As the song from Gilmore Girls says “So welcome to my little corner of the world”. It’s all about me and my crafting – focusing around my love for stitching and sewing along with anything else that catches my eye. So welcome, grab a coffee and happy reading.

losing momentum

Yes Folks, it's finally happened and I've hit the wall. Last night I only managed 3 (very pretty) hearts and started a tree. I did spend the afternoon cutting the last of the felt shapes out and finishing the snowmen too. The current decoration count stands at 84 done with 23 to do. I decided to vary my colour scheme a little last night and use coloured buttons on the trees and also do a blue and white heart. I loved the way it turned out so much that I made two. The great thing about it is that it could be kept out all year.

So there are the last of the snowmen all wrapped up for the chilly weather. I brought the blue heart buttons ages ago and finally I've managed to use some of them. I'm a bit odd when it comes to the buttons in my tin. If the button has come from a piece of clothing or was brought specifically for something, I only want it on something special like a biscornu, something that I know will be treasured by either me or it's recipient.

Anyway the close up of the hearts...

The last picture is of Monday's creations. This was another day where bits got finished off. The snowmen got warm, except for the one who just got a mouth, just in case anyone is worried, He was in the group of four finished off yesterday :-) I put brooch backs on the trees and gingerbread men, put the ribbon on the red hearts and white band on the stocking and lastly made up the white hearts and fabric panels. That was the last of the fabric panels I needed to do so all 35 are complete.

Thanks for reading everyone. I hope you all have a good day, and hopefully for you one that's filled with crafting. I'm hoping for a more productive one!
