One Last Look

...Back.  This is the last day of the year on this side of the world and before I turn the calendar to a new year, I want to just blog about Stuff I've Made.  Despite all the Travel, Crazy Schedules and Family Fun, I really did get a lot of sewing done.  In fact, I have a renewed interest in garment sewing for myself--partly due to inspiration from all the sewing blogs and podcasts out there (and Nikki!) and partly because of the joy of my sewing loft in Colorado where the views and light are great and all my stuff is organized.

First there were the Christmas jammies for the Munchkins.  I ended up making them all except for Elijah's (Carters with Lego men were the ticket) and Andreas' (who is enjoying a glut of jammies and for whom I crotchet a monster hat and strings for store bought mittens).



 Kelby also had a plethora of jammies and Nikki suggested a little man robe.  Done.

Then there were Personality Appropriate Aprons for my friend Maureen's b-day in December:

Gatherin' of the Clan

Before I left that side of the world, three generations of Myers--now extended to Alexanders and Schreiners--gathered at Jana's in Richland, WA.   To have ALL of us together, with Randy (who flew in the reaaallly long route from Mongolia), was the first time in over 7 years.  Granted, we've multiplied a wee bit since then, so the dynamics of ALL have changed; but still, a major feat.  A Grand Time was had by all and so without further wordiness, here are the pictures!


We were gifted with music--selected and prepared in advance with lots of love for just this night...



We Christmas Tree'd...



 We played...hard...









Wait!  Is that little Cindi Lou Who?  We ate...a lot and all the time...
