Last Minute Ideas

Here are a couple of very easy ideas for last minute handmade holiday gifts.

One of Julia's nurses from school last year just reminded me of what we gave her and how much she loved it - a hand-stitched heart of felted sweater scraps filled with lavender. I thought you all might like to see it too, considering I completely forgot the "gift of 2006." Still cute after a year.

I've been pulling out the decorations slowly and hung up this fun pom pom wreath. It's made of multi-colored pom poms of Julia yarn "hot-glued" to an embroidery hoop. The bow is a piece of felted wool fabric. I love this thing a year later.

Good luck with the last minute projects.

Love the pom-pom wreath. I just got a pom-pom maker can't wait to try one, maybe I'll start with a mini. Kristin, thanks, you saved me on some last minute gifts I need to make. Merry Christmas

As always, I love your color choices. The heart ornaments are very cute. In case I don't get back to the web in the next few days, I wish you, Julia and the Farmer a blessed Christmas and may all be well with you and yours in the upcoming year.
