I won't be talking to you for a couple of days, so I thought I would pop in and say Merry Christmas now!
There has been some last-minute crafting, contrary to everything I hold dear, specifically making the resolution each Christmas to begin a Christmas project in January, putting it off for eleven and three-fourths months, and then deciding to do it the next year, starting right away in January. And so on...
No, I violated this most basic tenet and used that last week to make new stockings! For many years I've been carting around/hoarding/musing over these wool pieces.
They are from skirts that a friend gave me. What to do with it all?
I've also been contemplating new stockings, but having no idea which way to go, and certainly having no intention of needlepointing, quilting, or otherwise obsessing over what amounts to a lot of work. (Although dear Annie did say, sweetly, "Isn't that a big project to be starting now?" Humbug.)
And I told you I'd be using that ribbon...although I'm not absolutely sure about it, and maybe next year I'll figure something else out. Soon I'll show you a picture in situ, but for now, here you go...
May you all have a wonderful, very Merry Christmas! Check in with you on the other side! XOXO!
