The quiet over Christmas was a welcome change from the constant revolving door to guests that has become the norm around here. One of the things I decided to do during that period was to pull out a few projects that I started but never got around to finishing.
This first one didn’t come out as nicely as I thought it would. I used a bread cloth for cross stitch to make a monkey napkin my grandson will enjoy using when visiting.
Then there was this Christmas banner that had been sitting here for a couple of years waiting on me. I’ll finish it into a project closer to next Christmas.
Finally, this one was only half completed so it took most of my time.
A bit of whimsy for the children to find next Halloween. I’ll be using the pant legs of a pair of black dress pants my son tore and passed on to me to do what I wanted to create a slip cover for a throw pillow in the living room.
It’s a wonderful feeling to see the pile of things waiting for me slowly disappear. There’s still a few more months of winter so hopefully that pile will disappear before spring arrives.
