More Holiday Finishes!



Christmas is definitely in full gear this week! I feel bad that I neglected fall decor items so quickly, but Christmas really snuck up on me this year. I think it has something to do with the timing of Thanksgiving probably, but I'm not complaining. I love finishing things this time of year!

I stitched up this Gingerbread Cottage piece with a totally different idea on how to FFO it. Then when I realized it was a bit too large to fit in the place I needed it to, I decided to make it a basket front. Little disappointing but cute nonetheless. I'm "okay" with how it turned out.


Then I finished two more decorative holiday boxes. These boxes are pretty much my favorite way to finish things because the boxes themselves are so pretty!  They're really cute for gift-giving, cookie boxes, and just laying around the house as home decor pieces. I really try to match the colors to the box before finishing them, and then its just a matter of finding coordinating fabric to tie it all together. I lucked out with both of these.

 I have a few more of these I really want to get done this week, so back to the finishing table!
