I seemed to have caught the Christmas bug a little earlier than usual. Maybe it's because I signed up for the Holiday Ornament Swap over at Freshly Blended. I'm in the midst of a crafting blitz - came out of the blue but there I was late last night, cutting tiny bits of felt and flinging cotton about and jabbing my finger repeatedly with a needle...a sure sign it's time to down tools.

Anyway. Looking around for inspiration about what to make. Found some good ideas here - like the buttons but might try something different. Some sweet things here, too. These antique cotton decorations are pretty amazing, too.
