Where Does The Time Go?

Happy Holidays, blogging friends! I hope all of you haven't been caught up in a last minute Christmas rush like I have. I spent most of the afternoon and evening wrapping presents, and I still have two ornaments I'd like to get "finished" before Christmas Eve.
I spent a lot of time last week making vinyl mesh project bags. I made two large ones and two small ones. One of each for a friend and one of each for me.

The two large ones are trimmed with this wonderful sampler fabric I found at Shakespeare Peddler. I love it and can't wait to use the rest of it for something.

The two smaller ones are trimmed with Moda fabric by Blackbird Designs. I've got more of these to sew into something too. I've been doing very little stitching but did manage to finish LHN's Winter Sampler. I've got some candycane fabric that I hope will work to make it into a pillow. But I'm sure that won't happen until after Christmas.

My only other finish this month was an ornament for a dear friend. I stitched Homespun Elegance's 2009 Santa for her.

I hope to get back here before Christmas to show you a wonderful gift I received. I still need to take the pictures. But if I don't I want to wish you all the Merriest Christmas and a wonderful time with family and friends.

Great pouches, Kathy! Love the sampler fabric you used on both sizes! Your tree looks fabulous with all those stitched ornaments!

Merry Christmas to you!

Your Christmas tree is just lovely!

I just LOVE those mesh bags. Wonderful. Especially with that fabulous fabric.

I also love your LHN sampler pieces. Well done. I can't wait to see it as a pillow.

And the ornament is perfect. I love the Homespun Elegance oranments. And one day I might even stitch them. LOL

I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas.
