We return to our getting ready for Christmas programming...

Back in the 1970s-1990s, I used to sew a lot.  I've done some sewing here & there since then, and when I was looking through some of my stash, I found a basket with a bunch of little circles already cut out.  The prints are some of my favorite 1980s calicos...the colors are a bit deeper than the vibrant Christmas reds & greens...and the accents are ivory & a bit of metallic gold...even touches of blue.  They are gorgeous fabrics & I still have some yardage...I bought enough to make a Christmas quilt...but never got around to that. 
It's still on my to do list.

I decided to sew up these little wreaths from those vintage fabric circles...and they are currently for sale in my Etsy shop...Kitten Creates.  Each one is lovingly hand sewn...there is no machine stitching here...just handmade ornaments for a bit of Christmas nostalgia on your tree.

Now if I can get the tension working right on my sewing machine...I'm hoping to make some more of those kitty ornaments I donated to the Humane Society sale...so I guess y'all know what I'll be working on for awhile.  I wonder how much tension I'll have while trying to fix the machine tension???
