Christmas Countdown Challenge, Day 21
Oh, it simply can't be that Christmas is only 3 weeks away! But I know it's really true.
I didn't get anywhere near as much done toward Christmas today as I'd hoped to. However, 4 gift items I'd ordered arrived today, so that surely counts for something.
I stitched together 2 more fabric baskets and got a second one entirely finished. (To finish them you have to insert plastic canvas pieces and then stitch those in place. It's easy to do, but takes a bit of time to cut the canvas pieces, etc.) I hope to make 10-12 of these in all. So far I have 2 completed, and 4 more all ready to stitch.
This evening I also started work on some pillowcases I am embroidering for a Christmas gift.
And that's about it! Surely tomorrow will be better...
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
