Too Early For Christmas Stitching?

I usually don't do alot of stitching for Christmas. A few years ago, during my first Christmas as a stay at home mom, I thought that making some gifts for people would be a great way to give nice gifts to people and still come in on my Christmas budget. I found, however, that the gifts were really not appreciated the way that I had hoped they would be. So now I just usually make one or two small things that I usually keep for myself. I just finished these two .

This tree is by JBW Designs and there was something about it that I just really liked.




This is by Lizzie Kate. I think it's so funny!



When I get my new sewing table I plan on making both of them into door hangers for two of the many doors here in this house. I already have the perfect fabric for the LK design. I have to see what I can find for the tree design.

Warning: I am about to get on my soapbox.

Today is election day. We are lucky enough to live in a country to wants our opinion as to who we think should be leading our country. Growing up I knew several adults who never voted. They felt it was a waste of time. Now that I'm the adult I could not disagree more. Voting is our right and our privilege. It doesn't matter who you vote for as long as you get out there, stand in line like everyone else, and make your voice heard.

Okay, I'm off my soap box now.

Off to do some stitching.
