Did December arrive in a flash? Or is it just me? I LOVE this month! The twinkle lights, the trees, the music and the smell of yummy things baking!
I have been having fun in the sewing room making a few gifts and a few ornaments for the tree.
I love having ornaments that represent the interests and personalities of my family, so I decided that this year's tree needed to have one of the pincushions that have been so popular here and in my shop. This one is a miniature version, and I think I may actually make a few minis as actual pincushions. The fabric is The Simple Life, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE Baker's twine.
This ornament was inspired by the wonderful Helen Philipps, and the pattern for the heart is from her super cute book. Ornaments are such fun projects to sew, and they are so FAST to make and a great way to use up cute fabric scraps. Both ornaments are hanging on the tree in my kitchen, and my kitchen is a super happy place to be during December.
