Christmas is sneaking upon us all at a quickening pace. Yikes! I have not got one present yet and in some instances have not even thought of anything for certain loved people in my life.
Christmas is a big deal in my house. I love it. The food, the decorating, the wrapping and oh, the tree. The men in my house think I actually become a little Christmas crazy. The boys shake their heads whilst I am in the middle of debating whether a certain glass ornament should hang a little more to the left or to the right and exchange knowing looks.
In the spirit of beginning to go 'Christmas Crazy' I have started on a few projects. I found the most gorgeous reindeer fabrics the other day that just made me go 'awww'.
Isn't that reindeer the cutest thing you've ever seen. I began cutting last night......
Laid out a few blocks ready for the 'conveyer belt' of sewing. Husband will have to wait for tea now. When I took over the kitchen bench he lovingly offered me his desk as well. I detect notes of sarcasm. LOL!
The big red square in the middle will have 'photos' of Santa's reindeers appliqued on them. I have not settled on a method for the reindeer yet; stitching, fabric paint or applique. I have been auditioning felt. Still undecided. Not sure. Plenty of viewing from different angles and playing around in my head thinking. I do like the dark felt though.
I have picked some snowball fabric also. I chose it because it looks like little specks of snow.
Sewing commences and it was all going really spiffy until I accidentally ran over a pin. Yikes!!! Was the Grinch in my sewing space? Major surgery for the sewing machine needed because the bottom of the needle dropped into the bobbin case. The pin that I had attempted to stitch looked like a giant correct tick! It was then that I thought perhaps I should give it a rest for the night and go back to drawing the reindeer. Will give you a sneak peak in a day or two!
