Merry December.

Posted on | December 17, 2019 | 15 Comments

December seems to be running away very quickly. I thought I had better write a post before it disappears completely.

Summer has been a long time coming. The weather has been quite mild except for the rare hot day. But of course that is about to change. We have some very hot days coming this week.

Sewing has been happening in bits and pieces. Lots of projects half finished that may have to wait until after Christmas. But there are a few little bits completed.

The one large and three small trees are a Kris Kringle gift at one of my sewing groups. They are two separate patterns from Marg Low.

Continuing the Marg Low theme, this moose is also one of her patterns.

This one had to swim across the pond to Colorado.

I have been making a batch of felt bears as ornaments for friends and family.

And a few more. The design comes from a paper stamping set.

Some are fatter than others depending on which ones were going in the post.

Then of course there was a production line for Christmas cards.

I had a bit of extra fun this year as there was another room to decorate.

I did have a lot of fun in the studio.

Lots of goodies came out of storage.

The house in now full of decorations.

Thankfully most of the Christmas sewing is complete. There are a couple of little decorations to finish, but nothing too complicated.

I hope you are ready for the big day. I now have to convince myself to do battle at the supermarket so we can enjoy a Christmas meal.

Cheers, Karen.

    Oh your sewing room does look amazing. I’m so jealous now, that I might even consider cleaning mine up a bit. (hopefully that urge passes quickly) LOL!! I absolutely love your wool work and that Moose that swam across the pond, is just incredible. He’s enjoying his new life having to deal with a bit of snow! Thank you more than words can describe!
