proud of them for being our first thing ever that we’ve sewed!! Really…it’s not our fault…the teacher is pretty bad: no patterns, no samples, no pictures, NOTHING! We were pretty much going blind…if it wasn’t for my mother-in-law we would’ve been completely lost! They look a bit wrinkled, but they’re still pretty awesome….

My tote (the straps are long enough for me to use it as a messenger bag!)

Nick’s Hunter’s tote (not quite the shape he originally wanted, but it looks so good right?)
