The Relaxing Qualities of Hand Stitching & Tatting

I still can't seem to find my "Christmas MoJo." 

No worries though...all is well and I listen to my favorite holiday music as I pack and pack. 
It's not as if I need to hurry...I'm just taking advantage of the time I have to "be prepared." 

I'm finding the easiest solution to my moving/holiday stress is "stitching n' tatting." 

I made this little burlap tag for a friend. 






So simple, and easy.


Lucy doesn't play into the whole holiday or moving stress thing...
maybe I could learn a thing or two from her. 

Or, maybe I just need one of those zen, peace collars with a
 jingle bell. 
:-)



Hope you are able to enjoy some stress free holiday activities! 

Blessings, 
Becca

You mean like moving beds,getting the tree down from the loft, nagging and, not to be forgotten, shopping! I'm sure it will all be worth it eventually.
Thanks for reading my blog.
Happy tatting.

Oh my gosh. I love Lucy's collar! :) And your little tag is so sweet! I don't have any holiday mojo this year. I didn't put up a tree, didn't decorate and haven't been listening to Christmas music. Oh! And I'm not buying presents. We have everything we need and I don't want to buy just for the sake of buying. Good luck with all the packing. Best wishes, Tammy
