There is no avoiding the fact, Christmas is a little over nine weeks away. That's nine Fridays, not including today. I've made a list of things I'd like to make for decorations and gifts. The aim is to make one per week and post about it. You'll remember I did this last year and I can happily say it worked a treat keeping me focussed and on track.
This is a nice way for me to revisit some of my patterns, seeing what they look like in new fabrics, trying different threads and trims. It's also an excuse to remake some of those things I always wanted to make more than one of but never had the time.
The Felt Birdies from the book, All Things Christmas, is one I could keep making over and over again, just to see what it looks like in different coloured felts.
The thing I find inspiring about Christmas today is the break from traditional colours. This doesn't mean I still don't love the tradition of red and green, but there is something very exciting about decorating with your favourite colours.
