If you count looking at crochet patterns, apron patterns, soap recipes, body scrubs, I am in...probably way over my head. ;-) But I need to make a decision on some things tomorrow so that I can start getting in some supplies on Thursday. Thank you for the reminder!
Yes, looking at patterns and buying supplies counts. All part of the process. Sounds like you will have your hands full with some delightful projects.
I'm knee deep in orange and black but I really love your Christmas colored ric rac. I can't wait to see what you are up to. I hope you can share it with us!
You are truly the Queen of Halloween, Kim! :-) Yes, I will share, when they are complete.
I still can't get over that Christmas is only three months away!! Love the ric rack
And time always seems to go by faster during the holidays.
Love ric rac! :)
:-) Me too!
Yikes! I'm still working on a Hallowe'en cross stitch!
Can't wait to see it! We have so many wonderful holidays in the last three months of the year, it's hard to find time to do projects for all of them.
Oh, good heavesn haven't thought that far!M :)
It's going to be here before we know it, Melinda!
I'm thinking - does that count? Actually I'm doing family portraits as gifts this year - from last summer's family reunion - so I have done more than think about it. This is a fun time of the year.
It sounds like you have it all planned out! Good for you!
I have started thinking Christmas too. Three months pass quickly and now is the time to enjoy that Christmas creativity without all the stress. Christmas cards are under production here, and some pressies in the planning :-) Pam xx
Can't wait to see the cards you make!
Your rick rack makes a beautiful photo. I don't do much crafting these days, but I sure enjoy seeing everyone's projects. Have fun!
I enjoy looking at all the crafts that people make, too. Wish I had time to do more.
I love ric-rac, it's just so fun! I'm still thinking Halloween but will be switching gears to Christmas very soon:@)
I wish I had enough time to craft for more than one holiday. But... alas I do not. So I usually concentrate my efforts on Christmas.
Gosh, the previous commenter took my comment, lol! So, I guess I'll just have to "repeat myself". I love ric-rac, it's just so fun! There now, I'm happy! We just finished our daughter's 6th birthday party, so now I am going to start baking my Christmas gifts. This year I'm getting a head start on it, since everything can be frozen. I want to relax and enjoy the Christmas season without overburdening myself. Take for example two years ago, I believe, where I was dipping home made peanut butter balls in the chocolate. At 12:30 p.m. on Christmas Eve! AND it was my first time making them! See where I'm going here?! We are toning down the commercialism and taking the time to think about and enjoy the reason for the Season, Christ's birth.
Hi Sue! You are so smart to be thinking about all the ways you can save time during the holidays. When Thanksgiving and Christmas roll around I always wish I had a bigger freezer,
You gave me a colorful Ric Rac smile . . .
Happy rick rack! I love it! I just finished my yo yo scarecrow and now I'm working on a custom garland order. I'm not making any gifts for Christmas but I always look forward to its arrival!♥
Your yo-yo scarecrow turned out really cute, Holly!
I've been making primitive wooden holiday signs. So fun.
Did you find your craft fair, Lisa?
I'll be anxiously waiting to see what you make with the rick rack! It's such a lovely trim to use. I've purchased some toweling and an embroidery pattern for winter work. Presently I'm quilting.
I'm doing a bit of simple patchwork, too... it's part of this project.
I've not even begun to give Christmas a thought!You must show us your projects so we can steal your ideas!!
I will show a picture when I'm finished. Wish there were more hours in the day. Or less work.
I'm trying to get ready for the Christmas rush already! Look forward to seeing your projects!
So pretty! I am getting ready to start Christmas sewing!! Happy sweet day! xo Heather
I look forward to seeing what you make for Christmas, Heather!
Christmas? I can barely think past today! My creative juices aren't exactly flowing at the moment unfortunately. I need something to kick start me. Maybe something for Halloween. :) Best wishes, Tammy
Halloween would be good inspiration for quick creative projects. (only about three weeks to go.)
I don't craft as much as I once did. I do love rick rack though and can't wait to see more of what you are working on. I hope you and yours have a lovely weekend
I just craft in my spare time. Wish I could do more.
This looks really interesting. :) I just used rick rack on some baby burp pads I'm sending to my niece tomorrow - I did a half dozen of them using a fabric piece on one end of a prefold diaper and edged each with ribbon or rick rack. So cute! blessings, marlene
Marlene, the edged burp rags sound lovely. Every mommy needs pretty things for her baby.
I so love rick rack and its many uses. I've got several different cookies made and frozen already. I'm hoping also to do some table runners.
Oh wow, you are really organized. Maybe I should get some baking done early, too. (Do you freeze the dough, or freeze the already baked cookies?)
Ooooh, I love the picture you posted! Can hardly wait to see what you've been stitching:)
I dont' want to give too much away, yet.
