I got some wall hangings prepped to finish in Colorado. Thought Jackie would enjoy working on them since it was something she could do "bed resting." The snowman was a pattern, and there is also a stuffed snowman that's supposed to go with it which I didn't get done. Of course I used the pattern for a guideline, and didn't exactly follow all the instructions to the letter. I appropriated a strip of flying geese for it that had been given to Pat for our kid quilts, and I hope whoever made them won't mind! ;-)
I also used this idea to create an advent calendar. I thought making all the ornaments of felted wool would take more time than I had, so I used some of my milagros collection that Pat gave me.
I thought Jackie could count down more days toward her goal of 36 weeks for the twins. It would be good to keep them in at least that long--which is around December 20th.
Now I have to get busy and make another calendar for Lindsay, and I want one too! We don't put up a tree as often anymore, and this would be a good alternative.
