Always a project

For super saturday, several of us made nativity pillows. I think that they are the cutest idea, and are a great way to help the little ones learn the Christmas story! They are so fun to make, and well worth all the time!
So here is my latest project... Ah ya, this one has a story! Several years ago I made a whole bunch of rag christmas trees. They are adorable and I gave them all away, but never kept a set for myself. This year I decided to make some more... Ya, well the last time I made them I bought the fabric from Walmart (the $2 bin fabric). This year their selection stinks, so I went to Ace Hardware... They had a great selection, and they had a sale. 30% off -wahoo right? Well I got four yards of each and I didn't do the math... I go to the register and $72 later I was peeing my pants. You heard it - 12 yrds = $ 72. So guess what!!!!!! I am now selling the trees at a boutique show in two weeks to pay for the fabric - so my husband doesn't kill me! The fabric is super cute, and I can't wait to see how gorgeous the trees are. I'll post a picture when I am done! Truth be told I have always wanted to put some stuff in a boutique, I just never thought I would be forced into doing so!!

Those pillows are SO CUTE! I'm tempted to make them. I'm just worn out with stuff and we just started. Today I made a HUGE Santa bag and we still need to make our stockings. Yeah, MAKE. Last year it was a 4-week project and all it was was an Advent Calendar!
