Finished for Friday: Adventures with Velvet

This needlepoint piece has been sitting in my sewing room for many months, after spending many months before that stitching it. I get stuck putting things together sometimes. So today I got out the red velvet to back this pillow. Have you ever cut into velvet? It explodes. Little red velvet crumbs all over my sewing room, and all over me. Quite a mess. But I'm glad to get this out of my sewing area and off my to-do list.

Finished any projects this week? Want to link up to a post about your decorating or tree trimming? I'd love to see.



What has the elf been up to?



Duncan chose Wasabi Girl's little guitar for a hiding place. Let's see how long it takes for her to find him. She has pretty sharp eyes.

So adorable! I don't think I have ever cut velvet, but I will remember what happens when you do.
