when running a shop you have to start thinking about christmas much earlier than i'm comfortable with. i enjoy making the wool pincushions so much that i've taken the concept, made it smaller and able to hang and i have ornaments! the added benefit is they work up faster, too. i'll be spending many days this month working on these and exploring other projects for the holidays. my partner has started a blog on his leather work which can be viewed at http://www.manitobaleather.blogspot.com/. check it out!
