I said I was working on a Christmas card project so here it is. This picture is of the vintage one I bought at a antique store. I love it and thought how hard could it be to make one???
Well it is harder than I thought. I wanted to use this basket with out taking it apart.
I cut out my cards ,punched them with the little holes, a hole punch is to large.
I have started sewing them together using the blanket stitch.
I will show you the finished product once I am done. I could make a thousand of these because I have a secret. I have kept every card I have ever received since we have been married, 35 years. No one can lift the box their in. But oh the memories in that box. Lots of pictures that were tucked in cards and all the cards my daughter made for us when she was little. and the cards sent by friends and family that are no longer here. I even found money that was tucked in a card many years ago for my daughter.
My dump find is pretty cool this week. A Christmas wreath, a bunch of extra branches,
and a pile of fake berries I am going to use on another project. All wrapped up nicely in a clear plastic bag. Very timely don't ya think!
Thrift store finds today was a really fun Christmas stencil book. I also got some CD's, old Billy Joel and a Bon Jovi
I went to the dentist today and I have a cavity, the first one in about 25 years. A new dentist bought out my old retired dentist. hmmm. It has stopped raining and now it is blowing and getting pretty cold. My cat ran down to the basement when she heard the husband starting the wood stove down there. She is all curled up in a basket about 5 feet from the stove.
My husband has signed us up to host the Christmas party for his work in December. So I guess I better start cleaning I don't want them to see how we really live, ha.
I love all your visits and comments. Keep them coming I guess I am begging again. Have a great night.
