... too early? Surely not! Ok, I hate Christmas muzak in the supermarket too, but I do so love seeing handmade ornaments and Christmassy bits and bobs starting to appear in blogs and on Flickr. I know it's only just October, but hey... I wanted to make some snowy things.
An applique Gingerbread House, in the polka dot snow. I made this into a little zippered pouch so it could be practical too. It would be such a great little gift with some Christmas chocolates hidden inside. Yum!
Then I made a little snowy scene of colourful houses with the tracks of friendly neighbours visiting each other with Christmassy wishes.
I'm having a minor identity crisis over whether to make more houses that are simple and cheery like the colourful snowy houses, or more fussy and elaborate like the gingerbread one. My heart says snowy houses style, but my hands and head can't stop the obsessing with detail like the gingerbread house. If you've got any thoughts about the houses, I'd love to hear them. Have you started crafting for the holidays yet?
