Hello dear blogging friends! How are things with you?
I think I detect a bit of the Christmas spirit creeping in to blogland lately and I'm enjoying it.
I know Thanksgiving is still to come for those in the US, but as we don't have such a tradition in the UK, ( I'm thankful no matter!) it's full steam ahead for Christmas with us!
I read last week in Cathy of Tolentreasures blog of her challenge list with 30 things onit that she would like to get done before Dec. 25. Now I think her list is more like 50 things but she's getting thru things so quickly, go check out her blog, if you haven't already!
Well I may have taken leave of my senses but I've decided to join in this challenge - yes you can say, MAD as a Hatter! but it just might help me to stay focused and accomplish more and finish up those UFO's. Now I had to give myself a reality check and although I had 30 things on my list, I am aiming to get at least 20 things done.
Here are the 2 things checked off my list today - this is a punch needle tree and snowman - remember in my last post I said I needed white DMC floss? STILL none in my local sewing shop and as I was desperate to finish this I used the DMC sparkly thread instead which is good for snow but it's so much harder to work with.
Thanks to Shazy and Jordan for help with the pattern!
And secondly here is one pillow I'm glad to finish for my ever-patient 12 y.o. daughter! She has wanted me to make her an owl pillow for her bedroom for ages and I put it off long enough, feeling bad about not keeping my word so it's done! What do you think? I love it myself!
It fits in so nicely with her bedroom color scheme~ she choose it all from IKEA last year.
(Why is it I only just noticed the pictures need straightening? lol)
The list is still long so I'd better get to it!
Have a wonderful day and thanks for your visit! You all blessed me with your lovely comments on my last post, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Ta Dah! Life Way Shawl
