Little gifty things

Would you believe that the mug rug and the poinsettias from the last post still sit  exactly as I showed you on my sewing machine untouched. There seems to be something to do every day and time is slipping by all too quickly.  This morning, I added the finishing touches to my outdoor lights before I had to leave for an appointment.

There seems to be a little something lacking. Maybe a bit of snow. Tomorrow.

I heard the blue jays around the last few days. They arrived at the feeder and heated birdbath yesterday.

They are such a pretty spot of color against the naturals hung along the deck.

These are the crab-apple branches that I pruned from a friend's tree.

I had lots of little Christmas projects in mind but I cant seem to get to them. I started this post yesterday and left it when the computer wasn't cooperating.

The only things I managed to finish are 2 pear pincushions. The middle one is mine and I've been using it for quite a while. The pattern can be found at retro mama.

I'm linking to The Needle and Thread Network.

What a beautiful bird, so colourful and wouldn't he stand out against a snowy scene!
I have seen the pear pincushions before and thought I wouldn't mind one of those around my sewing place, yours are lovely and thanks for the link I shall head over there and download the pattern.

I think your outside looks lovely. The pear pincushions are adorable. Well done Holly.
