Half Eaten Gingerbread Man Project

My Handmade Christmas Ornament Countdown starts today! Making one handmade ornament a week will surely go a long way in creating a menagerie of unique handmade ornaments inspired by lovely sewing blogs from all over the world. I'm happy to invite everyone for a sew along! Check out the Christmas Ornament Countdown link at the bottom right side of this blog. It's an ever growing list! If you have an ornament pattern to share, please feel free to drop me a note!

Mmm, freshly laundered Freshcut and Michael Miller fabrics ready for some sewing fun. I hope I can make a pretty project out of this pile.

It's a rainy evening and I'm being lulled to sleep by the pitter patter of rain on the roof and the billowy breeze. I think I'm ready to collapse into a pile of soft, fluffy clouds. Goodnight and happy weekend everyone!
