When not at the cottage I spent quite a bit of time in this little corner of the backyard, stitching, reading and sipping my cup of tea...And this weekend, it began to get too cold to sit outside for too long unless the sun was out and still the breeze is cold. And so the bench came inside, relegated to the dark, mostly unused basement.
I am not a huge fan of cold, or snow or winter in general...but I am sure we can all agree the one thing that everyone including myself loves about wintertime is Christmas! The crafting ideas are endless! And it's wonderful to give handmade gifts!
I am currently working on a Christmas themed swap with an old blogging friend Kym who by the way just had her first grandbaby boy! So I can't show you yet what I have been making but I assure you it's going to be cherished.
Last night I dug up any Christmassy fabric I had and this photo shows just how desperately I need to make a trip to the fabric store! Eeek! I feel naked! I need to stock up :)
This morning I headed to our local library and was thrilled to find four crafty books that I had never seen before, in fact I think that I am the first one to sign them out. Loaded with inspiration! YAY!
NOW I definately need to get my
I also signed out The Nasty Bits by Anthony Bourdain <--LOVE him!
I don't usually do any Halloween crafting unless I am doing a themed swap, what are you working on right now? What kind of Halloween crafty things do you make?
Thank you to all my new readers! I am thoroughly enjoying reading your blogs and hope that we can keep one another smiling and inspired!
Enjoy your day!
