I think I hit a sore spot with some people earlier this week by bringing up the topic of Christmas so soon:) LOL! Oh, well....I don't like to be rushed at Christmas time so I start early...I want to be able to enjoy the month of December not be running around getting all stressed out! This is the time I start making my lists for shopping and cooking, special projects to make and parties to plan.
This week, I have been working extra hours at the shop, so work on projects has been slower. I chose some wool stuff as they are easier to pick up and set aside when I get too tired.
I love snowmen! Sometime this season, I will show you my collection! I try to bring a new snowman into my house every year, not a real one of course!, but a "lasting" one. I have had this pattern for a snowman penny rug for several years and figured I'd better get off my butt and make it! Here is what I have done so far...
Looks kind of funny without eyes, doesn't he! Do you collect snowmen?
And, I made this cute wool stocking...it's not very big..only about 9" x 3" but it works great on a doorknob! I even found some antique red buttons in my stash for the berries.Happy Stitching!
