Little By Little...
I started with a little velour leaf. It wasn't very pretty but I thought it might work.
Sew I got my needle and crochet thread and put some stitches into the little leaf. Now it is getting some texture.
Here is the little leaf awaiting its next phase.
If you squint real hard you might now see a little holly leaf with some red buttons that might look like berries.
Here is a long scarf (folded up in this photo) that I have attached the leaves and buttons to. I think this will look very nice as a table runner for the holidays. It could even be worn as a scarf or shawl. Very simple but completed and that is a good feeling.
Here is our mantel decorated for the holiday. Mr. C actually did all of this for me as I cannot reach it. It was fun to see how he arranged things very differently than I have in the past. He even turns on the twinkle lights when it gets dark and that makes me very happy.
Our decorations are simple. I unpacked a few boxes and put these items on the shelves. It is amazing how many "mouses" I actually do have. I adore each and every one of them. Mr. C about fell over when he saw all this STUFF! I thought I kept it simple. True to my word I am editing as I am unpacking. Some of the things I will enjoy this year and then donate. Some I let Mr. C recycle already. It makes him very happy.
May you take the time to enjoy your holidays as you rush through this busy time of year.
