i should be decking the halls...

but i have been sewing instead. it's not looking very christmas-y around here. we don't have a tree yet. no stockings have been hung. we haven't even addressed our cards yet. i am really dropping the ball here, folks!

we do plan to get a tree this evening. i think that may be just the thing to get me out of the slump that i appear to be in. in preparation of trimming the tree i spent yesterday afternoon cutting and sewing birds! today i am stuffing them. they are so sweet and colorful! most of them are for our tree but one will be sent off for this swap and another will go to a local ornament swap.

and lookie there, in the middle, it's a HoLLy bird! i wish i had finished this little bird before HoLLy was shipped, i would have sent it as well!

here are their pretty little bellies. i will take a photo of the whole flock this evening, perhaps posing in a holiday pine tree!

until next time,

tweets and blessings,
