Day 120

Did some more shopping last night and it wasn’t even last minute! Is this the year that I turn it all around? Probably not, there’s still a mitten thumb to knit, a scarf to finish, some socks, a moustache or 2…

I’m really enjoying my holiday this year but it’s true, time does fly when you’re having fun. I’m just doing my best to stop for a minute and enjoy it all!

I’ve been sewing madly for next week’s craft fair, but I needed a little break (queen procrastinator here). I decided to sew something fancy for the SFRC Christmas party this evening.

The pattern is McCalls MP309, and I just love how it turned out. The jacquard fabric is from a flea market in Sacramento, CA ages ago and the tan trim is vintage wool.

I’ve been working hard on Christmas gifts, including these 6 gnomes from the Wee Wonderful pattern Mr & Mrs Gnome. They are so cute and were such fun to put together!

Also, there’s a craft fair at MLC (Metropolitan Learning Center ) on the 17th from 3pm to 7pm and I’ll have a table there, try to come if you’re in the area!
