Well I have been doing a few things, just didn't have the photos ready to prove it. [and then I dropped the camera on my way to the computer - actually bounced it down the stairs - yikes! A few funky photos but I think all is OK. Phew!]
So: Borders for Christmas Lights
Sew little rectangles with 5" squares (I didn't have a charm pack, I just cut them) and tie them onto a wreath.
To become string pieced squares. I have never sewn these on paper - have you done that? I usually use muslin or something else thin (and cheap).
Are these not the cutest things you have ever seen? I found these at a fabric sale in a bin of bits and pieces. They are 'oatmeal' color yarn, about 2 inches tall. Won't they be just the most fun on the Christmas tree?
The sun is shining, so think I'll head out for a walk after some lunch. Ain't life great?
