As the end of the year approaches, I tend to always evaluate what I finished. That usually involves me going through the year of blog posts to see what I finish. Since I took a bit of time off of blogging at the end of this year, I have some catching up to do! LOL!!

So here are a few finishes that I whipped up this fall!

Remember this top I finished at our guild retreat this fall?

Here's the finished product!!

I donated this quilt to my darling vocal coach's husband's benefit concert. He's battling cancer right now, and in November, a bunch of fantastic musicians here in Houston got together and put on a wonderful benefit concert and successful silent auction. I was so blessed to be a part of it by donating this quilt!

The Houston Modern Quilt Guild did a black and white swap in November, and of course, I made a mini sheep quilt!

(Here's an upside down pic of the swapping items!)

This is one of my fave holiday sewing projects!!

A Tomte! Straight out of Kirstyn Cogan's book, Urban Scandinavian Sewing.

Tomten are scandinavian Santas that take care of your house during the holiday season. I gave mine to Mr Gorgeous to watch over his holiday work and his office!!!

So on his birthday (November 29th!), Mr Gorgeous heard a little squeaking outside of his home office window. And this is what he found…
