Christmas in July
Well, this is month 7 of my 12 days/12 months of Christmas project. I wish i could say i'm caught up. I was ahead of the game for a while, but now many of my projects are time-intensive. Now that i have the snowflakes completed, i am caught up to the end of May. June projects are tote bags, and i've only a couple of those done. (But they are cute!)
I looked again at my schedule, and i am more caught up than i thought. Just the July stuff to do, and i have a few of the things done into August, so it is not as bad as i had thought, originally!
I also did a little knitted purse for my niece's daughter. It turned out well.
Part of the problem is that i am now on to the sewing projects, and i just don't enjoy those the way i do the knitting. The sewing is not as portable (up and down the hill) either.
Oh, can you tell that i'm rather proud of my crocheted snowflakes, too?
I had fun with them. I didn't follow a pattern (i'm horrible at following patterns). I did look at the pics of some other snowflakes, but then made it up as i went along.
So, is Christmas on your radar yet, or is it something that will be happening later (around Thanksgiving ?) for you?
Today is my dear sister Elsa's birthday. Happy birthday, little sister. I love you!
