I am doing my happy dance right now! BEHOLD TWO Advent Calendars are completed!! Ready to wrap and send out on Monday! YIPPEE! This Grandma made it! Phew! I was inspired by the pattern on line. Made my templates similar to hers and off I went. There were several times I had a 'What was I THINKING? TWO?' moments. A conversation with my sister about how perhaps I won't make it this year... OHHHH SUCK IT UP was discussed and that's what I did. I was thinking about making the ornaments to go on the tree too but that would have put me way behind schedule not to mention I was done working with felt! I ended up purchasing ornaments at a store for miniature trees and they work perfect-ly! Another sigh! These are out in the mail on Monday and I do hope that the grand babies will love them for years to come!
PS. Felt likes to move around when being sewn on a machine.... That was my only complaint about this project.
