Creative Friday--crafting for Christmas
Advent is always marked by a flurry of Christmas crafting around here! I have been furiously knitting since October, and for the last few weeks it has just been hats for the menfolk in the family...I still have one to do for my husband, and then I may attempt to knit up a couple of pairs of requested fingerless mitts.
There are other holiday gifts for the kids in the works which for obvious reasons cannot be mentioned here.
I haven't had time to make all the things I had intended to make for our Etsy shop before Christmas; I'd had plans for St. Nicholas dolls and tree ornaments and such, and just can't manage it. I did manage to make two stockings from this adorable fabric, and they are available at Frost Lane. I used the scraps--too cute to toss out--to make a few little stuffed ornaments for our tree. They are backed with red felt.
I have loads to do and so many fabulous ideas (Pinterest is killing me!), that the days are too short and too few between now and Christmas.
So...what have you been up to? Drop by Natural Suburbia for Creative Friday and to see all the fabulous things being crafted!
