While trying not to buy more Christmas decor, I'm often fixing things that break. Here are some resin santa boots, which I love and just couldn't give them up. What a bummer, so sad. Boo hoo hoo. Gluing back what would stay, then used some spackle to fill in the rest. Sanded and painted. Ho,… Continue reading Santa Boot breakage
Bought this vintage sock blocker at a local thrift store for next to nothing and knew it would need (at least) one sock made for it. It's enormous. Haha, love it. Sanded, cleaned and applied some Cargen beeswax to add moisture to this dry wood and get some color. Made up a heel of sorts… Continue reading A loooooong stocking
Been locked up for so long, started knitting for my booze! The pattern is the Wine Bottle Sweater by Karla Lockwood. The hats were made by casting on the neck count and just going from there. These are a fun project and people really enjoyed receiving them! Putting this one away for next fall While… Continue reading Wine Bottle Sweaters
This 35+ yr cross stitched piece was found in an old tub of fabric and it was time to do something nicer with it. The new blue fabric is a woven upholstery fabric and it looks much nicer, right? Merry Christmas!

People love to receive them and I can't think of a more appropriate mascot for 2020. Painting and hot gluing out in the shed.… Continue reading Grinches for Christmas
It's easier for me to commit to printing, painting and some minis than knitting right now with all my aches and pains, so this is a Christmas ornament for a friend. She received it today, so I can post a photo. It's just a painted cabinet from a craft store and I printed some tiny… Continue reading Tiny Christmas Ornament
For co-workers, neighbors and friends. A little something more than a card. Hope you're having fun getting ready for Christmas, too. 🙂
I'm not a poet, but I just wanted to share my poem. I think it sums up that rush for the finish we all seem to share this time of year. ---------------------------------- It's Christmas time again and thus, the knitters all begin to cuss. Bake the cookies and the cakes! Cut out some paper snowflakes!… Continue reading A Christmas Poem for Knitters
I'm on a bit of a hiatus now doing other things for the holidays, like baking, decorating and traveling. Early, I know, but I don't want to miss sending my best wishes for you and your family for a joyous season of laughter, kindness and love. "I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try… Continue reading Merry Christmas from MyDailyFiber!
