Checking Things Off My 'To Do' List

I've been able to check a couple of things off of my Holiday and Birthday Party to-do list - Yeah!!

Megan's Christmas Top
I love this pattern! It is so simple and goes together quickly. If the weather is cool for Christmas day she will wear it with jeans and a red turtle-neck onesie.

Megan's Birthday Plate

I did a test stitch of the cupcake applique that is going on Megan's birthday outfit and it came out good enough to use. Then the question became - what to use it for? I want to make her a birthday hat to match the outfit, but the cupcake is a little too big for that. Then I remembered that I purchased a Design-My-Own Plate and Bowl set a couple of months ago. The design fit perfectly. So now Megan has her own special plate for the party.

Megan's Birthday Outfit
The A-line top has been cut out. I had run out of stablizer after testing the cupcake applique, so today I purchased some and hope to get the embroidery done and the top put together tomorrow.

I still have lots to do over the next couple of days, but with the nasty weather we are expecting tomorrow, and being off work next week (with the little one going to day care) I should be able to get everything done without too many late nights.
