My P.H.D.

Yes, a P.H.D. for Lisa! It's the Projects Half Done club for me. I have started (or planned) so many projects: now I need to finish some!
This is how much is done on Andy's Christmas Overalls. I always choose a color theme for the kids and this year we picked royal blue with silver. These are a very soft corduroy with the jingle bell applique from Planet Applique- I never go wrong with their designs. Not to say the same for the thread I used. The silver stitched beautifully, but when I tried to outline the letter in blue, the thread was horrible. I ended up going over it with silver and it looks OK now.
Katie made this teddy bear cake for the Baby Shower we ran last weekend. Thank goodness that's over with!
Rosie made these cute baby face cupcakes, too! I have really talented kiddos!

This is a prototype smocked barrette for my new smocking guild. They need a project to make with 8-10 year old girls and I offered to make a sample. It's just a smocked piece glued onto a large snap barrette. What do you think??
Not yet begun are: a bargello Christmas tree skirt and stocking cuffs (7 of them- aaargh!)
I also started crocheting an owl hat for Andy, but I don't have enough done yet to share. What are you up to??
