So, if you've been with me since last year around this time, you know that I'm not one of those that can't wait for the holidays to pass. I linger over the holidays, and find myself humming Christmas carols well into January.
Truth be told, this transition to the new year is difficult for me-- January comes and I miss the frequent visits from family, the mornings spent sleeping in, the elaborate breakfasts, and hours of reading by the fire in the evening. It's hard to return to the faster pace of normal life when it's so cold outside.
So it was a with a slightly heavy heart that I packed up the Christmas tree this afternoon (finally!).
But I did take a few pictures of some handmade projects before I put the box up. I'd been having fun all break making some fun holiday ornaments!
First up-- a tree skirt. It's amazing how much that it looks like a real gored skirt. So easy-- and I was able to use up a bunch of fabrics from my raid on the remnant bins earlier this month.
free Wild Olive pattern.

Seasonal Stitching club... but I love the pattern.
