The crafting elves are busy!

We have been busily preparing for Solstice around here - 2 more days to go! Last night I went into the den and Z said "You can't come in here Mom!" So I went into the living room and sat down and started working on her present. She came in awhile later and I said "Oh, you can't come in here!" There are many little secret projects in the works and the suspense is building!

Here are a couple of the things I've been working on:

This apron is for one of my nieces. It's the first time I've used this pattern and I'm quite pleased with the results.

This is a colored pencil roll for Z.

I found a tutorial for one similar here and then I made this one using that general idea. Well, back to the crafting!

Ooooh, I love that, Jacqueline. I want to make one for me!! ;-)I love that owl fabric too - reminds me of a seventies fabric.

Isn't it fun to have those secret 'big doings' going on at this time of year. :-)
