Just dropping by....

I'm trying to keep my head above water during the hustle and bustle of this season - and not succeeding very well. Every year I tell myself that I won't take on as much, won't overcommit myself. But I do. It's hard to say no to things you enjoy, isn't it? Especially when it's making things. I made these lovelies for the WV Living Marketplace in Morgantown, WV. (If you happen to be near there, it's in the Seneca Center downtown).  

I have a few of these old rulers hanging around and I can't wait to show you what I did with them for my Christmas shelf! I plan on taking pictures tomorrow and uploading them - so I'll share them here soon. Before Easter, I hope. 

The embroidered snowflake and Christmas tree were made from felted sweaters - there's something about the texture of felted wool that I just love! It's so versatile. I especially love checking out what Betz White is up to - she is just phenomenal. Tons of good project ideas on her site. 

That's all I've got tonight, friends. I have a nasty cold and a lot of sewing to go before I hit the flannel sheets. I hope you're all have a wonderful week and wrapping up your shopping! :)
