2019 started off with some travel up north to visit family
and with all three of us getting bad colds.
At least we've taken care of that for the year.... I hope!
Since we were traveling, not much has happened in my
Hidey Hole, but I have big plans for this year.
Now that the Christmas decorations are put away,
I hope to do a deep clean of this mess of a room I have.
Things have gotten a bit out of control and I know that no one
else has this problem. :)
While the sewing machine has been quiet,
I have been doing some very mindless hand stitching.
Years ago I purchased a bag of scrappy wool circles.
The circles came in two sizes with about 200 in the bag.
Back in the fall I saw a garland made with wool circles and stars
and knew I had found a project for these wool rounds.
Aren't these wool pieces beautiful?
I stitched the small circle onto the large circle using silk thread.
The buttonhole stitch is not my favorite to use,
or maybe I should say MY buttonhole stitch is just not pretty.
The circles were pinned to a black ribbon,
stitched and stuffed as I sewed along.
I'm not sure how long this will end up being,
but it will be fun to use at Christmas.
I'm off to clean and hopefully play some later!
