Make Something

The sky is the limit for this one.  Anything goes. 


A friend and I decided to join forces and try selling these pretty dishcloths at some holiday craft fairs this year.  She bought the lovely fabric and I cut and sewed a nice edge around them then tied them together in either sets of two or as singles.  She will take them to the craft fairs and sell them.  Then we split the profit.  I just finished edging 59 for the craft fair this weekend.  I wonder how it will go.

Secret Santa

I joined in with a group of gals here at the school in a Secret Santa swap.  I love getting and giving random gifts!

My Secret Santa has been busy in her workshop making this amazing advent banner.  Each and every one of the 25 stars has an adorably hand stitched pocket on its tummy.  I love it!  Squeeeee!!!  And the set came complete with 25 delicious chocolates to tuck into the pockets.  But who can only have one chocolate per day?  Certainly not me.  

I made a couple of ribbon and bead ornaments for my secret person.  I used 3/4" grosgrain ribbon, glass beads and buttons.  I really like how they turned out!  Maybe I'll make a set for my tree...  But if I did I would probably end up giving them away to someone else.
