I'm alive! We've been so busy and I've been trying to get lots done around the house to get ready for Christmas but I have been doing some projects.
The first was decorating our tree :) I LOVE going to pick out our tree, cutting it down and bringing it home and decorating!
Then I joined my first swap!! I signed up for the Sew a Holiday Ornament Swap over at Lindsay Sews and had a great time making this ornament for my partner. She mentioned really liking Gnomes so I was on the hunt to find a Gnome ornament to make. I tried a freehanded version and it was terrible!! So I found a great pattern on Etsy, and went to work. It was a little ambitious since I've never embroidered anything but I did some googling, taught myself some stitches and I love the way it turned out.
I've got a few more Christmas gifts I'll hopefully finish in time and be back to post about before the holidays :)
