Out of the Haze

Wow! Getting so many projects going and done at once tends to make me a zombie. I'm coming out of my haze with only one project left to go for Christmas. Of course time is ticking away but I think I'll actually make it on time. It's for my sis and her hub so I won't tell it now.


Today was the guild party. I made key chains that were adapted from an idea here. You can see my little assembly area was filling up. I made 45 all together.


At the party I got a bead name tag, three fat quarters, one half yard, a memo pad, pencil, felted pocket, candy and crocheted star. Thank you all my guild sisters. What a haul.

Also, I finished my challenge wallhanging for guild and for a first try at something difficult it was ok but don't look too close. Rat's forgot a picture. If I get one I will post later.
I made twelve centerpieces for the party. They're small but I liked using buttons and spools. It took a lot more work than it looks like. Hope you like 'em.


I also finished 35 quilted ornaments (no piecing) and 15 bookmarks so I am worn out.



Ginger, my young kitty, was caught at princess practice. Now if she could just sew a fine seam. (nursery rhyme joke)

If you like to knit or crochet Drops Design has a pattern advent calendar up. I love that they do that. They are a great resource and have lovely yarn, too.
I am off to decorate the house (finally!) Hope your season is rolling merry.
