Christmas 2013 Sewing Reveals

Team Dunworth - https://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comA family picture from Christmas night 2013.

We spent 11 days in California over the holidays and had a wonderful time visiting with family and friends. In the weeks leading up to Christmas I did some crazy sewing!

On Christmas Eve I gave Anne her very special jammies. She picked out the fabric, you will recognize at once her unique flare!

Charming Christmas Quilt - https://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comThis is the Charming Christmas Quilt – I am very happy with how it turned out, and even happier that they liked it!

My dad got the big surprise of the year:

Dizzying Diamonds - https://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comI loved that he liked it so much. I hope it keeps him very warm!

Finally I gave my mom a sewing machine cover for her new Janome and did some hand stitching for her. She asked me to hang it on the tree.
