Now I realize, it's just too dang early for christmas but well I have a few things finished and they just so happened to be themed that way.
the past few years I haven't been feeling all that chirstmassy at christmas time anyway.
I tend to be one of those people who gets stuff done, when I get it done (unless it's FOR somebody)
to top it all off its 50* and raining in the great NW.
if the furnace was still on it would have run this morning.
as it is I had to put on my fuzzies and a sweater. -.- hello juluvember.
anyway enough grousing about the wacky weather, the little christmas pouches are cute aren't they...
the first one is just big enough for a small set of keys and a cell phone
the 3 girls is tiny 2"x2" so it can hold a small present &/or be hung on the tree.
the third one is another cell pouch that has room for keys and maybe one more item
I love the horse sleigh on this one.
though I will admit to going a little crazy with the snowflakes
the next piece is a ring pillow I only had half the lace heart motif so I had to stitch the rest of it.
I also put a bunch of beads on it.
the dragonfly's wings untie so the rings can be secured to the pillow
and the last pouch is just too frilly and pink for words.
not my usual colorway but I need to stretch myself now and again and do the frilly pink thing
hey not everyone is good at cutesy foo-foo! I have to practice at it!
this is what I have been up to so far, the blooms of summer
though there has been a lot of gardening as it has been unusually warm around here,
until yesterday that is
more on that later
