I’m still trying to get the last of the presents collected, then I need to wrap said presents and get some of them on the road.
This blurry picture is my latest craft-in process: little felt ornaments to give away. We’ll see how many of the 6-ornament kit I get applique’d and beaded. Note: the kit is a discontinued Bucilla one that I bought on sale a year or so ago. If you want to give felt applique a try, this is kind of a cost-effective way to go — saving on money by buying a kit in the off-season and saving on sanity by giving yourself a year to play with cutting and beading these things. The knitting I was doing has been put away because I’m tired of being tempted to blow my nose on projects. These little felt babies are perfectly safe — they’re pretty easy to throw down when I need to grab a tissue. Best of all, it looks like I can wash and dry them in time for wrapping on Christmas Eve.
What do you want for the holidays? A pleasant flight home to visit family? A break from work? Not dreading January’s bills?
I think all I want for Christmas is to NOT be sick. Just one year where only Rudolph has the red nose, ‘kay?
