This is one of those pages where one choice led to another without me having to work too hard. I wanted to make a layout about something handmade, so I found a photo of the little red felt Christmas tree decoration. Then I found a piece of MME Christmas paper with just the right size of square for stitching on; and then, when I went looking for a motif to use, a Christmas tree pattern fell out of my pile of cross stitch charts. I love that red coat, which came from a Posie Gets Cozy kit a few years back. Now, if I could find that pattern again it would be just perfect ...for Miriam's Christmas Decoration Swap (I bet she'd love you to join in too. You don't have to make anything and there's still time to sign up. All the details are here.) Or maybe I could knit something?
I've added knitting to layouts in the past too and I have a pattern for a pair of miniature mittens. If the eyes are up to it, they could make a nice choice for the swap, or they could warm up a wintery page. Hmm..
Or a bit of dressmaking? I sewed a tiny blue Alice dress for a layout once.
There's something about that sky coloured felt just makes me want to stitch. Choices, choices...
