What is it about winter that makes me want to knit, sew, and stitch? I don’t know about you, but I experience a serious craving for crafty projects in January. Usually these end up being Christmas decorations or presents. It’s not that I’m SO organized to be planning things 12 months ahead, it’s just that I so much prefer to knit or stitch without a deadline. And since I already have more hats and scarves than any one person really needs, I usually stash away completed projects for future gifting opportunities.
I haven’t been embroidering long, but I really enjoy it. I’ve pretty much taught myself from the excellent instructions included in the embroidery kits from Rosy Little Things. (If you want to try it, I’d recommend a kit with a pre-printed pattern. I absolutely hate trying to transfer a pattern onto a piece of fabric or felt.)
My latest stitching endeavor has been some felt Christmas ornaments. What do you think?
