Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

Another Christmas present has been finished! I’m getting slightly fidgety at how well it’s all going… I’m completely on track, which I think I think is less like me than it actually is. Although I can’t be bothered to go through the blog to see if everything was done on time last year or the year before, so I’ll leave it all there.

tomchristmas1Tom’s Advent calender is completely finished, which is good because my self-impsoed deadline for posting it is tomorrow 🙂 I already have plans about how to improve this (next year I’ll try to embroider numbers on it, in some sort of glittery thread), and however Tom thinks it could be improved upon 🙂

I also got my piece of embroidery back from the framers on Monday, so yay for that! I’m visiting my aunt at the begnning of December, so I’ll give it to her then, rather than post it, but it’s good to have it ready here.

wendy2Now on to the next present- a cushion for my American pen-pal. I have a week and a half to finish this is, as we agreed to post presents to each other at the start of December, to make sure they arrive on time. This gives me a week to make a number of squares(I’m doing pansies as she said that her favourite colours are green, yellow and purple), then next weekend I can get a cushion pad and make the back and sew it all together.

I hope that all your Christmas preparations are going as well as mine seem to be right now 🙂
