it has officially begun...

fruitcake with thread

Even though we're still in October, I've already started working on Christmas gifts. Which is, of course, the smart thing to do. But there I go rushing through fall again. (Mind you, it's so cold that it's easy to imagine that winter is here.)

Above is a new design (which will be available once I stitch it), and I'm thinking that it will end up as my grandpa's Christmas gift. Maybe. He's a difficult one to make things for.

I've also begun the list of things that I'll be making for the ones I love. A list which will probably grow as Christmas comes near, as I get so into crafting and giving gifts!

Oh, and a sidenote: I'm planning on updating the layout of the blog this week, but as I do, things may get a bit wonky. Bear with me.


  1. Me too! I've just made the most impossible holiday decor. / gift list.

  2. Gosh, I wish I had started in May--even though it seems like the end of Oct ought to be fine. Can't wait to see the new design.
