Penny Wraps Up the Year

The end of 2021 is upon us, and no, I cannot believe it, can you?

Penny (by Linda Macario) is wrapping up the year by showing you her holiday ensemble, my last make of the year. She is dressed warm and snuggly, and a good thing, too; we have snow coming tomorrow–the first measurable of the season. We’ve all been waiting… It will be magical!

Doesn’t Penny look warm dressed in “Homespun Holiday”? She wears a wooly cardigan and pixie hat along with rosy heather tights. The dress is sewn with one of my favorite holiday prints, “Under the Mistletoe” by Anni Downs of Hatched & Patched. I love the many primitive motifs and the palette of muted colors the designer used in this print. In 2015 I used this same fabric to make my Little Darling, Gina, a holiday ensemble. Here is a link to that ensemble’s post if you’d like to see more photos. Even though this fabric is probably impossible to find now Anni has a Christmas collection coming out in May which looks like there might be some cute prints included in it. Also, more pictures of her fabric here.

So as we wave ‘so long’ to 2021, Penny and I would like to wish you a very Happy New Year! Have a safe and enjoyable New Year’s Eve, too! Do you have exciting plans? It’ll be pretty quiet here by me.

Love ๐Ÿ’– from my girls and I. xoxo

    It is hard to believe Cindy that 2021 is nearly over! Penny looks so adorable in her outfit. I really like the print on the dress. She looks so happy to your last featured girl of 2021! It has been so fun following you again this year and all the girls. I’m not sure how many years we’ve been following each other, but in July I celebrated 5 years blogging! All the best for 2022 to you and all the girls, Terri๐Ÿ’—

      Happy New Year, Terri! 2022 has arrived! Thank you! Penny will need her woolies today–we are under a winter storm warning–freezing rain should start in a couple of hours, then snow for the next 12 hours or so.
      I just celebrated my 9th year of blogging! I think (just looked back a bit) towards the end of 2017 is when we started chatting. Time sure does fly… Take care, Terri โค๏ธ
