Working on ornaments again!
But now it's happy; I have cut out the middle, unembroidered part and it has found its new life as the material for my 2014 Christmas ornaments. Yes, I'm sewing on them (not giving away too much of the secret) and the linen is getting all limp and delicious in my hands.
Perhaps you have been reading this blog long enough to know that every year I do Christmas ornaments for a lot of friends and family -- this year the list is just over 50.
In a good year I might be pretty much finished in September; in a bad year I might be madly sewing the last ones the week before Christmas. I guess this is a medium-bad year, with plenty of work yet to go and already halfway through November. But I have little on the calendar in the next couple of weeks, and a bunch of new trash TV on my DVR, so I don't feel frantic. Yet.
As I have in previous years, I'm going to have an ornament giveaway for blog readers, so leave a comment between now and Friday and I'll choose at least one winner, maybe more if I pick up speed toward the end of the project.
