Though I haven't had a lot of time for sewing or crafting, I finally took some time to make a few ornaments - beaded ornament covers if you want to be precise - and to create patterns for them. I find beading and sewing very calming, even when it is challenging. I sometimes forget that. I am determined to fit more time for it into even my most hectic weeks.
Here are some of the ornaments I've made in the last few weeks. In looking at them together I realize my color combinations aren't classically "Christmasy" but I still think they'll look nice on the tree.

What are you working on for the Holidays? Do you have any tips for fitting more sewing and crafting into my hectic schedule? I welcome your suggestions.
