The Pro Jects

So, I've been in my own winter wonderland the last little bit. Man, I love Christmas. I'm never happier than I am when I have exciting projects in the works. And Christmas is an excuse to drown myself in projects. Especially Christmas on a budget...but, I'm pretty sure that even if I had kazillion dollars, I'd still be frequenting the local JoAnn's. Let's be honest.

Ok, So I fell in love with the Vintage Kantha Stocking from Anthropologie.
I just used scraps of fabric that I had, (I also dipped into Eirene's collection) and then bought the back fabric from dollar fabrics at Wal-mart. The lining is an old sheet. Hope I don't need that anytime soon....
So, here it is. Feast your eyes out. Dreamy, right?
And here are some ornaments I whipped up. I was going to make six, but I got bored and am happy with three.

I have said it before and I will say it again. I wish I lived close to you and we could be crafting buddies all the time. I love your stuff. I also love that you see something and make it yourself. It reminds me of the first quilt I made...it's a crazy star patchwork kinda thing that I saw in a gooseberry patch catalog and it was expensive, so I made my own. I love making things and I love the things you make!! you are fabulous!

You are so talented! It looks exactly like the original. I know what you mean about crafting on a budget. Oh by the way, the craft links are back. I was working on a new list and some additions. I too wish I lived close, we all could be crafting buddies.

For Christmas, I would like you to give me a teensy tiny bit of your craft-i-ness. Please?

They're beautiful. I am in awe. And I want to know where you got the pattern (or didn't) for the baby booties you made Josie. I have been pining for that pattern for a while. Have you looked at Heather Bailey's pattern for baby booties. It's another good one. I think the site is hellomynameisheather.com or something like that.
