Does anyone else wonder what happened to all that time we thought we had before Christmas? While I try not to stress myself with last minute gifts, I thought I had lots of time to do a few but I'm not making the progress I had hoped. Well, I'm working on extra little things anyway, so that's OK.
It was brought home to me just how close the holidays are while I was outside this morning putting lights on a couple of our bushes.
After lunch, I sewed the binding onto my table runner. It still needs to be hand stitched to the back, but it's presentable enough to take to our guild Christmas dinner tonight as a show and tell. Another reminder of the approaching holidays!
This next picture is the beginning of an idea I had for a round table topper. I used some snowflake designs cut from freezer paper, ironed onto white cotton. Then I spritzed it with diluted fabric paint. I'm not sure about this one; I don't like the rounded edge to the snowflakes. I think I like where it's going though so I may cut more snow flakes and start another one. At the same time I will experiment and add another layer to this one. I picture adding some deeper turquoise, some free motion stitching and some glitter.
