|Isn't this so pretty? It's a cross-stitched effect from a "calendar" card from the 1960s or 1970s -- I'm guessing the latter. My scan is so detailed that I could actually make a cross-stitch from this design if I so chose.|
So when I thought about Rudolph Day coming up again this week, I thought that of course I would complete that project today. It's not happening...
Instead, I decided I would at least crack open the door to the Christmas Kitchen and just give a quick little update. In view of how busy my life has become, I'm planning just one handcrafted gift per grandchild this year ... very simple projects, all using the same pattern but different themes. We will see how that goes. I'm finding that some of the components aren't as easy to locate as they used to be, but have bought some online and am almost ready to start on the first gift. (I don't want to be more specific, as some of the recipients (or their moms!) read my blog.
Guess I'd better close the kitchen door and order some more materials now. Hope all of you are having a more productive Rudolph Day than I am!
