Its after Thanksgiving, which means my Christmas projects have begun: ornaments and small sewing projects I give as gifts.
My kick-off project isn't, technically, for Christmas. Its for an annual fund raiser at the Scout House in February. I've been requested to make some more shoe bags for the raffle. Whenever I'm buying material, I keep the shoe bags in mind. I try to find something bright and/or outrageous. A hot-pepper bag I did a couple of years ago was a big hit. So at some point this year I found some more pepper material, as well as some whimsical stuff.
Musical mice! That's about as whimsical as it gets!
