December Goal

I have a few goals for December but I want to finish pillows for brother and his wife with this cool Alexander Henry fabric - "Surfin' Santa". I found this fabric on clearance last year at the quilt shop and I thought it was perfect for my brother since he lives in Florida.

Kind of looks like my brother, Doze, just hangin' out having a drink!

Journal Cover

Finished the journal cover that I have been working on.
I think it turned out pretty cute. This is a paper-piecing design from this book- Playful Little Paper-Pieced Projects. I was a little unsure if the notebook that I purchased at KMart was going to fit, but it fits very nicely. I followed the measurements from the book, so I guess it was for this same size of notebook.

This is a Christmas gift for my sister, Cathleen. I embroidered her name on the front. I think she'll like it because she's always jotting things down. Linking to A Lovely Year of Finishes
