house full of people
stretches to fit even more
holiday happy.

wrappings demolished,
floor strewn with paper and toys,
ready for fun time!

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!

sewing through flannel and fleece;
comfy, cozy day.

Last night I went into “cut stuff out of magazines” mode, the mode I usually go into when I need to do something creative but can’t think of anything too extraordinary. Here’s a mirror in progress:

The mirror’s from Ikea; it started out with a wide, unfinished wood frame. So far I’ve just been glue-sticking circles onto it, but I’m planning on sealing it with modpodge or some varnish when I’ve covered it completely.

And today I made a pair of pajama pants, start to finish, in an hour flat! I think that’s a record. It’s always fun to have a new pair of pjs for Christmas! Brand new flannel just can’t be beat when it comes to coziness.
