It's the one time of year when I put all my other projects on hold in order to become crafty. This year I've put my vintage Singer on the kitchen table and will let it live there for a few weeks while I make:  these stockings for my children, a flannel nightgown for A, and felted pants and mittens out of an old hand-me-down sweater. I'm an absolute sucker for this time of year. And I'm as far from a perfectionist as you can get, which makes the work both ridiculous and fun.

Happy making to you too.


PS: My friend Desha has reposted a piece about my house (originally on enhabiten in May), in case you want to see what my house looked like back when I was a mother of one.
