Kristin, for whom I have created ornaments in the past, asked me to fix up some ailing ornament folk--adding new strings for hanging, mainly. Working on these guys has gotten me a little bit excited about the holiday season that will, I know, arrive before I expect it. (The air feels a little bit fallish here in the mountains today!)
She also had some perfectly healthy ornaments--a set of sparkly initials and some adorable felt-and-fabric owls--that she wanted personalized/dated.
So there is a little bit of sewing going on here, even as I feverishly prepare for Fall semester. From now on, I'm just going to share all the fibery bits with you here, even if they don't seem major to me. Otherwise, I'm fairly certain you'll get tired of hearing about syllabi and poetry collections. Spoonful of sugar, right? ;-)
