These projects got added to the Christmas Crafting To Do List, which never seems to get shorter. Also on the list are Christmasy throw-pillow covers for the couch, outdoor hanging somethings for the basket hooks by the side door and an indoor wreath made with yarn balls or bells or something cozy and creative that looks like it should be in Better Homes and Gardens or Martha Stewart. The calendar bent in my favor this year with Thanksgiving being so early I had a whole week of already being in the Christmas spirit and it wasn't even December yet (great for feeling like you've got a head start on things).
So here's a look at my crafting so far. As you can see the angel is no longer headless!
But as my husband points out, she is now bald; and back on the Christmas Crafting To Do List.
In the summer I have two hooks for hanging flower baskets by our side door. I wanted to make something festive to hang on them. The tree farm we went to had a huge pile of boughs to choose from so I grabbed an arm load. Let's just say it has been a process of trial and error, with a lot of error.

and where I'm stopping
The project I'm really pleased with is the throw-pillow cover I've finished (yes, that's right I said finished!).
Still no stocking for Cora and I've just remembered we need a tree skirt, but hey it's only December 8th. I've got loads of time.
