brrr...

It's 24 degrees right now!

It's been really cold the past few days and its supposed to keep up for awhile. And its about time! I've been staying cuddled up on the couch (where a hot cup of tea is always within reach) whenever i'm not doing projects that involve the sewing machine. I've been busting my butt to get christmas gifts made and so far i'm on schedule.. deadline is the 12th.

some snapshots of the day:

i've had a mini obsession with matryoshka dolls lately, so i decided i better make some felt ones. these are unfinished..

i got this poster sized street map of Paris in the mail from a friend. I'm so in love with it, I cannot wait to frame it and put it up in our new place. Thanks Kim!!

  1. Your little felt versions of the matryoshka dolls are such a cute idea! I am obsessed with Paris (my entire bedroom theme is Parisian), do you know where your friend got the poster/map?
