A little break for a Christmas project

I've been busy in my sewing studio today working on a little project for next Christmas. I know it's kind of mean; I can't show it all because I'm not sure where it's going yet. And since I'm not getting anything else done, I'm showing you a peak.

I've drawn up designs inspired by vintage ornaments and used Inktense pencils to color them.
I should get it finished in a few days and then I'll get back to the shanties.
Tomorrow, I'm going out for lunch and then Saturday is a guild UFO day where I will work on the quilt I started at retreat.
I'm quite the gadabout aren't I?
Has anyone tried growing your own sprouts? I've started just this year and I have to say, it is rewarding in the middle of winter to grow something for your salad.

I have a selection of vintage ornaments that I love taking out each Christmas - they are so fragile though! I really like your idea of growing fresh sprouts - I move my rosemary indoors each winter and it is delightful to use in cooking. I am just going to start my basil seeds and tomatoes soon..gotta keep believing this cold will eventually go, eh?

Do you find the Inktense crayons are permanent on fabric? Washable?
