Happy Birthday Lance!

Last week Lance got a new "ride" (see above). His old scooter was getting old, and probably had more miles on it than a scooter should have. And this new one is even my favorite color!

Today is Lance's birthday! A few friends got together last night for pizza and beers and he had a great time. Right now he's napping listening to his new iPod, wearing a new hat -- both birthday gifts.

We had a very nice thanksgiving with family in Clovis, CA. What an incredible dinner Marylou made! It was really nice to see everyone again, and we are so lucky to have another entire dinner of leftovers -- there will probably be leftovers from that as well. I was able to shop at my favorite quilting shop, Quilter's Paradise, in Clovis while we were there. I got lots of goodies and am very inspired -- I'm hoping to sneak in some sewing today.

Here is Jackson wearing one of the adorable dish-towel aprons that Cindy and I had made a couple of weeks ago. The tutorial for this is from the Sew, Mama, Sew! blog for Handmade Holidays (see previous post). It was a bit long for him, so she folded up the bottom and created pockets. I love these aprons so much that I'll be doing a small demonstration at class tonight. It's the last class of the session, and I thought a demo would be nice.

Sew, Mama, Sew!

I just heard about this great blog called Sew, Mama, Sew! and had to share it with you all. They have started their Handmade Holidays event and every day in November they will be sharing a different crafted gift item. Some have tutorials and I believe all have links to a pattern. There are lots of pictures and ideas here. November is already underway, so go back to the beginning and make sure you see them all! I'll have a logo link under my profile on the right side of the blog for easy access.
