Some more Christmas and getting organized

While I was going through some boxes today, I found these snowmen and the cute little x-mas lights. The background is batting I was going to throw away, but this is a good purpose for it!



This cute little bird I got with Sinterklaas this year. It is made of glass. I don't know yet where I am going to hang it. But just looking at it is very nice too.

And here I finished Gail Pan's free pattern. I'm not sure how I'll finish it yet. Maybe I'll keep it simple and just make a boarder around it. To be continued ...


And today I did some cleaning up and organizing. My gosh, did I collect a lot in the past few months! It is so nice to look at all the wonderful fabrics, threads, needles, ribbons, buttons etc., but if I don't get it organized after a while, I get lost and start doing 10 things at once, not knowing what I've started, finished, been in the middle of etc. I've already taken some boxes upstairs and have to get two more big boxes to get it all fixed.
Then I've found two free Christmas patterns. One is a stitchery by Sue Dailey and the other one is an ornament of a bird by Sandi Henderson from Portabellopixie.

You have been very clever in organizing your stuff, I have to do the same, I have plenty, it's quite a mess, and I get nothing done...

Thank you for the links to the two patterns - they look like fun and quick and easy to make. I did a 1 inch patchwork strip around my Gail Pan design and then a narrow binding. It's such a cute pattern isn't it?
