|(From my collection of vintage cards)|
So between Saturday and Sunday, mostly on Saturday, I managed a few Christmasy tasks. One was to go over my Christmas list and add in a few items I've thought of for various people. That felt good and showed me who I still need to find ideas for. I also worked on crafting some felt strawberries -- in bright red with green hulls and white seeds, they had a festive look and -- although these particular berries are for someone else -- I plan to make some for my grandkids for Christmas, so this can be a sort of trial run for that. Lastly, as I looked through my Christmas notebook, I found a note to myself about a particular cross-stitched item I wanted to make for someone. It requires buying a back issue of a magazine and also purchasing a specialty item for finishing. I've wanted to make this gift for several years now, but just haven't gotten around to sending away for those important components (mostly because of high shipping costs). I decided to just bite the bullet and order those things and have it done. Now I'm excited about beginning the project!
So that was my Rudy Weekend. Not highly productive, but I'm pleased with what I did accomplish!
