Reflecting on the past？year and resolving to make the coming year a better one？ is as old a tradition as celebrating at New Year’；s Eve. Here at WeAllSew we’；re all taking stock of our sewing， quilting， and crafting projects and adventures from？2011 and focusing on what we want to accomplish with our sewing in 2012.
Personallychristmas gifts for dad， I’；m very proud to have tackled creating an original art quilt， and although it did take me all year long (I started in January and？just finished sewing the hanging sleeve on the back this week)， I am happy to have finished it! I was also？happy to have sewed to serve others in 2011 through some charity projects； pillowcases for the APQ 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge and？quilting for charity？with the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild.personalized photo gifts for her
As for my resolutions， I’；m still thinking about it but I know it will somehow involve using more of my ever-growing fabric stash， challenging myself with another big project， and even learning some new sewing and quilting techniques.

During the holiday season, the two greenery showstoppers that get the most glory are garland and, of course, the Christmas tree. As they should. But, let’s not overlook something you likely already have that could easily use a festive spin – the topiary.
Who went to the Babies R US Happy Places event this past Sunday??If you happened to attend the event at a store in the Los Angeles area, you may have seen me pushing a cart packed full of goodies with my SIL, daughter, and niece, all in tow. Stevee just moved to Los Angeles with my 4 and 3 year old niece and nephew, Jojo and Johnny. To say she had a bit of sticker shock at rental home prices would be an understatement. Luckily for her, Jojo and Johnny are the two siblings who adore each other most in the world, meaning: They can happily share a room. Our inspiration board is pictured above, featuring Babies R Us dressers, storage bins , wooden toys, and more.
