We all need a distraction, right? Writing this blog post is a distraction from the mountain of presents to wrap, emails to answer, and gifts to finish sewing. Well, let me help distract you for a few minutes in the midst of your holiday chaos to bring you some future distractions. :-) Pattern Patti are perfect beginner projects in a range of styles. messenger bags and initial applique purses for the little ones in your life to more utilitarian tote bags for going to the market or yoga, these patterns offer quick weekend (or even evening!) projects that give you that feeling of instant gratification.

The whole "calm" thing isn't happening so much around here these days! I feel like I've been running for about six weeks straight. Sun up (sometimes earlier) to sun down (and must definitely later), there is work to be done. Spool Birds made a fine pair of ornaments for the Cincinnati Modern Guild December swap. this felt garland tutorial from Purl Bee was a perfect mother-daughter project to adorn our fireplace. I cut out all the circle and put them in a bag.

One of the things you can never have too many of when there's a baby around is bibs. The amount we go through on an average day is really quite remarkable. Having cute bibs around makes the never-ending mountain of laundry a little more tolerable. bib and burp cloth using the patterns in the links. blogged about before. But, the effect is nice and worth the trouble. Amy of Lots of Pink Here. The prints are classics, and I've saved every scrap to use for future projects. Who knows where they may show up next!?
