Christmas crafting… already… really?
Slacking off already. This does not bode well for my bloggy experiment, but I'm chalking it up to the Halloween holiday and a horrible cold that I've been on the verge of getting for like 2 weeks now. Grrrrr. Now that Halloween is over. It's time for crafty peeps to turn their attention to the impending Christmas season. I made some delicious acorn squash soup and some pumpkin scones over the weekend (stay tuned for the scone recipe). And some of Martha's Pumpkin chocholate chip squares. So decadent... so delicious. I also managed to whip up a cute little birdie ornament. I've seen these all over the interwebs in various form and really wanted to try my hand. I like the way it turned out, though next time I wouldn’t bother with the beading on the back. Maybe some pretty fabric instead of felt…. hummm.
Anyhoo, I'll be making more of these throughout the season probably as gifts. The knitting continues to move along but I won't be posting pictures since I'm not sure whose been reading this and I wouldn’t want to give anything away. So here I go … onward to the Christmas crafting!!
