Our really early advent calendar

No, this advent calendar isn't three months late. It's nine months early! At least that's how I'm choosing to look at it. I started it a week before Thanksgiving, but with three kids under the age of four and an old sewing machine that did *not* like machine applique, I didn't finish the binding until last night. Oh, well. My machine and I are back on speaking terms after a little visit to the repair shop. And the advent calendar is completed in plenty of time for next Christmas :)I'm sorry for the not-so-fabulous pictures - our weather today is not-so-fabulous. I used Oh, Fransson's tutorial on Sew Mama Sew with Kate Spain's 12 Days of Christmas and Kona Cardinal, Azure, and Peridot. And I love it and am relieved it's done. My oldest has already picked out his favorite pockets for Santa to leave him candy (#3 because it's blue, #4 because that's how old he is now, and #11 because it has Santa on it). Now on to the next project!

Enjoy all the other lovelies at Sew & Tell Friday!
