Happy Holidays to all!

I swear, every year the Holiday season seems to go by faster and faster!......probably went by sew fast this year due to the fact that I spent every spare moment I had this past December banging out a bunch of aprons, pot holders and super pretty pillow cases for my family. I have been so proud of the new sewing skills, I just had to share my enthusiasm with pretty much the whole family! Here are some of the aprons I whipped out.......
YAY! All turned out great! Couldn't post when I was making them in case one of the gift receivers saw what I was making......had to keep the presents a secret!
I will be sure to post the pretty pillowcases ASAP!

Sew, Christmas is coming....Santa's on his way!
I have done it guys! I have made some aprons ALL BY MY LONESOME! Thanks to the awesomely cute pattern that I found here: Bari J. - Simple Apron Tutorial
Taking my newly learned sewing skills from the amazing Lili at Spool of Thread, I have created these FAB aprons for my sister and I:

So cute right!
We will be doing a TONNE of Christmas baking so I thought how perfect for the upcoming delicious treat making days!

Here is another close up of the pocket:
