Secret Christmas Crafting


Ooh, don’t you think it’s hard to keep quiet, when you have been working on something neat, and you want to show it off, but you can’t because it’s a gift, and the intended recipient is within earshot?  I do!  And while I know I should just pack the project up and put it away for the next few weeks, I just can’t resist letting little bits of it peek out.

It’s a nice backdrop for another, less secret, gift: a new pair of fingerless mittens (Blue Knifty Knitter loom, single strand of Patons Classic Wool in Moss Heather on the bottoms and Forest on the tops), I think.

One Object 365 Days: 334/365 11/29/08

And a perfect place to rest the subjects of a Project365 photo.

I can’t tell you what this is, or who it’s for – you never know what family members are lurking here these days – but I made it using entirely materials on-hand, including much of what was left of one of my favorite fabric collections.

I’ve already said too much.  Please pass the duct tape for my mouth. This is a tough time of year for a crafty blog…

I made something really neat today, but I can’t show you because it’s a gift for someone who may be reading.  How about a picture of my feet instead?

Prepare yourself.  I predict another fifteen to twenty of those posts around here in the coming month…

  7. Ha! It IS a tough time for craft bloggers who can’t reveal what they’re working on! I love the hint, though, and whatever it is, it’s BEAUTIFUL. The future owner will love it, I’m sure.
